  1. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    I don't know if anyone can advise. i'll give a quick back story. My pony is 17 years old I've had her for over 10 years now and just did natural horsemanship, schooling, hacking, the normal things a 14 year old would do. Sadly recently (now I am older) I couldn't afford her anymore so had to put...
  2. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    I bought a new, 9 year old roping gelding back about 3 months ago and at the time he was kind of thin but everything else about him was perfect. Dead broke, new his job and did it well, and was fast. Fast-forward to April, I was pen roping a calf and just as we were coming around the corner...

    Young strong gelding. He is used to people, could be more respectful of space but not bad. Been handled a fair amount but no real training. Then saddled and ridden a couple times with no previous groundwork. More whoa than go. He was resisting going forward when he got upset and bucked pretty...
  4. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    I have an 8-year old thoroughbred who was presented as a good lesson horse. When he arrived (bought in Canada) in nov 2015 he was underfed, needed deworming, had no muscles at all. We have fixed/are fixing all that. He had an injury but we took care of that too. I don't need a lecture on how I...

    My thoroughbred, Trigger, bucks whenever he's excited. He's been like this before I got him, and I do not know how to fix it. He is such a sweet, gentle horse. He's very comfortable to ride and is normally a very slow and relaxed while riding. But when things start to get exciting, he'll blow...
  6. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    All of my trainers have told me when horses buck, sit deep in the saddle, stay loose and lean back, heels down... But I want to find the best technique for it. I've heard some people say to stay on big bucks you should lift yourself slighty out of the saddle (so the horse can't spring load you...
  7. Horse Training
    So since moving to my new area I've become known for taking in horses no one really wants. Due to loss of land, moving, horses being unrideable, accidental foals. You name it I have it. About a month ago I agreed to take a 2yo chestnut gelding from a friend, this horse was destined for the...
  8. Horse Health
    I have a horse that whenever you put it in a stable it automatically starts kicking and bucking, often hitting the walls which makes it kick/ buck more? Also squealing? She is mostly worse when you are bringing food to her but she is fine tied on the yard or in the pen/field. She is part arab...
  9. Horse Talk
    I am working with a mare at my riding school she is 14.3hh and about 5-6 years old. She is extremely stubborn and you can kick her all you want she doesn't move so i have been using a crop on her which gets her moving but then she starts pig rooting and sometimes bucks. She has no idea what leg...
  10. Horse Training
    So my horse, Reggie (in my photos), has a problem with bucking in the lope. The weird thing is, he only bucks in an arena. He rides wonderfully out on roads and trails and even bareback! But, the second he steps foot into our arena, he wants to go-go-go and throw in a little buck when he does...
  11. Horse Training
    Ok, so long story short I agreed to part boarding a 6 year old canadian sport horse (tb/percheron) last may and he was great! never had a problem with him even took him on hacks bareback. however as it got colder and I got busy with school I told the owner (who doesn't ride so I was the only one...
  12. Horse Training
    I have a teenaged MFT gelding that I've had for almost a year.... he gets ridden a couple times a week and I've never had a problem with him bucking. Then today, I saddle him up, get on, and ask him to walk forward and he throws 2 baby bucks ( nothing scary, or make you fall off ). So I take him...
  13. Horse Training
    My horse is a QH Mare and she is in a pasture with a few other horses, One of them is another Mare. When ever my horse and the other mare are riding together, my horse does everything to get to that horse. She will throw her head and start running twords the horse. I have tried working her by...
  14. Horse Training
    My horse is a 12yo QH who I've owned for the last two years. I had a family emergency earlier this year, so I asked someone to look after him and his pasture buddy. I resumed riding and caring for him three weeks ago, though I can only ride bareback, due to a child ruining my saddle. :(...
  15. Horse Training
    I'm trying to get this pony to stop bucking as much but the person who has been riding him has taught him when she hits him with her crop he bucks so what could I do?! He's always bucked and he's 12 year old so I know he won't come out of it so how could i punish him for bucking as he'll only...
  16. Horse Training
    So I have been leasing a horse for almost 1 and 1/2 years and have been doing natural horsemanship with her for 1. She backs up with wiggling my finger and yeilds her hinds just by me looking at them. She has a fairly slow walk and trot and I have been working on slowing down her lope and her...
  17. Horse Training
    I think my pony bucked today. I've felt a horse hump up before, but I've never had one actually buck. It felt like I sank really far into and forward in the saddle and her butt came up higher than her shoulders. It was kind of a floaty feeling. Please don't think I'm lame! I disciplined her...
  18. Horse Training
    I have a horse who has a very stubborn personality in general. And it's pretty bad when you ride her too. She is really hard to get into the canter and she can't get her leads right. I can't use a crop very well because she crohops everytime I use it. Any suggestions on what to do?
  19. Horse Training
    I have been lunging my new quarter horse mare. She is an ex-polo horse and an ex-barrel racer. She is very sensitive, but does fine lunging at the walk and trot. However, no matter how lightly/ softly I ask for the canter on the lunge, she bolts/ rears/ bucks/ backs and won't canter. Any...

    My mare refuses to go past a trot,kicking does nothing expect make her buck and turn around and bite my legs. Its even difficult to get her into a trot. I have tried to use a crop but once she gets going she will randomly stop and i will go flying. Also she refuses to go where I tell her if I...
