Argh!! Them horses!!
My anglo arab literally does not shy at anything - EXCEPT other horses being ridden crossing our paths.
Especially if she cannot see them quite yet; they are obscured by trees or something.
She once nearly threatened to have a heart attack, while skittering on the driveway, dangerously close to falling with me on top at my trainer's, when all it was, was someone innocently riding past. They were hidden from view by a wall. Afterwards, I was literally fuming, that she would nearly kill us both over another HORSE?!?!
Another one: my neighbour always very haughtily (is that a word, haha!) complains that her fancy show cobs suffer from trauma when they see or hear my mule.
Please take into account, this occurs only while my mule is on MY property, turned out, and her precious cobs are on HER property, turned out. And the CLOSEST point that our properties are to each other is the 50m that the horse trail seperates us from each other..
They. Are. Dorks. (Apparently, they never get over it either!)
