I am a VERY inexperienced rider who, at age 45, is just learning about horses. I took my gelding Paso Fino to the round pen today just to get up on him and sit a while and let him walk around a little to help my balance. The first time I dismounted he was ok, but the sencond time, he started bucking and went all rodeo on me. I made him yield his hindquarters both right and left when I got him and I also made him back up some too. Was that the right thing to do? It scared me to see him buck like that---he's never done that before. I felt like I should have got back on him, but frankly I was just too shook up. I need advice from some experienced horse people! Thanks.
