I have a question that's kinda' on the topic here... I was kicked in the chest by a trainers horse. She told me he was claustrophobic. I had to go to the hospital and have fluid drawn out of my chest cavity. Is this a true statement?? Can horses really be "claustrophobic" when a human is in their space and yet they are in an entirely open area!???

Life seems mighty precious, when there's less of it to waste.

That sounds like one fo two things. Either the horse was a disrespectfull jackass, and was telling you what he thought, or he was in prey mentality, was scared, and kicked you "to save his life because somehow he was going to die."

I don't think this was a case of claustraphobia. Trailer loading, ect, horses that are it is more of a let me get the heck out of here now, I will run you or anything over to get out.

As moderator, I think I should report all your horse beaters. No, maybe I should ban you! Which do you want?

What? A spanking or standing in the corner is not an option?

I was dumbfounded, and for a while had no idea how this idea had sprouted. I asked a couple of my friends, and it turned out that one of the younger volunteers from the ranch had seen me smack my gelding with a crop when he pushed into me.

Now I am not exactly small, but nor am I going to let my horse think it's okay to push into me. I need him to be aware of where I am at all times and know that I am NOT about to get pushed around. And it's not like I beat him with the crop. All I did was give him a swift smack on the butt and say "Over!" ... To top it off, the incident she brought up happened several months ago.

But alas, these little kids think I beat my horse.... :roll:
HA! I had to deal with a similar situation at our barn a week or so ago. The lady who owns the mare that threw me was chatting with me while I was cleaning Aires' hooves. He was being a butthead two-year-old and trying to pull his left hind foot out of my hand. He nearly succeeded and actually clipped my thigh with his hoof, so I dropped his hoof, smacked him with the flat of my hand on his rump and said "Stop being a dick!" So the lady asks me if I often hit my horse. I said yeah, but only when he's being a jerk, like just then. I even told her that I smacked him one HARD the day he latched onto my forearm with his teeth for no apparent reason. Anyway, I go to pick up Aires' right front foot and the lady says "I'd *never* hit my horse. That's cruel and it can hurt them." I went OFF on her! I was livid! Here's the full story of how I went off on her: I need to vent about stupid people

Needless to say, any time I push Aires over or give him even a light affection pat, my friend and just about everyone else tease me that I'm beating my horse. Also, the lady has said "Hi" to me once since it happened, but other than that has thoroughly avoided me. Lol

I've had a few incidents with this.

Back when I was working on Jake's barn sour problems I would spend hours out on trails, walking, stopping and trying to relax. But against my wishes 80% of the time Jake used every muscle in his body to prance. So within 10 minutes of pointing home on trail he would be dripping sweat.

I had a jogger come up to me once, while I was stopped letting him relax they came up and told me I needed to stop running my horse into the ground and that she was going to call animal control. "Horses can not run forever, look at him! He's exhausted." I stared at the lady in such confusion. One I was trying to walk home, two I had been out on the trail for only about 30 minutes total. And my 'Exhausted' horse was prancing when all I wanted to do was hold still/walk slow. The lady gave me a dark glance before running off. I didn't even say anything because I was so pissed and baffled.

On a less but somewhat relate topic I had a 8 year old sob at my feet once because I was putting a worm on a hook for fishing. She kept screaming "How can you do that to god's beautiful creature?" I was looking around like where is this kids parents? I ended up slinking away after a parent came over to console the child.

Oh my my. You all are going to hell for what you've done.

I guess WE will just have to have a party when we all get there, lol.

I could share quite a few stories of my own. My most recent incident was when my precious Lucy laid down while being rode. My leg was pinned under her and all I could do to get her up was to kick her with my free leg in the butt. I'm so bad.
