My friend has a horse that is very energetic and bucks just about everytime she takes off into a canter. Her rider is very petite and somewhat young and she is almost afraid to canter because of the horses bucking.
Its very obvious that she bucks because she is excited and it has nothing to do with pain etc. She has been lounging her before she rides and that helps get her energy out so she doesn't have as much energy to buck.
I was just wondering if there is anyway to actually "fix" the bucking problem instead of just tiring the horse out before she rides. It would be nice for my friend to be able to just jump on and not worry about her horse bucking because she is a really nice little rider.
Thanks for any help =]
