    I wasn't sure if she meant she was tightening it in the saddle or if after tightening it and remounting he spooked.

    One thing that has built my confidence up is the one rein stop.If you will flex him on the ground from both sides and then when in saddle,it will make a big difference when you ride especially when he takes off because he is spooked or starts bucking ect pull his head around with the one rein stop and I think it will help you with your confidence..

    NO I AGREE, and I've got the bruises to show. The girl that broke him been doing this on hacks and so forth from the off and I've done it twice since I've been riding but there you go he freaked out at my foot anyway!!! I was probably just getting too used to him and too relaxed!
    Thanks everybody!! Hopefully he wont have caught on to how easily I came off!! Ill check in tommorow!!

    until I decided to tighten up the girth and he turned to sniff my foot (he always does this) but instead of calming back down like usual he spooked and took off in a leaping bucking situation. This was not an aggressive buck just spooked one however having my leg up over saddle at the time he managed to get me off easily

    Unless she does some weird aerobics on her horse, definitely mounted

    Whenever I start a young horse I always make sure they can easily be flexed in either direction and that I can move the hind quarters away while sitting in the saddle. Make sure he is confident in the ring before ever hacking out! Confidence does not happen in 12 days. He needs more time, at least a few weeks I'd think. Be careful and don't let him go with his head down, keep it up right now and remember if he takes to bucking, be sure you can pull his head toward your knee to stop him. You'll need to do this if he bolts too. Good luck!

    First, be aware when you are riding a green horse. Be careful with new things.

    Teach the one rein stop

    Always get back on and continue the lesson calmly. If the bucking is fear based(like this case) smacking will acomplish the opposite of what you want, and growling at them like a predator likely wont help either.

    Lots of green horses have an episode or two like this. I had a filly from weanling on. Super quiet, went to start her as a three year old, ride 15, dog jumped out of the bushes, huge bucking fit. Got back on calmly and continued the session. Never happened again.

    My sister rode him tonight as im still struggling to walk properly get in and out of car etc after awkward fall last night :( Plus nerves keep creeping back in and I know that wouldnt help him one bit.
    Anyway he was wired tonight like super nervous and he did do one leap in a corner but again bit like a spook but there was nothing there to scare him. She just walked him around the outdoor arena for about 20 mins then called it a night. Shooting school also firing shots every couple of seconds and he was flinching with those. ( something he's not used to as we just moved him to this livery yard to have use of the facilities)
    He's never been nervous before this feels like a huge step back?!!!

    He could have gotten some skin pinched when you tightened up.

    Many horses get spooked the first time someone falls off of them & become a bit leary. He'll get over it.

    With a green horse, try and adjust your thinking to measure progress in months and years instead of days and weeks. Training a horse can be the same kind of emotional roller coaster felt by folks trying to lose weight and feel like all hope is lost when they've gained a couple pounds one week. Consistency, patience, and time.
