My husbands green, but “broke” horse was fresh Friday night and went to bucking. Hubby lasted a few and went to bail off before getting into stumps. His spur hung up on his stirrup and he ended up under our horse. Horse did not try to not step on him and continued in place striking him multiple times. Got him in the head, on his ribs, leg and arm. When my husband managed to get out from under him horse went back to being completely relaxed.
We have both been bucked off / came off many horses over the rears and never had one behave like that. My husband used to ride bucking horses and never got hurt as bad as Friday night. This horse loves attention and enjoys to work. Anyone experience this or have any insight into what might have been going on in his mind.?
Needless to say we will never be able to trust this horse fully again. I don’t think the horse would intentionally hurt someone but he could have easily killed my husband. Our trainer who put 60 days on was shocked by the behavior.
