A Bit About Me and my Horse(s)
I have loved horses all my life and have been riding since I was five I was in 4 h and on the equestrian team. I bought a year old quarter horses gelding three years ago he is very green broke but an amazing little man.

Could he just be young ?

So I have been talking about my gelding bucking at a canter and many people said its the saddle or his back or other things . I'm wondering if it is because he is young ? I girl at the barn I am at is having the same trouble with her three year old fully bucking . Could it be that he just is high spirited and learning what he can get away with ? Like a child exploring boundaries ?

What kind of bit is best for a green horse

I have tried the plain old snaffle on my gelding but he doesn't respond to it at all so I now use a d ring snaffle and it's still a snaffle so he responds a little better but not much he is honestly easier to ride with just a halter on and reins snapped to it. But because he is still so green and I take him out on field rides and in new places I don't feel as safe. He completely hates the hackamore so I don't use that. What is a good bit that is light and he will respond too ?

On him he will either buck or he will completely refuse to canter and just do an extended trot. He is easy to ride at a walk and trot he is a bit on the lazy side but he has always been willing to please. I have loped on him a few times but it is always short lived… Continue

Hi Brittney,

Glad to help!

Just out of curiosity which type of hackamore did you try?

Be sure that the bit you get fits from side to side.  Since the Kimberwicke projects up it is very important that the bit is wide enough!
