How To Use Smart Horse Training To Stop Your Horse From Bucking

Written by Andy Curry

It can be enormously frightening to be on a bucking horse. If you're a novice rider, a bucking horse can almost force you to give uprepparttar "owning a horse" dream. But it doesn't have to be that way.

I've read where people who can ride a bucking horse feel they're a good rider. That may be. But it doesn't mean they're good at training. And training is what we want to do.

Preventing bucking begins whenrepparttar 125758 horse is a colt. One must go to every extent in his training so he won't be inclined to buck - and that includes preventing bucking if he tries.

Naturally, that doesn't help you if your horse bucks already. Thus, if your horse bucks thenrepparttar 125759 question is whether or not it is solvable. The answer is: Usually.

The first thing to do is try and figure out why he bucks. This may be done by trying to eliminaterepparttar 125760 causes.

As a for instance, one ofrepparttar 125761 most common causes of bucking is thatrepparttar 125762 rider punishesrepparttar 125763 horse's mouth without knowing it. Also, he may be givingrepparttar 125764 horse conflicting aids. For instance,repparttar 125765 rider may boot his horse forward and jerk onrepparttar 125766 reins to slow him down. Thenrepparttar 125767 rider jerks his head around to turn him. Asrepparttar 125768 horse fights thisrepparttar 125769 rider gets mad and boots him hard again.

Finally,repparttar 125770 horse bucks. Why? Because he's absolutely frustrated.

Thus, fixing your riding habits to ones that make sense and are thoughtful for your horse will solve that problem. If you're a novice rider then riding lessons will help you immensely.

As you ride, ride relaxed. Focus onrepparttar 125771 feel of your horse. Give himrepparttar 125772 aid or signal to do what you want. Don't over exaggerate it. Give just enough signal to get him doing what you want then let it be.

If you plan to put him into a lope from a walk or trot, or vice versa, then think ahead and do it in a relaxed fluid manner. Don't surprise or startle your horse. Keep him relaxed. A relaxed horse is not going to buck.

Another solution may be changing bits. If you are using a curb bit perhaps you should try going to a snaffle. A snaffle is easier on a horse's mouth. It will still maintain contact with your horse and help him relax.

Another common time a horse bucks is whenrepparttar 125773 rider asksrepparttar 125774 horse to canter or lope. A horse will sometimes buck inrepparttar 125775 canter because it's natural for him to. It could also happen ifrepparttar 125776 rider signals his horse too suddenly and severely in asking forrepparttar 125777 canter.

You see, a lot of people think they have to boot their horse hard to getrepparttar 125778 canter- - and when they do, they jerk onrepparttar 125779 horse's mouth when they boot him. Or,repparttar 125780 rider may ride with loose reins sorepparttar 125781 horse will canter and then jerk his mouth to try and slowrepparttar 125782 horse down right when he begins cantering.
