I have a trick riding horse who is completely blind in one eye, you wouldn’t know it by her great attitude. She sees EVERYTHING! Lol.

But I one piece of advice is not to moddy coddle your gelding because he cant see in that eye. Treat him the same as you did before, but just be aware when you are leading him or out on a trail that you need to be his eyes.

My gelding Bishop has only one eye, and he's taking my friend to Nationals with showjumping. All we have to do is when turning for a jump on his blind side is take him abit wide so that he can see it and adjust.

(look kinda close) First three are me and him in 2008, last is Jess last May:

Yes...with Scooter you have to be careful with your turns, as well.

Here I am jumping him about 2'6"...can you tell he's blind in one eye?

[sorry about the video...I can't get it to be just the link

One of my friends has a one eyed horse. She events him at training level and he does just fine. Sometimes things will spook him and when schooling new things she tries to approach in a way that allows him to see it with his good eye first, but they do really well together!
