horse farts; spooks himself

Today during my lesson we were doing some jumping and I was learning half-halting. It was super fun and really exhausting! The best part, though, was when we were landing one of the jumps, my lesson horse farted and spooked! He took off but I managed to get him under control. My trainer was confused, this horse i've ridden regularly and never had a problem with him, and there wasnt any stimuli that could have cause him to spook. But I heard it, it was very distinct . Of course I didn't want to embarrass the poor thing so I didn't tell my trainer and we brushed it off. We finished the lesson on a great note also. Definitely the funniest part of my day and I wanted to share lol

How would you have embarrassed the horse? That is impossible. If he spooked when he tooted he was likely trying to tell you he's had enough. He's heard himself toot many times since birth so it wasn't something new. Tell your instructor as she'll be concerned about why his spook happened.

Isn't that funny when they toot really loud? My QH toots every single time she gets excited and bucks around - Laney, my Morgan toots as she walks when she's excited about feed time! I must say, though, that your horse, like mine, doesn't think a thing about those toots! I would agree that something may have spooked your horse, but was a coincidence @ that exact time.... just something to think about :)

Seen a couple horses scare themselves once last week I was tacking up a horse in her stall and she bumped her water bucket and it *gasp* made a NOISE! She jumped back and when I tried to bring her back to it she stood like a rock, so I left her to figure it out herself, she's going to need water and some point.
The first time was a particularly spooky horse who was scared of life 9 and now is able to have a gunshot form his back...my little baby's all grown up
) he sniffed a piece of paper and his breath moved it, clearly terrifying I just stood there like "really Gman? Really? YOU MADE THAT HAPPEN!

We have an Appy that whenever he toots loudly, he spooks himself. Even out in the pasture. Sometimes he coughs and toots. Sometimes its just getting up off the ground. He's 7 and he takes off running and bucking. Maybe its because he's an Appy or he thinks something made a weird noise and tickled his butt.

My horse doesn't spook when he farts...but my dog does...she's a goofy Brussels griffon...whenever she farts if its a little loud she whips around and then looks at me like omg mom what was that?! If she was a horse I don't think anyone would want her because she spooks at everything! Like if my bf and I both call her name at the same time...she thinks something is up and will slowly walk downstairs away from us...looking back every so often like "are you sure?"
