Both times this horse bucked/spooked he was ridden outdoors with by a novice rider.One I think the horse needs a more confident rider & 2nd the horse needs more outdoor trail miles.I don't think it is so much a bucking problem as much a confidence one on part of the rider & horse.
Nope, not at ten. I do agree green rider could have just fallen off a small buck but who knows. Plus it'd always be at the back of my mind. I wouldn't even look.
If he was sent to multiple trainers (yes unknown) he should be over this. If you want to stick your neck out and REALLY start him from the bottom up, maybe. But if you can't fix it you are stuck with it. There will be another project horse listed in a few weeks possibly even better looking that may just need miles but one that has never offered to buck or whatever.
I got mine who just needed miles and taken down a notch, why? Because he'd never bucked, kicked, reared, or bitten. And hasn't so far. Worth working with, for $350 delivered.

Thanks Sky. I was staring at that photo trying to figure out what was wrong with it, other than the fact that his head is held down but there is no rider, lunge line, or anything. There does seem to be a rather bizarre photoshopping job done on the saddle. Weird!
