    Well I was at a demonstration show, and there was a horse bucking. They didnt really explain how to solve it, but I did notice the girl on him was consistent, firm and turned him or rode him as she was supposed to do.

    If the horse has never done this before, I highly doubt its due to "attitude" and is more than likely a combo of saddle fit and pain issues. Riding him through it won't help and will likely make the situation worse.

    Update!
    So, Nicholas's back completely gave out a couple of weeks ago, I / we were totally right about where the issue was coming from. (He has made a full recovery, nobody panic! )
    I finally convinced the owners to get a chiro out to adjust him, and they are going to start looking for a saddle that fits him better. Yay! In the mean time I am borrowing a therapeutic memory foam pad from a friend whose horse is prone to being backsore, which Nicholas really seems to like.
    Thanks for all the help, everyone!

    Awesome news that the chiro is helping and that he's getting the help and care he needs. If the chiro hasn't been out yet - just keep it to limited riding (or none at all if he's still sore at all) so that it doesn't get worse again. Good luck and sounds like you're on the right track!

    Try going over single jumps and bringing him back to you straight away. Halt as soon as possible but make sure your not hitting him in the mouth either. If he seems excited before you ride him, try lunging him before you get in the saddle.
