Argh, some people. I was leading Snickers down a narrow forest road with a fencing on one side. We were on the side of the fencing when a car came up from behind. I asked Snickers to stand still right by the fence, so that the car could get past us easily, but apparently it wasn't enough, as the driver sped up right when she was driving past the horse and I saw her cursing and using explict, rude sign language. O_o Snickers is very safe and brave around traffic, but this made him startle and he swung his hindquarters towars the car as it rushed by and for a second there it seemed that he could get hit or kick the car. Some people... It was so incredibly rude and unsafe!
Meh, but drivers around here mostly are clueless in how to act around horses. In our first barn there was a large highway just by the arena and often truck drivers would honk loudly just as they were passing horses and their riders. Most had gotten used to it, but there still was an accident from time to time when a horse spooked from the sudden rushing and honking sounds.
I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.
