Whats your horse scared of?


Well I came up with this thread idea because:

One day I was riding Chinga around at a canter over some low cross poles. Next thing I know a fire truck comes screaming past with its sirens at full blast Chinga didn't flinch. One thing he doesn't like though is me with his food bin on my head calling his name. I think its because it sounds funny.

Another thing he doesn't like is sometimes he randomly puts his ears back at Pumpkinzmyboy. Don't ask why but its funny to watch.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this but "What is your horse scared of or not like?"

Sir Success. Eventer.

A horse i used to ridee was deathly afraid of carriages, and good luck staying on if one came nearr.

A journey of 1,000 miles begins with a single stride.

Jazz isn't afraid of anything....almost, I have yet to figure out what kind of monster lurks in her feed bucket but occasionally she will be eating and out of no where will take off bucking and kicking like something was after her she will stop after awhile than slowly inch her way back to the feed bucket with her eyes set on whatever was in there till she is sure that moster is gone then she will eat again. All the others are looking at her like she's nuts!

Well, T is pretty much been there seen it before. Walka is showing that he can "figure things out" without panicking. Other than the occasional "horse eating stump" he is pretty steady. That is until I pushed my granddaughter out in the stroller to see the horses! Try as hard as he did, he just couldn't bring himself to get too close! Pretty funny to watch. Doing mental battle with himself. Once I took Bella out, he seemed to realize the stroller wasn't what was making all that noise!

Llamas! Found it out the hard way. Thank goodness for the one rein stop. I didn't realize an 1100 lbs horse could fit on my lap.

Haha, my horse is scared of everything. Today he shied at a line that was drawn on the ground! He's also verrrrry scared of clapping, wind, his rug, and he's deathly afraid of hail. D:

It is not enough for a man to know how to ride; he must know how to fall.

Llamas here. Zeus is pretty steady, but those evil llamas are obviously going to kill him.
Ha ha. Found that out on our first trail ride together.

He got over it but sidestepped all the way past the llama, didn't take his eyes off of it for a second until we were far enough away to be
"safe" again.

I give myself very good advice, But I very seldom follow it

haha, i don't own my own horse yet (looking) but the one I ride at my instructors place can be pretty funny sometimes. last week he shied at a milk crate (which he has seen a million times!) and a couple of weeks ago he shied at his own shadow 3 times. sooo funny! we were up on a bank and his shadow was on the road below and in front of him.
