My mare is one of the "I'm trotting oh no I need to go bathroom let's slam on the brakes suddenly right about nowwww! Oh Mum, by the way are you alright? You almost went over my head just then" kind of horses

I tried to teach her to move her butt when riding, but she won't budge. It's literally the ONE thing she just will not relent on. I've tried several tactics, all have failed. At the walk I don't mind too much... but the other day when she did it at the trot, I almost came off.

Tart.

Let's look at it this way. If you're the one cleaning it up which would you rather do, pick up one pile or try to pick up scatterings?

Stop to pee, keep going for poo. Main reason is for showing, not exactly a good thing to break down in front of the judge for a poop.

Yep, agree with all the others. Make them keep going while pooing. Mine will all poo while at a full tilt run... though Dakota does like to sometimes be a butthead and try to act like an idiot... Lol.

I always keep my boy going while under saddle. But on the side note I've also never seen him moving while pooping in the pasture. Not only that but he always poops in the same 2-3 places. Maybe this was a stallion thing? He'll full out stop grazing, walk over to one of his "areas", sniff it, then step forward, poop on top of the prior poop, turn around, sniff it, and go back to his grazing spot. Weirdo.

Alot of stallions do this, from what i've been told it's a way of marking their territory.

Whisks will poo on the go but i'll let her stop now and then depending on what we're doing.
Merry is weird, she'll do her poo in the field and then sometimes she'll paw at it till it's smushed in to the ground

I keep mine going if they're pooping.

As for peeing, we weren't allowed to let our horses pee at one of the barns I was at to preserve the sand. So, none of my horses pee undersaddle. I actual appreciated the lack of pee spots in the arena because they can be a hazard. At the last barn I was at the horses were allowed to pee in the arena. I was cantering Jesse and didn't notice that someone had just kicked some dirt in a puddle of pee. Jesse stepped in it and slipped. Thankfully he saved up because I was very sure that we were both going to end up on the ground. I quickly got off of him righ after to make sure he was okay. He had dirt all along the front of his body and on his face.

Well it depends on the horse I ride. Some will walk but some I push a head. And my QH has peed and walked..... it was a weird thing to see. But it was once and I don't know why he was walking after he started.
