I think that horse dislikes getting stung by a bee. Liking or not liking driving had nothing to do with it.

If love to tell you all the stories about our "crazy" arabs - including the pb stallion my 6yo daughter has been riding (around mares in heat no less *gasp* since she was 3. *rolls eyes and walks away from thread muttering under her breath*

It's funny how no one seems to understand sarcasm.
I believe the entire post in which you are refering to was meant as a joke. - hence the "lol" at the end.

It wasn't sarcasm. That poster meant what she said about Arabians. The 'lol' was just because she thought it was heelarious that Ayrabs are sooo stupid.

A bee? Whoops didn't read that.

I think you're overly sensitive.

Can't hear a darn thing from either video, but from what I can see it was handled as well as any random, crazy situation could be. It could have been much worse. The horse could have been tangled in it's own lines, or tangled into one of the other carted horses it barreled into out of panicky fear. Since horses have a blind spot directly in front of them and the eye guards (I can't remember what they're really called), I can kinda see how the horse ended up running into a couple of fellow equines (not to mention it's panicked state of mind). At least everyone came out alright!

I think the blatantly ignorant comment was unnecessary and unwarranted. I'm sure no one else appreciates such overly-used and thoroughly incorrect generalizations about their own horses' breeds.

Folks, I think it's time to close the thread as it seems to be getting too personal. This video was beat to death like 10 times here. Accidents happen, it has NOTHING to do with the breed. I'm very glad noone was hurt (especially that handicapped lady).
