TB that bucks after jump
I've XP'd in Eventing (since we do combined training) and Training forums, but thought I'd post here for good measure. Any input is good input IMO :)
I'll make it short and sweet. I have an OTTB that I've had for 9 years. When he knocks a rail, he gets PISSED and bucks. He's a pro bucker. Usually I can stay in the saddle (more out of self preservation than skill...) but today he got me in the dirt. He only does this at home, not st shows or schooling elsewhere. But since we school 95% at home, it's a problem.
I feel like I should add that his bucks are intense-near 90 degree angle bucks. Today, my trainer told me nobody could have ridden through it. A few years ago (the only other time he's gotten me off), a 2 time Olympian was shocked when I got back in the saddle after he bucked so hard I came off.
So how do you deal with a horse with anger management issues?
