because they are scared and need to figure it out. sometime they only buck once as a "what the hell is that!" then they go around once or twice and think "oh, im alive and it has not tried to eat me". it falls under the dont make it a big deal thing. by getting after a horse who has just been saddled for the first time and he is freaking out he may not connect the correction with bucking, but might associate the saddle with bad things. now that the horse has established the saddle won't kill it you can correct the bucking. he knows the saddle is not bad and its a little easier as he is not completely freaked out over what's happening. he has been through it before and knows he will be ok. so when you correct him NOW he is more likly to stop bucking and figure out the correction is for bucking, not because this weird thing is strapped to his back.

Just my take on it though. kinda like the first time haltering a horse. if they spook you dont get on them for their spooking/acting silly (unless it was in a dangerous way). you go slow and ignore the first cuple of hiccups as the horse not not sure whats going on. Again i may be wrong but that's how it makes sense to me.

Here on the ranch the babies are started young. They are played with using small ropes around their head until a little loose rope halter is not hardly noticed.

Same with the saddle. They are rubbed around on their back with an old canvas saddlebag affair. Then someday it's left on them where it falls of eventually. Repeat on occasionally various days with maybe a little weight added until when they eventually have an actual saddle placed on them, they never buck at all. They trust their human.

Take lots and lots of time. It has to be a labor of love. And I think they know the difference.

I just don't think horses are meant to be trained in an arena in front of an audience.

The time constraint of a clinic does not let you do it the right way.

It is as simple as that. There is absolutely nothing gained by letting a horse buck. Everything it accomplishes can be better accomplished without it and it does NOT come back to bite you when a horse has been turned out and is really fresh.

I get the constraints of a clinic, but he also lets them do it during a normal breaking, which is just ridiculous.
