    [RC] Re [RC] Crupper - Rob

    The people I know that use them, tack the horse up with the crupper and
    then longe it until it stops bucking. Then they pay me $10.00 to ride it
    downhill for the first time. Sometimes they jump a little, other times
    we're contacting the nearest air traffic control tower and filing a
    flight plan, and sometimes they just tuck their hind end under
    themselves and sort of squat. Most of the time they don't react very
    negatively at all. Longing seems to get them used to it enough to where
    it doesn't bother them so bad when it starts holding the saddle in
    place. At first I don't do anything too steep either.
