Really? Same here. My horse has a hackamore because he doesn't like to stop and instead of a harsher bit (I didn't want) he got a hackamore. He likes it a lot.

My boy (err... lesson horse) bucks when he has a bit in his mouth when you get on him. o.o It's a bit nervewracking...

Wow! I could imagine it would be! Louie doesn't do that luckily. (And Louie's not my horse, either. He's a lesson horse but not many other people ride him. A lot of people are scared to)

He's 20 but he doesn't like to stop, it's not like he takes off bucking but he takes off cantering fast/galloping and just won't stop. My instructor said he's the fastest horse she's ever had and she has a OTTB who's dad won the Derby (but the horse himself never raced-he bowed a tendon).

She said if they raced it'd be fun until you realized you couldn't stop XD

Double 75. That's a lot.

Oh wow o.o LTF, He sounds like a character!

That's too bad about the tendon though. Ouch.

Lol, my boy's really lazy to start off with (once you stop him bucking) but he gets going. He's hard to catch. But he's a good boy, has never spooked, always listens. He gives you horsey-kisses on the cheek too
