Talking What's the silliest/coolest thing you've ever trained your horse to do?

This is just for fun, and I wanna hear some stories

So what is the silliest, or coolest thing you've ever trained your horse to do? Tricks, or some work that actually needed done and you needed some help? Or just something to show off?

I wanna know if I'm the only one who trains their horse to do odd tasks...

Probably the best Indie is known for is how much she LOVEESSSS to chase things. A few years ago when we raised free range chickens, they used to be a bit of a pain to gather back up... so I harnessed Indie's love to chase things into something useful...

And well... my horse learned how to herd chickens. No joke. Everytime the chickens broke loose into the neighbors yard, I'd jump on my horse with nothing but a halter and lead rope and we would round the buggers up in a fair amount of time. Indie would pin her ears and charge when a chicken went to break loose from the flock, and round it right back in with the others without spooking the entire flock itself. Kind of amazing. Even to this day when she see's chickens (even though we don't have any now) she will tense up and just wait for me to give her the go ahead. I love it

So, what about you guys?

Not on purpose, but I trained my pony to stick his head in my truck window.


Now, he's not scared of any car, and my mom has to lightly bump him with the truck for him to move :-/

Let's see, I'm not taking credit for training these things as he kind of learned them on his own. He can drink out of a straw, he knows how to get a bite of my freeze pop, and he can chug his own beer out of can.
