I agree with everyone. This seemed a bit over done to me. I mean sure desensetise your horse but not to the extent that it doesn't react to ANYTHING!!
Another thing is what is this horse like out of the round yard? I'm sure when it's out on trails people just randomly run out and follow the horse flapping a tarp as if they're trying to fly.
Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed.
