Well... unfortunately it looks like Silver may have to go back (if they'll take him) He bucked me off when I got on him on Saturday and again today, we put one of the girls at the barn on him saturday and he bucked with her (though she's actually in shape and stayed on) On saturday I chalked it up to him being in a new place, nervous, not liking the mounting block etc. but today it was obvious that something hurts him. When I got on he bucked and then leaped into the air (my trainer was holding him) I flew off almost underneath him and he almost came down on top of my trainer. She agrees that it was not just a "I'm scared/nervous/feeling silly" buck/leap, but more of a "OWWWW get the heck off of me that hurts" When my trainer took the saddle of and ran her hand over his withers he tried to kick her

My trainer thinks that he might have been buted or something when we tried him and such and that's why they wouldn't let him go out on trial. Who knows... She's going to call the guy I bought him from and "have some words" with him, I don't know what is going to happen from here... but I really really hate people right now... unfortunately getting skrewed over when buying a horse is entirely too common...

And the most ironic part... I rode Amber and she was fabulous! Ugh!!

Most unfortunate. If it's any consolation, you're not the first person that has experienced this and you won't be the last. Keep up posted.

Let us know what happens......I hope, for your sake they take the horse back, but I wouldn't count on it. Only other possibility would be a Chiro.....and a good one at that. Are you sure your saddle fits?

Did you get blood pulled? I'm sorry some people feel they need to hide things to sell a horse.

Nice to hear you had a good ride on Amber :)

Ok we have a game plan... unfortunately they won't take him back, the guy was extremely rude to my trainer when she called him, he obviously didn't give 2 shakes about the poor horse. We are going to have a full vet work up done on him, xrays, everything, it means money but I can't in good conscience keep him or sell him without knowing exactly whats going on. Money isn't as big of an issue as making sure the horse is ok and making sure he doesn't end up hurting someone if there is something seriously wrong with him. Poor guy, none of this is his fault...

Go you for being a responsible horse owner!

You have my full support. I hope you can figure out what's going on with this horse!

Awww glad your ok! When I first brought home Dexter...I bought him knowing he had a bucking problem (owner would let him sit in field for MONTHS...bring him in and try to work him...he bucked...got to go back out in field for months...smart guy...lol I have an amazing trainer though so we weren't worried) Well I had same thing happen to me...first day of going out to ride him I went to get on and off he went and I was on the ground hahaha...Well got back on and had a good ride after that! Called my trainer afterwards, and she started to work with him, and with him and me and hes been doing great since! There was just one episode, back in November..2 months after the first time...well everything seemed great, he'd been doing great...get on, before my foots even in the stirrup he reared up a little then went into a big crow hop and I was down...trainer got on...then I got back on and he was an angel! He's been doing really well since though :) He's silly and I'm lucky I didn't get hurt
