Hello everyone well my fiance and I went riding today with all my 4 nephews. Well Cloud is still real spooky he is only 3 years old though. And we have a little problem he walks and trots fine but when he goes to canter or gallop he starts to buck.
Let me explain. Cloud and I were following my fiance while he was leading one of my nephews and he was running while she was trotting so, cloud started trotting fine then all of a sudden it seems like he gets excited so he like lifts his front feet a little and has a power surge lol to get up and run! But when I did that he lifted his back then front then back again about the 4th time he bucked I flew forward and landed on my back! HARD.
Im not sure if he knows how to run under saddle. I don't think he was ever really taught that before.. he's usually one of the most loving calm attitude horse that's there.
Problem number 2 is lunging.. as soon as my fiance picks up the whip he backs up and starts to lift his front end like he is scared. How can we stop that?
He also is kinda lazy lol and when he sees food grass trees or anything he will stop and eat ( he's not starving he gets fed 3 times a day ) and its a pain to get him away and walk on.. any idea how to fix it?
