Crow Hop - Defined

Crow Hop - In horses, a crow hop is a style of bucking where a horse arches its back and takes short, stiff hops. All four legs come off the ground, but usually not very far; with some horses the back legs barely clear the ground. When a horse crow hops all four legs hang straight down, i.e., the horse does not kick up high with the back legs.

Crow hopping is usually considered a milder form of bucking. For example: "My horse didn't buck hard today, he just crow hopped a little." However, it can still be dangerous and many riders have been bucked off by crow hopping horses.
