Really? Are you sure? I have seen nervous horses, sweat, tremble, prance, dance, kick, roll eyes, rear, leap and hop, yet I have NEVER seen a horse urinate while doing these things. I have seen nervous horses stop in mid prance to wee and then carry on prancing after the wee. The only time I have ever seen a hirse wee while moving was an old, old horse who became completely incontinent and had to be put down not long after.
