This annoys me more than anything else about show horses and show riders. They ride roundy round in the arena and never get exposed to life in the real world. If my horses don't have enough brain and spine to handle being at a show AND being ridden out on trail or on the street or wherever else I please to go, they don't stay long. My horse would not spook at a baby carriage (pram) for more than a minute before we'd work on that real quick. Unreal.
