    Maybe I should just give you another stupid answer.

    Im not the one paying. I have tried to convince my cousins mom to get a trainer. But if you hadnt noticed.. its ... NOT workin.

    ...ok...i will try to explain. I mean that no one can just stay in their seat when a horse takes off, or bucks or rears.
    But if you know horses, you can feel the action before it happens, so you can calm your horse, and stay calm yourself.

    Okay from what you just said for your tips of staying on when the horse misbehaves id say you definitely need a trainer and so does your cousin.

A good trainer would be able to give you some tips and train you how to handle your horse better... Just saying. You seem to have an answer for everything... A really stupid answer (I know your only young but you need to understand) just try a trainer out... Just TRY! It won't hurt to give it a go for a few weeks and see if you improve. If you do, keep the trainer. If not (very unlikely) sack the trainer. X

    If your considering training another child to ride then you should know the answer for yourself.
    Every horse is different. First off you need to identify why your horse is bucking. Is it because they're excited, scared, nervous, resistant of work???
    Again, all horses are different in
    How to stop the behaviour. In racing if a horse bucked we just ignored it and made them gallop faster. When my 5 year old trakehner misbehaves and bucks I spin him so his face is near my knee and he gets very sick of it. He doesn't buck anymore and this method really worked well for him. I had a 22 year old pony who was a pain in the arse to ride. With her I just had to distract her and keep sessions fun because it's when things got repetitive and boring when set would buck... All horses are different like I said.
    As for staying on just to 'keep calm' is rubbish advice. From what you said it makes me wonder whether your telling lies about being able to ride yourself. As you haven't mentioned balance or position in the saddle & stirrups once and that's the most important thing.

    Sorry I hurt your feelings I just think you should be more open to criticism. Even the best riders use trainers at least once a week you know.... Even Olympians!!

    Friend, it's really not a matter of "getting" younger people. It's a matter of safety for your cousin. (Bear in mind that less than ten years separate us in age xD) It would be different if your cousin knew something about horses, and you were just giving her some suggestions about something specific, like posting or picking up the correct lead.

    But, based on what you've been saying, it just kind of sounds like the blind leading the blind. Plus, you've given some contradictory statements here about your knowledge, and about what you'd do in a given situation, which makes your experience level difficult to gauge, or hard to believe.

    I'm not trying to sound harsh, and it is commendable that you want to help your cousin. Everyone here just wants what's best for everyone in the situation.
