If it is pain, how come he doesnt do it evey single last time? Alright, here is a video. NOTE, the color clips are my FIRST times jumping with a saddle on. FIRST TIMES EVER. So don't look at those, skip those and look at the black and white clips as they are the most recent. Also, this video is rather old, and I know my landing is off, but I have worked through that though.

Some horses will object to pain the first few times and then will just continue working in pain as they can't get rid of it.

the horse looks like she's landing unbalanced, which can sometimes cause them to buck. Also, you are jumping ahead, which causes you to hit the horses back with your butt on landing. She could be bucking because of that too. I would make sure your saddle fits and work on your 2pt position and not jumping ahead.

Ah, alright. I didnt think of it like that.

Yup, he does have a problem landing on some higher jumps, so we have been schooling on lower jumps for a long while now. Ight, so how do you see if your jumping ahead? As I look to look over the videos of my jumping to see everything I am doing wrong and would like to be able to notice it. Saddle fits, had it checked.

My horse does this randomly. I've had the bowen out and tried different saddles, he just does it from excitement. I've tried spinning him in a circle, backing up, halting on landing, basically anything I could think of to make sure he knows it's not cool.
The best thing that I've tried and the only thing that really worked was to push him through it and ride him forward. Lots of leg, circle round and do it again. Lather rinse repeat. When he finally did it without bucking, lots of praise and he gets a break. I just made sure I rode him forward hard.
Now when I jump him, no buck.

If you have ruled out back pain/cold back issues, other physical pain and saddle fit you might want to try going back to the very basis..poles on the ground. Work at the trot first then the canter. Place your poles just as you would in a grid and ride through it in both regular posting trot/ canter seat and in your two-point. Once he is going through and is totally bored with that, set up a jump at the end of the poles and then work up to your grid (over a couple of weeks..not the same day :) ).

You can also go back to some basics to further clinch your two-point...do a lot of it in your warm-up concentrating on your position..especially at the trot. It could be, and I admit I didn't watch the vid as I can't on this system, you are not as strong at the beginning and hitting his back and then getting better as you go through the grid multiple times.

He may just need a retune.

Hi he may have a problem with his stifle or joints? My horse did this so I got the vet out as he only did it while jumping and on a certain corner. His stifle would click in when he jumped and it was slowely chipping his bone. He got in tremedouse pain each time he jumped so maybe get a vet to check him?

When we first started learning to jump, my horse also started bucking occasionally after landing. We attributed it to pain and soreness from the new muscles he was working. Had the chiro out regularly and took it really slow. He has come a long way, but just 2 weeks ago started bucking and rushing after jumps, so had the chiro out again. She found he was sore again in his jumping muscles. Immmediately after treatment, he is back to my reasonable guy! Just remember that jumping requires muscles and joints to do things they aren't used to. Make sure to give him rest time and don't over jump him. (Not saying you are, but some people I know jump their horse 4-5 days a week, not fair!)

I have the same problem you have with jumping ahead. I just have to remind myself to ride more defensively, and that seems to help. Freeze frame your video a few strides out, and you can see that you are already coming forward in anticipation of the jump. Good luck with everything

Well, I rode on... Thursday I believe, and took down the jumps, and instead set up just a small little grid/bounce thing, before going on the grid though, I did some warm up with cantering around collected, some trotting around, then we hit the grid, and he did PERFECT. Not one single buck. I think if I don't give him enough warm up time, he bucks. Thank you everyone for thee advice, when I get enough $$ again, a vet will be out!

I don't know how to help but I can defiantly sympathise! Bucking of the jumps is SO annoying it's only happened to me once but I did NOT like it I cam right off and Lucy seemed to be pretty smug about it....not so much when I got back on she looked at me like "what?!? I thiught I got rid of you!"
