Well you can always have them watch Buck and see if they are willing to change their 'tudes about the horse.

Everything Saddlebag said. That post was full of great advice and you explained it so much better than I could have, Saddlebag!

Thanks, that was Brock before I learned the true value of groundwork! Still going to use it as his competition name, though - might scare off the opposition

Nice. I call mine "Bareback Jack" for much the same reasons.

UPDATE:

Well, I feel much better now about getting off the horse after the bucking...

It seems that PAIN was the issue. I worked with her on the ground today (no intention of riding - just wanted to see if the hoof trimming made any difference) and she picked all four feet up for me with no problem, was very cooperative and willing, and showed a marked reduction in stiffness.

I am much more confident about sticking with this horse.

Thanks everyone for your advice!
