    Made my own bucking dummy!
    4 bags of pea gravel in the legs + wool. Pool noodles in the shirt. Pants sewn to shirt, dummy tied to saddle.
    Gotta make it a house so it can stay in the round pen, a hassle dragging it around.

    Saddle not flopping, dummy not flopping, no violent bucking. No hitting the posts w/stirrups to hit her sides making things worse.
    Rewatched the video, 7 bucks in all. 1 jump while leading that I didn't notice, 1 bad one that lasted 2-3 strides, 1 medium that lasted 5 strides, rest small and short lived. Hitting the low branches caused interest in bucking, but nothing happened. I need to figure out a better way to keep the dummy upright...Tied a string from neck to horn as some point.

    Redoing the pics to post them all. Not in order.

    try tying his arms together in front of him and then anchor them to the saddle horn so he can't fall backward so bad. maybe tie a thin rope or hay string around his neck and find a way to attach it to the back of the saddle so he stays in more of an upright position. I love the progress you are making with her. changing the bad habits of a spoiled horse is so hard. had an arab mare that tried me over and over until she finally decided that I was indeed more stubborn than she was. after we decided to cooperate with one another she was probably the best trail horse I ever had. keep at it kiddo, youall will get there.
