Some people tell me even if he was off for a month, he shouldn't do that is he was truely broken. What do ya'll think? This my first time with a newly broke horse. Is there any good western trainers for young horses around Charlotte, NC?????
You need to get him checked out by a vet asap. It sounds more like he is in pain rather than 'unbroken'. Horses don't continually 'buck' because they are 'bad horses'. You should never drug a horse to ride him. That is a big no, no. Please get him checked first to make sure he hasn't got a medical problem, then get an expert to help you 'back him' to ride and start again. He is a 3 year old and still immature so it could be that he has not been backed properly yet. BUT please, please don't drug your horse to ride him you could end up doing a lot of harm and I am not being a 'bunny hugger' in this. Kissing spines or back problems cause this sort of behaviour and only an expert i.e. vet will be able to tell you what the problem is. A horse who needs to be drugged to be ridden is not safe!
