its been a while since i have posted on here but i have a colt well as of today gelding that is stumping me. He is a Grandson of Officer out of a Old jet deck line mare. (QH) wanting to send him to the track but have had 2 trainers send him back after bucking issues. he has really only had about 5 rides of which he was able to buck somone off each time! and these are seasoned riders. Does the Officer line have anything that sticks out as hard to train? I have had 5 others foals off this mare 2 winners on the track and 2 in barrel futurities and NO buckers! since he has been back on the farm he has a new farrier had chiro work done and now he is gelded!! any suggestions on a trainer in my area that handled bronc type starting LOL. yes but seriously stumped! I live on the alabama Tennessee state line and would love to see him race.

He might need one of those "Mustang Makeover" type horsemen. I don't know any down that far - E'town or Lebanon Junction maybe. These guys can usually work miracles in 30-60 days.

Honestly, 5 rides is nowhere enough training before going to the track, or were all 5 rides at the track? I never take one to the racetrack until they have had 60 days of breaking and galloping at the farm. At least 45 rides. Minimum. Good Luck!

What was the report from the chiropractor? Were any major soarness or sensitivity issues found? Ditto from the farrier?

You have already taken the first step.

And Madelyn's suggestion should be, in my opinion, next in line. I know a trainer in MD that will have him leading with a slack line within an hour and walking across a wooden bridge under saddle with in a month.

But Maryland is s long haul..

One last suggestion; stop feeding him grain and put him on free choie quality non alalfa hay while you are getting him under control. That will not hurt him, and will take the edge off. He may even gain weight with hay and exercise

Brookec--as the above--the horse needs to be trained under saddle. can be done at the race track provided there's somebody there that specializes in breaking youngsters, or a trainer willing to under take the job. Otherwise, put ur rider up, hold the horse and get him used to something on his back. I recommend long reigning. I'd be more worried if it were doing anything other than bucking someone off in that environment. see how to train young horses here:

I have, and, it's excellent. Packed with info including detailed description and photos of O'Gorman's method of breaking yearlings. I've tried the method, and it's excellent. First time in my memory I was never dumped by the horse, and, with my present two to date, same deal, knocking on wood.

Found "BUCK" on Netflix a week ago and watched a second time last night

Highly recommend the video for horses people and horseless people
