Okay, as I am safely behind a computer I'll admit I have done that too, with my adult horses!

Oh dear, I am literally crying from laughter!

My trainer has quite a high strung horse, that literally get a fright EVERY time he (the horse) farts.

Its like he doesn't know why this scary sounds keeps following him around!!!

I think this is interesting. I once rode a big warm blood for about 2 years, and only once did he ever do this: big fart, big buck and bolt! Could he have scared himself into a bolt? Amazing.

I am totally suscribing!

A horse which stops dead just before a jump and thus propels its rider into a graceful arc provides a splendid excuse for general merriment.

My horse does it enough so that now he never scares himself... But it does seem that the only time he ever farts a ton is when I am brushing his tail, cleaning his back hooves, or anything to do with being right by his hind end >.< He also does it a ton when I lunge him... Really embarrassing when I am lunging my friend on him and all he does it a trot/fart. Which is like *Beat, beat, fart, beat, beat, fart, beat, beat, fart.... and etc. I always get weird looks... And so does he

I say the horse is fine, just scared of his own farts...

Oh, we have a dog like that. He farts, and wakes himself up from a dead sleep.
