    Thank you for all your tips and suggestions everyone!
    I will try all of these!

    She's a great horse, just too smart for her own good! Haha
    I'm just going to have to lunge her and tire her out before I get on.
    Her buck isn't horrible, I'm just worried about falling (I got thrown into a fence a while back and cracked a rib) don't want anything to get worse!

    She did much much better when I rode her today!
    No buck at all! I just walked her in a round pen, changed directions, and worked around some cones and she did great! And I only lunged her for about 10 minutes before the ride!
    Just needed some good conditioning!

    Whatever you do, don't get lulled into a false sense of security. Just because she didn't buck last ride doesn't mean that she's through. If you start thinking that she's done and relax, that's when she'll get you and hurt you.

    You might consider putting a nightlatch on your saddle, that will give you a better grip and help you stay on during a horse's shenanigans.
