    The one day I spaced a helmet... my horse bolted when some deer ambled by along the hill. I got him under control (I am a very stern mother...) and then proceeded to talk to the deer. They actually came up close to the arena and both my horse and the deer sighed a huge breath.

    I don't know which was more scared, but all I can say is I was pissed and kept on riding and went off to put a helmet on.

    I would go Jackie Chan on a deer if it ambushed us like that!

    When I was a senior in high school, I was driving at midnight in the middle of town when a small buck ran out from behind a tree and into my passenger door. It got up and ran into the park across the street. That day was the first day of deer season too.. bah. (Luckily, I was in an auto body class at the time and replaced and painted the parts myself for a fraction of the price.)

    Then sometime else that year, one of the cross country girls got taken out by a deer during a meet. She somersaulted and kept running. Bahahaha.

    I think, after hearing all these spook stories, that I'll just keep my mare. On a trail ride, a deer jumped across the trail right in front of our group. Some of the horses freaked out- rearing and/or spinning around. Dancer just looked at them like they were idiots. She did watch the deer run off, but she was just interested in the commotion - not scared/spooked.

    That photo is amazing. Phoenix sometimes spooks at deer, I think if they startle him he spooks but if we just see them he's fine. He spooked up the side of a hill one day when one ran away from us, we ended up onto of the hill with a nice view so I wasn't too concerned.

    The deer in the park we ride in are too used to people, they just stand there like "we were here first, get your own trail"

    Oh I would hate to come across a buck in rut in person, let alone on the back of a horse!

    Deer seem very docile but they can be very agressive especially when protecting younguns. I once was nearly attacked by a doe. I was on foot and got too close to her family. She snorted and pawed the ground. I tried to intimidate her but she made it clear that she was the boss. If I had pressed on I think she would have mauled me.
