Hello everyone, I am new to the forum and actually stumbled upon it on accident. I have been riding off and on for about 5 years but really got into this past year. My boyfriend has this horse (Dallas) that he was going to sell but I immediately fell in love with her and convinced him to keep her. He told me she had some issues that needed attention but was overall a decent horse. The first day I rode her I had her doing things he had never seen her do before. I rode her about 3 times about an hour each before I cantered her the first time. The first time she cantered it was her doing. We were out in the pasture and about 5 or 6 other horses came running up and she decided to run with them. She took off with me. I finally got her to stop. But that was it. No big deal. So I thought if she didn't throw a fit then, then I ought to be able to canter her and not have a problem. As soon as I broke out into a lope she threw a buck. Just one. But enough to scare me. It was the first time I've ever been bucked with. (BTW I still have yet to hit the ground off a horse) So I need some advice on fixing this problem with her and regaining my confidence.
