    As far as your size in regards to him, I disagree with the above poster who said you are an improper fit to him. I have seen plenty of 14hh QHs carrying 6ft tall 250lb men around all day on cattle ranches. Your boy obviously has decent bone, and once filled out will have more than adequate weight and muscle to withstand your weight. You look fine on him.
    Thanks a lot!! My boy is 15.2 and I am no where near even 200 pounds! Horses are stronger than what people give them credit for.

    I can't believe someone even said that to about your size in regards to him, lol! It's all good, you are definitely not too big for your horse, lol! Anyhow, I was going to mention that it sounded like a mouth issue, but it looks like all is going well! Enjoy your horse!

    Not saying this is True for your case...but I had a SIMILAR experience 4 mos. Ago... The Vet told me my horse had either been drugged or had been sick...After sending her out with the trainers and wild mustang breakers, I found out this horse was NOT broke.. she didn't understand any cues..... I was bucked off and ended up with a kinked bowel before I found out what was wrong....

    I have same problems with my pony... He was perfect (I rode him about 2 years before I bought him) and he started to buck me off... Later my mother heard that my pony was very quickly put under saddle by "a good rider"... But they had found how to do well with him buy making sure that he will have no energy to buck his riders off... When I bought him he changes a lot... now he is beautiful, but sometimes he buck me off without any reason (no pain, no fear), and he trust me so I don't know...
    I will try Pat Parelli games now maybe this can work.
    But I think your horse is in a new situation, new rider, new home, he is testing you, be sure to stay the "leader".
    Good luck, I wish you the best ;)

    I just wanted to add... I bought my my horse for 200. He was a horse that nobody wanted... he scared people. But I took the chance, and guess what? He has been awesome! I commend you for not giving up on him when so many people would have, and probably did. Keep up the good work and care!

    I think you are right it will take time but at the end, I believe that's something great.

    It isn't about "giving up" - it is about recognizing one's own abilities and limitations. No one has said that this horse is one NO ONE can help, only that the horse is not a good match for the rider with her current skill set.

    With good teacher maybe he can change. I think that because I am in this kind of situation and I can't give up... So I try and try again to find something that works.

    Just to comment on everybodys comments. My horse is fine now. He knows he can't get away with his bad behavior and he's fine. He throws little fits but after I raise my voice and let him know that he can't get by with his attitude he does great. He's staying with me and he's doing better and better. I can handle him fine I've rode horses with way worse behavior.
