  1. Horse Tack and Equipment
    What is the best type of western saddle for a horse that broncs? When my horse gets excited when I don’t let him bolt he starts broncing not just bucking, full on BRONCING. Lets just say its hard to hold on and stay seated with my english saddle. So i’m planning to get a western saddle but I’m...

    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...

    Hi there! So, long story and kinda at a dead end. I have a 11 year old thoroughbred, never raced, who sat in the field for basically his whole life until two years ago. I bought him, and started him. He's a chestnut pinto with a lot of attitude, but we've gotten past most of the attitude...

    Well, my poor pony has sacroiliac problems and despite numerous acupuncture sessions he's still bucking and throwing his head to the sky... We've been doing a lot of flat work and it is helping with muscle build up but I can't stop him from bucking! He does have sensitive side also. Anyone got...

    Hi, I've only been riding since last fall. When I started out riding everything seemed to come quickly and naturally. Then at the end of June I was working on the canter, and my instructor let me cantor off the lunge line for the first time around the rink. Everything was fine the first few...

    My 13.2 Welsh x Cob mare sometimes (not always) doesn't go into canter so I use the whip on her hard enough so she actually feels something, but not so hard i am whipping the cr*p out of her! This makes her do pretty big bucks, head down, back end up! I do have experience with bucking horses so...
  9. 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...

    Just thought that I'd share my neck injury scare now that Im recovered! Basically, after a 6 year marathon of having my butt never hitting the ground after being on the back of a horse, I got bucked off by my horse Batman, and it was mostly my fault! Let me write you a story! After Batman...

    When we got Zlatograd (the horse) 1.5 years ago, he was a "problem horse". We bought Z from a riding school, which was selling him because of a bucking/rearing problem (test riding video: ). After a couple of months he stopped those rodeos, but he's still a little unpredictable sometimes. We...
  12. Horse Training
    Was excersizing one of my fillies when she tripped on something. She trips fairly often... she's a very clumsy horse. But anyways, it was a pretty bad trip, she ended up on one knee. When she popped back up, she went into a little bucking session. Usually she just recovers herself and gets back...
