The horse I posted about me thinking threatening to buck finally did it...my sister and I were riding around in the pasture so the other horse was loose, just following us around. But she fell behind so she cantered past to catch up and the horse I was riding tried to follow her into a canter, so naturally I pulled her back, and that made her decide to buck! I flipped off the side of her, got back up and walked up to her and got back on. I rode around for a while after that to prove to her that she isn't getting out of work by doing that. She was trying to go to the corner where we had a bit of food leftover from their morning feeding. I was riding with a rope to slap her across the butt everytime she stopped and wouldn't get going again. (she's the stubborn one) and that worked really well. By the end of our ride, I would click, she would go about half of the time, then if she didn't I would start swinging the rope from side to side without actually hitting her and she would get going. She was being the perfect little angel horse right up until the buck. Now I am kind of wary about riding in the pasture again but the only other place I can ride right now is a gravel road, which will definitely hurt a lot worse than landing in a snow bank in the pasture. If the snow hadn't been there when I fell off, I would be hurt as I fell on my head. I don't know what to do to prevent her from doing that again. I can't lunge her in the snow, can I? There is not much ground work I can do with her since the only place I could do it is covered in snow and has two other horses in it so that would have to wait until Summer or Spring. I feel really nervous because it all happened so fast, fine one second and I was on the ground the next, it wasn't like she was sending me warning signals before, she just kind of decided she wanted to be done and acted on it. I have no idea what to do!!
