I hoped the title would help get some views I purchased a draft x in august and have been working with her since. Shes great, most of the time. When shes bad, shes REALLY bad. Take today for instance, she took off in a full speed gallop, then stoped and BUCKED like there was no tomorrow. I stayed on for awhile, but finally ended up flying over her neck and landing head first on the ground...:-|...I thought her bucking/bolting was under control until today, shes done this plenty of times but i havent actually been in pain until now. Its way out of hand, theres no pattern, its just random. Sometimes its while we're at a steady walk, or a trot, or when i ask her to canter. Also, she sometimes shakes her head, im wondering if it could be her bit (a regular eggbut snaffle) maybe she has a weird mouth and a single jointed bit is unomfortable? There arent any pressure points with her saddle, i dont think thats the problem, because she bucks me off when i ride bareback. Ive never had problems with previous horses, so I dont think its me. Im not scared of her, im just discouraged and frusterated. I always get right back on, to show her its not an easy way out of work, I did today too. Now I have a 1700 lb. beast who hates me and Im totally out of ideas...help? maybe I can try a different bit?
