    Firstly, for all who say bucking isnt that dangerous, I've had a shattered wrist, two concussions(hit hard enough to break my helmet and give me a concussion), 3 cases of whiplash and a cracked tail bone from being bucked off. Training a horse not to buck from the ground up is the way to go.

    I'm all for not over protecting kids, but their is a thin line between an 'experience' and stupidity. A young girl in our area this year got on a horse, I beleive with her families knowledge, that had been known to buck. She came off wrong and was dead before the ambulance could get there.

    Sorry, but a 12 year old riding a known bucker, that is nearly immpossible to catch or bridle is silly, this horse needs some good training and a vet check to rule out teeth/pain issues.

    Seriously?? Having had and seen too many serious injuries from being bucked off, (aside from what the horse learns from every experience of it) I beg to differ. Perhaps the difference is in experience and you've never seen someone injured, because if you have & still have a 'difference of perspective', you're right that it's VERY different to mine.

    I'd have to say sometimes it may be fine to get straight back on, sometimes that would be the stupidest thing to do - say if you thought the horse was going to keep bucking - so you'd better know the difference before you consider it.
