How to Stop a Horse from Bucking. Some horses dislike having riders and some dislike the tack or their surroundings. And then some just need to get out a bit of.
Table of contents

Breaking is about teaching the horse what not to do. If a horse bucks to relieve a pressure he feels and he succeeds in tossing his rider, the horse gets rewarded for bucking because the pressure goes away.

However, we recognize that it takes a really athletic horse to buck and we want to harness that athletic activity drive and turn it into something useful. When we train horses rather than breaking them, we want teach them what to do rather than what not to do. Instead of thinking about how to discourage it, we want to develop control over it so we can ask for that kind of dynamic activity whenever we want it.

When a horse goes to buck, he tries to put his head down so he can shift his weight onto his front end. If he succeeds in doing that, then he can focus on releasing a big burst of energy drive out through his hind end.

So before he actually gets a buck off, the horse gives us three warning signals, or three chances, to capture the energy he wants to put into bucking and redirect it somewhere else. Heeding teaches you to keep your attention on your horse at all times so he will keep his attention on you. So as soon as you feel the horse starting to duck his head and shift his weight onto his forehand, you squeeze the horse with your legs to ask him to keep moving forward in the same rhythm as before.

If you missed his first signal and you start to feel his forward energy slowing down and moving backward, you squeeze with your legs and ask him to keep moving forward in the same rhythm. The solution is still the same. Squeeze the horse forward with both legs in the same squeeze and release rhythm you were riding before the two of you got distracted. You continue to rhythmically drive with your corridor of aids, relax and allow the stride, then drive, relax, drive, relax, etc.

When a horse starts to buck, a lot of people try to stop the movement of his head. Allow forward motion with your hands and keep your back and seat relaxed. When he is ridden outside, the environment is much larger than indoors.

Bucking: Why Does a Horse Do It and How to Stop It?

Naturally, this freedom raises the emotions of the horse. Also, the herd instinct and playful nature when around other horses comes into play. I'd also consider that this horse may not be fully broke. It takes 21 days to form a new habit and 90 days to break an old one.

My Horse Bucks!

His original training time is undetermined, and he has been off duty for some time. I would ride this horse as though he was a new colt until I could get a feel and read him correctly. Until this is determined, Marla may want to consider some professional help.

I have to take into consideration Marla's ability as a rider and age. She simply wants to have a trail horse and has no desire to ride broncs.

Heed this advice offered to a reader whose horse bucks at the canter.

So teaching her to keep in time with the front end and pull down is out of the question. However, for safety, I do suggest a night latch on her saddle fork. I'd like to see Marla get her horse tired before asking for a lope or heading out into the open. Actually, I would like to see him worn out. I would try trotting some circles and figure eights, then offering a downward transition to the walk. She can build up to loping figure eights, finally adding simple lead changes to the figure eight pattern.

This will give her an opportunity to improve her horsemanship. Once I could see a little sweat and physical tiring, I would then offer the lope to the horse as a reward.

Riding the Better Side of Bucking

If he remained under control, I would give him a nice gesture for a few strides and come back down to the trot then to the walk so he wouldn't think he was to be loped into the ground. Once he had a job daily and Marla feels comfortable with her seat, then I would offer loping circles without all the drilling exercises. If his conduct continues after being given a fair chance, then he needs to be ridden at lope by an advanced horseman who will give him all the loping he wants after he bucks, plus a little extra.

It wouldn't hurt him at all to cover several miles daily at a good long trot. My hunch that the horse may not be truly broke continues to enter my mind.


I would hire a pro to take him for a spin or two, maybe go all the way back to some round-pen at-liberty training and see what he really knows. Hope this helps, Marla.
