Haha, wow this topic blew up while I was gone! XD
@Rideeverystride, Yeah, he's definitely a goober. (: Thanks!
@EdmontonHorseGal, I got dumped like that once! Retired polo horse, she spooked at something and suddenly it was open air under me. ;D
@horseperson4, Caspian is scared of.. Anything that's not 'natural'. Chairs, tires, pools, canopy's, walls, bleachers. And then everything else. He was, as far as we know, pretty much untouched before he was 8 so he isn't used to all these strange human contraptions. XD
@waresbear, Yeah! It was nuts! What was even more crazy was how the turd got all of his dopplegangers and preached at how horrible my trainer was and got him banned. Caspian is notoriously a bit of a stud muffin, and even though my trainer saved his bum by not letting Caspian trample him on the way out, the guy still got all mad at how he used.. Oh no.. The dressage whip. Because you can hold one but never ever use it.
@JulieG, Oh, that sounds like a horrible thing to happen.. XD Riding into sprinklers is one thing. But them spontaneously turning on.. Caspian probably would have wet himself.
@boots, I used to exercise this big thoroughbred polo horse, and he was terrified of the right side of the polo field due to scary goats and a stray palm tree. One day, he spooked himself so bad that he jumped into the 8 foot deep ditch and then tried to take off back towards the barn. I have no freaking idea how I stayed on to this day, but I did!
@SammysMom, Thanks! Yeah, he's a goober. (:
@cowgirllinda1952, Nahh, he was begging for cookies when that was taken.. XD
Whoo that was long. Sorry guys! I didn't want to leave anyone out! XD
