My horse is a thirteen year old quarter horse and he has bucking issues. If you try to go into a trot he tries to buck. How do I scold him just not verbally, telling him that he's not allowed to?

First check his health, saddle fit, etc. You would be amazed at what issues arise from just a poor fitting saddle or something causing the horse pain.

Check for any health problems first before you assume it's training related.

He's in perfect health. He's got a sore ribs, He's a retired cow horse. He doesn't get ridden much so could bucking be a result of having to much energy?

It could be but the sore ribs kind of concern me. He could be in pain from those. When you ask him to go into a trot you are pressing his ribs with your legs so that could be why. Try lunging him on the ground and see if he bucks. If he doesn't he is probably in pain when a person is on him or he just has an attitude and doesn't want someone on him.

If he has sore ribs maybe you could get a chiropractor out to look at him :) his back could need adjusting or something. But lunge him on the ground and see if he bucks first.

Get a chiropractor out for those ribs ASAP. I don't blame him for bucking if he's got a rib out.

No, I don't kick him to trot because he's got sore ribs. I usually just cluck at him or make a kissing noise. He is very temperamental and hates being ridden.

there's still pressure being applied to his ribs

Probably because he has a tight girth around his ribs and a rider's legs squeezing his ribs.
