I've had murphy for 2 years, when we bought him he hadn't been well schooled as he the girl who owned him had a disability, so he was just a hacking horse. He was 100% safe (or so i thought) until i got him home... He had a bad habit of bucking - so I was told by a previous owner, I quickly found out just how bad he was!
So basically, my instructor and I have been working hard to get him out of the bucking habit- we've tried literally EVERYTHING! Side reins, natural horsemanship, etc etc. Everybody keeps telling me that once a horse gets away with bucking there's no way to stop them... is this true?
Murphy has bucked me off twice in the past couple of weeks- into a barbed wire fence whilst on a hack and then also took off in the field for no reason. So as you can guess, mum has had enough and said that we should probably sell him. I really wish I didn't have to sell him but my mum and I were speaking about maybe getting a horse that I can do pony club with (since we cant take murph out without giving him a calmer- otherwise he bucks)
whats your opinion on selling him? Can i stop him from bucking?
