Now let's say you don't know why your horse is bucking. Let's assume your riding habits are good and your horse bucks anyway.

So, instead of stopping, do this.

First, brace your arms against your body yet keep them relaxed and keep contact with your horse. While doing this, lean back and drive your horse to go forward. (Making a horse go forward is a big horse training secret to help you get your horse's cooperation and obedience.)
