Yep! He was bucking around like one of those rodeo horses (though not quite as violently, lol) and I got thrown off the first time. But you get used to being bucked around. >.<

its alright once you used to it . i know someone who has been riding for about a year and has never been bucked off and i worry that when she does get bucked off she will give up horse riding thats why i think its better to be thrown off in your first lesson than never been bucked off untill a year into training.

5 gallon,natural planted tank with 1 betta.
20 gallon community tank.
6 gallon guppy fry tank.

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
He is lol. He can really do it all!

The horse that bowed a tendon is fine, actually. He just can't race. You know what the Rolex KY 3-day Event is? He is hopefully going in a few years with my instructor (she's hoping and he probably will). If she goes to Rolex though, she might start charging more for lessons-too much for me to ride there :(

Louie's not lazy and doesn't spook either, tractor came right by once and he was fine. He knows how do anything I could ask him to do and probably more-you just have to know how to get him to do it XD. He's a real pain to catch, he runs away, but I've found if I kind of get after him (make him go even when he stops) he'll stop and let my catch him after a while.

Horse kisses! That's cute!

Heh, you have a point. Should we PM instead? XD

Wow, that's pretty cool about the Rolex event!

What kind is he? I'm sorry if you said this in earlier posts, I haven't seen...

I think starting your own thread is a great idea.
