Tony-I sure hope you wear a helmet and a vest! If you don't listen to your gut, you may just need them! :)

I've only had that feeling once. My mare looked so angry while I was getting her and myself ready, she even gave me a good chomp on the arm when I saddled her. She was always bratty, but never mean. I didn't take the cue, and I flew off after she bolted with me on the way home from a trail ride. Listen to your gut!

There was a day when I was supposed to have a lesson on my old gelding but I had this feeling that something bad was going to happen. I told my mom and refused to ride that day, but my coach decided that he was still going to get a lesson. She got on him and out of nowhere he bucked and she fell off and broke her collar bone.

those feelings are so weird....one time I looked at Phantom before I got on for poles and he gave me this weird look...I felt like something weird was going to happen but I got on anyway. We started off running up the poles fine but then I noticed the pocket around the first pole ...it was DEEP and Phantom doesn't do well in deep dirt...I tried getting him to pass it and go around it but he knows his job and he put himself in there despite me trying to pull him out and tripped and went down on his knees but I flew over his head and smacked my face on a pole then hit the dirt face first...the cool thing is when I sat up he stood there and looked at me and his expression said "You felt something weird too didn't you?"

never doubt the bond between a horse and rider.

I was gearing up a trotter i always drove at work, when that feeling of somethings wrong came over me. Trainer said I was being silly and to get going. Half way around the track and the horse burst into a fit of bucking. After running him into a fence after he broke half his gear I saw the reason for his outburst. The sulky chaft had snaped and was digging him in the side. Luckily it didn't peirce his skin, just gave him and I a huge fright. My boss listened to me from then on, and I now always trust my gut.
