Re: [RC] [RC] DUMPED! - Suzi Maiorisi

Heidi, you've just described Holly who is off at the trainer at this moment being 'cured' of this!  She goes down the road with her head in a medium set (we don't do the flat QH thing, but she's no stargazer, either) and throws this little leap, hump, kick/buck thing in for fun.  I'll be going to work with the trainer and her in a week or so...can't wait to see if she's actually going to get over it!

Slight correction--a horse can't buck AS WELL with an elevated head...

I've seen more than a few who could tuck their noses right into their
chests, arch their necks, get a GOOD hump in their backs, and increase the
catapult effect by getting some lift in front first with a slight rear
before effectively pitching the riders right off over the top.  (Oh,
yeah--usually to buck off some macho guy who thought he could ride 'em by
just keeping their heads up...  <g>)
