It happened... again....

by Shinney

Hey, some of you know I have an 8 year old paso fino gelding named Trouble. Well, he bucked me off again this time the belly strap was fine, and again no bridle. I tried to canter him and he started bucking.... Please let me know how to stop this and what I can to to prevent us from getting injured.

My horse
by: Macy

My horse did the same thing. Turned out he had sore hips and ribs (he is a old horse)! So maybe have your vet out.

Do you?
by: Anonymous

I have a question for Alyssa the horse gentler... Do you read the Winnie The Horse Gentler books?

I totally agree
by: Anonymous

I again totally agree with Alyssa the horse gentler! Riding helmets were maid for a reason and so were bridles. And blowing into the nostrils of a horse is an old Indian trick to show a horse you mean him/her no harm.

bridle
by: Alyssa the horse gentler

First of no bridle? To fix that try riding with a
bridle!! And for safety try a riding helmet!
Also get closer to your horse let him/her let know your his/her friend try this blow in his/her nose if he/her blows back he knows you're friends! Also spend every day watch how he/her behaves study it and learn what it means!

hmmmmmm
by: kylie

all these horse crazy girls are right but you should contact the owner and find out if he doesn't like too canter or what. you can also ask a horse trainer to see what's wrong if its not something the vet can fix.... and if the trainer doesn't work... I hate to say this but you might want to sell... BUT GIVE IT TO A LOCAL RESCUE OR A GOOD HOME NOT THE AUCTION!!!! HORSES NORMALLY DON'T MAKE IT OUT ALIVE THERE!!!!!!!

Good luck...
by: Christina

I would lunge him and see if you are having any trouble without anybody riding him, then if he is still bucking then i would contact your local vet because he might have some pain in his back, legs, etc... And if he isn't bucking while you are lunging him then it might be the saddle. I'm not expert just trying to help a fellow horsecrazy girl:) Good Luck!

Hi Shinney
by: Unicorn

Does Trouble do this with a bridle?
Have you tried lunging him without a bridle? He might not understand what you're saying with your hands without a bit.
I hope you get to the bottom of this - be careful!
