buck, pigroot
 
i have pretty much grown up with horses and i always thought a 'pigroot' (yeh lovely word :roll: ) was when only the hind feet came of the ground http://youtube.com/watch?v=r_R8gVLuvvM

and a buck is when all four feet leave the ground and the back arches http://youtube.com/watch?v=DnGwMS3RRMA

however on different horsie internet sites people (especially from other countries) seem to call a buck and a pigroot the same thing.
Do you call these two the same?

I call a pigroot a halfarsed attempt at a buck. And a buck is when they put some effort into it. :wink:

Agreed. A pigroot is more like a kickup of the back feet and a buck is when they horse is really meaning it.
