"Rides on the Buckle"
I have seen this description in a lot of horse ads lately, usually in conjunction with trail riding. Can someone explain to me what it means?

Huh, I have never heard that before. I am looking forward to an answer too. :D

I believe it means Rides on the bit, as in Western thought? I may be completly wrong though.

I've never heard the term. I could understand a person riding on the buckle, meaning riding forward off balance and off the pockets.

It's an English term. English reins have a buckle in the center. Riding on the buckle means that you are riding with such loose reins that you are actually holding the buckle. It indicates that your horse is so lay back that you don't need contact with his mouth at all times. (Pays to have once been an English rider :wink:)

Thanks, iridehorses that makes sense now. I am an english rider and had never heard the term before, but kept reading it in the ads for these eventing horses I am looking at.

After a long hack or a real workout in the ring, we used to "ride the buckle" home to cool out our horses.
