So the past couple of days I've been around this place, where you race with your horses, that kind of contest where the horses may only run in pace and they have this, not wagon, but in Danish it's called a ''Sulk'' or something, behind them with the rider on.
So today I met this little girl who took care of a couple of big thoroughbreds in the stables, and she told me alot about the horses and so on.
And then she showed me this really tall 2-years old stallion thoroughbred, Malto, which stood with it's back to us in it's box. So she tapped and pushed it on ''it's behind'' until it turned around. It was a very gentle giant and playfull young horse, but I'd just got this impression that first of all, you shouldn't walk behind a horse, and second, that it could kick if you tapped/pushed it on it's behind. I don't know if it's true though, but do horses tend to kick or do something else when doing that?
Thanks in advance!
