If your horse is misbehaving with the saddle on-GET OFF. Why put your life at risk for something that can be taken care of safely? A bucking, rearing, shying, bolting psycho is a horse that hasn’t learned all of the lessons it should have learned on the ground. My horse Tarik is bucking slightly under saddle. Instead of riding-it-out-of-him, I am going back to the basics. Obviously I missed something. Now of course there’s times when it’s just a minor issue and you can continue riding. But if the behavior doesn’t stop, then go back to the ground.
