Recipe for a train wreck - Leaf Blower and a Horse

So very proud of my boy that I had to share.

We were riding at Bridle trails State Park in Bellevue, WA (there's a similar thread in that area as well) and we came upon a maintenance guy clearing the trail with a leaf blower. I expected very bad things to happen but LT was like a rock. No problem at all.

Video of the incident is here Bridle Trails State Park in Bellevue Washington

Two days later LT and I came in 3rd in a mounted orienteering event.

I'd say he's a keeper!

Very impressive Trails! Just added leaf blower to my list, actually have one and am anxious to try it out. I'd have to agree that he is definitely a keeper!

LT is gorgeous, congrats on your 3rd place!

Also I love the sign at the trail, people here are so stupid and have no horse sense, sneaking up quietly, thinking they won't scare the horse when they should speak and let their presence be known!

While riding in town once we got sprayed by small rocks and debris when a man turned around with his leaf blower in our direction. It was unnerving but he just caught us out of the corner of his eye and when he turned so did the blower!
By the way.......
My leaf blower is my best barn clean up tool! I use it everyday and it is way easier on the back than brooming large spaces. The horses ignore it. I love my leaf blower!

Hmmm. Someone should add "Leaf blower" to the desensitizing post! Lol

Yeah my barn cleans the aisles with a leaf blower and the horses are use to it

Very awesome! And, I'd like to say that whoever makes the rules at that park needs to give our trail owners a call. I've never seen "speak up to make your presence known" printed out on a horse trail!
My colt got accidentally introduced to a leaf blower last year. At first he jumped, then when the guy running it pointed it at him, he tried to stick his face in it. XD
