Why does my horse buck when I ask him to canter?
When a horse canters, the thrust comes from the hind legs, particularly the outside hind leg. (That’s why you ask for canter with your outside leg.) If the horse isn’t strong enough, he will be uncomfortable and will show you that by bucking when you ask for canter or in the middle of cantering.
How do you tame a bucking horse?
Use a jointed bit or snaffle to help keep your horse’s head up. If your horse starts to put his head down and buck, pull hard on the snaffle in a sharp upward motion, to get your horse’s head back up. Make your corrections timely. If you use a vocal reprimand, do so the second your horse starts to buck.
What to do if a horse runs off with you?

Do Daisy rein stop bucking?

Do horses buck when happy?
Although it can be very dangerous for riders, bucking is part of a horse’s natural behaviour and horses can do it for several reasons. Horses can also display this behaviour as a way to get rid of their excess energy, when they are feeling very excited, happy and playful.
Why would a horse throw you off?
Horses will throw their riders if they are in pain from ill- fitting gear, as the rider puts pressure on the horse’s back, and, for example, a poorly fitted saddle will already be damaging the horse’s back and causing pain even before the rider gets on.

How do you stop a running horse?
If your galloping horse is ignoring your cues, the emergency pulley-rein stop can safely bring him to a halt. To execute it, shorten both reins, then brace one hand on your horse’s neck, holding the rein tightly and grabbing mane.

One of the best ways to deter a horse from bolting or doing any other dangerous behavior on the trail is to check in with him every once in a while by asking him to move his feet and soften his body.
