[RC] Bucking horse - Sheila_Larsen

Go to your vet for health issues and not for horse training.  30 years
training arabs for show may not be the qualifications you want.  I remember
bitting up my poor horse for up to an hour in her stall way back when when
training for western pleasure.  If I could fall at her feet and apologize
if I could.  I get tears in my eyes every time I think about it.  Learn to
lunge him with side rides, recheck the saddle -they can have broken trees
and you can't tell without ripping it apart.  It very well may be be a
training issue but I don't think you will solve it in the manner your
vet/trainer is suggesting.   Would you want to be tied up that way.  Have a
second opinion about saddle.
