Sitting a buck
I need help with how to sit a buck, the last time one of my horses bucked, I couldnt sit it and got thrown... Does anyone have any tips for me? I've tried the obvious, like keeping her head up so she CANT buck, but she's very hard in the mouth, so I cant manage to keep it up... please help
Um.. haha make the horse buck more so you can get more practice? lol!
Just hang onto the saddle and lean back- if you go forward you're going to eat dirt. Grip with your lower legs.
If your horse keeps bucking though, you don't want to know just hwo to sit it, you want to know how to put an end to it because bucking is NOT on, get him/her checked out by a chrio before you ride again, if she hasn't bucked much before she might be out somewhere.
As to putting and end to it, well, yep keeping her head up is good, but if you can't do it, then rip her head around with one rein and spin her off your inside leg, then ask her nicely to go out again without going stupid on you.
yeah, agree with the above, lean back not forward, and if its more than one spin :D
Also sit deeeeeeeeep in the saddle. :)
I agree with the others and wanted to add: make sure you have your heels down before the buck. It's alright if they come up during the buck but if you don't have them down beforehand, you will come off.
Good luck! Bucking is no fun...but it's really good for your seat! haha
Anticipate what's going to happen, grab mane, sit deep, sit back, and DON'T tense up. Just roll with it.
i dont really have to much helpful ness because ive always been able to sit bucks, but id say sit deep and back.
random question.. but
how does your horse buck?
I agree with the suggestions. Also once you feel comfortable sitting the bucks and as long as it is not continuous bucking my advice is to kick on! If you stop what you are doing every time your horse bucks then they may start using it as a way to evade work. So don't allow them to stop moving forward and keep them going.
