I did try to teach her to be a "go-poop" but y'know, it just wasn't important enough to me. So I stopped.
As a note, of all the horses I've seen in backyards (mine and others) I've never seen a horse poop on the move in the paddock. Do you see trails of poop in there? Nope, you see piles. From what I've seen, they stop if given the choice.
Uhh I don't think amidst playing a horse is going to stop, poop, and then go back to playing.
They let it rip as they play, I've seen it. Yes I see piles but they aren't always running around in pasture either. They graze.
