I've had to deal with bucking horses before, but nothing as bad as what you're dealing with. Basically, when he went to buck I'd kick him forward. The faster he goes the harder it is for him to buck. I'd have him at an extended (very extended) trot until I decided he was calm. Bring him back down to a working trot and if he tried again, off he went to extended. I would trot to the point where he'd want to break into canter, but never allow it. Worked for me... dunno if it'd work for you. As for laying them down... never heard of that technique.

If you have seen the movie "the horse whisperer" laying down is done towards the end of the movie before the girl gets on the horse. I've done it most recently on a 17.2 hand percheron that bucked me off 4 times in one day for very little reason. After I started laying him down before riding him he never bucked again. After about 4 times of laying him down I didn't have to do it anymore. I was smart enough that time to ride in an arena with about 12 inches of fresh sand in it or he would not have had the opportunity to buck me off 4 times.

The horse yesterday definately gave me plenty of warning and I thought I had him talked out of it but apperently not.

I know what you are talking about on the laying down. I have seen good things with it as long as you can get the horse to relax. If you let them up before they relax and begin enjoying getting rubbed on they are entirely terrified though.

We have had it work on some, but I have seen one that was acting the way you are describing this one as. She didn't change after laying down. She was just one that was really broncy for about 6 months. My step-dad just rode her out until she was tired every time she wanted to bronc out, and after 6 months she got over it. (In the end my 9 year old brother rode her...lol)

As for the broken rib...ow, and I have no idea on making that feel any better. I hope it doesn't bother you too bad.

This is the best video I could find. He explains it pretty well. I put a saddle on and tie the stirrups up out of the way.

On lying down my filly was unhandled and wild. I got tired of playing cat and mouse so I roped her. She ran around tangled herself and fell. I rubbed her down and untangled her and shes been a doll ever since.
I know allot of the old cowboys would get them down and sit on them. It helps allot with trust.

Nope, doctors don't tape ribs anymore, because of the chance of bronchitis or pneumonia due to decreased lung function.

As long as it's just cracked and not actually broken to the point you have bone poking into your lung, time is the only thing that helps.

I cracked 3 of my ribs several years ago because of a bucking incident. The only things that really helped were time and booze. Jack and coke is great 'medicine'!

That's what I was afraid of. I guess I'll just grit my teeth and cowboy up.
