smash up

Well everyone keeps on about bomb proof horses and I do,nt believe there is such a thing,myself and my son were out today with a little stallion horse in a four wheel dray,this horse is 8yrs old and has seen everything there is to see and could be described as bomb proof,we had been out about 2 hours when a lorry over took us and there was an empty plastic milk carton on the road,which the lorry wheels hit and spun it skittering over the road straight against the horses foot,well he set off kicking ,galloping and not for death could he be stopped ,scattered pedestrians like skittles,i managed to turn him into a steel palisade fence and the ***** even tried to climb that, this horse has been driven at least 4 times a week for the last 5yrs so it shows any horse can can do the unexpected

Anything can happen. When mine have been despooked they have had stuff dangling on there legs and feet also and noisy stuff banging around under there feet so they didn't get scared. Like metal trash can lids thrown on the ground under them, noisy leaf blowers. Not to say I still may have an accident but I feel it is less likely than with others. I went to a stable for a lesson with my 2yr old and they were going to do something scary and noisy and warned me to move so my horse wouldn't get scared. I told them to go ahead she would be fine, I was just holding her anyway and she was fine but you never know. It suprised me that they wouldn't normally accustom there horses to those kinds of things.

I totally agree -- you just never can know for sure. No matter what the training and preparation. Did you, the horse and cart all come out OK?

LOL! Not laughing at the unfortunate experience, but at your description of the events that were so vivid and 'colorful'.

Glad to hear no skittles were harmed, and that your '*****' wasn't seriously injured.
