    Here's my two cents..... I agree with JDI that the "training fork" is too short.... he could have been lazy and try to throw his front end up when moving into the canter (a lot of horses that haven't been ridden for awhile will do this) and then he hit the training fork and didn't like how it felt with that western curb and started bucking.......

    Also you said a little girl rode him last..... he might have been fine then, but got sore after she rode, and then your friend might be bigger so he showed the signs more

    Just what I think it could be

    Well Murphy was ridden today by a woman and he was perfect...she did walk/trot/canter...she didn't do jumping because she had to go home, but Murphy behaved wonderfully. An occasional tossing of the head when she first started, but afer that he was fine. He even did a nice slow collected canter, which was rare for Murphy (...not the collected part...but the slow part).
    I talked to the barn owner about it, and the barn owner (who is also our trainer) said that more than likely it was something my friend did when she asked...my BO also said that my friend doesn't have the greatetst of riding/body posture while riding, and that that could have made him finally get upset about that and just buck her off.

    I think this horse may just have an attitude problem. Some horses take advantage of riders who are not that confident. When he bucked your friend off did she get back on and ride him? If not then he may have learned that if he gets rid of his rider, then he doesn't have to work as hard. These type of horses can be tough but ask someone who is very experienced to 'ride him out'.
