Bucking, bolting, leaping... and farting LOL

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

He didn't seem to mind it in the beginning but then spazzed, I think she was trying to desensitize him.

I was surprised she didn't drop the plastic sooner.... but then she was probably concentrating so hard on staying on, that she didn't think to.

She rode that pretty well! Can't say I have ever tried to desensitise a horse using that particular method Each to their own.

Although that video perfectly illustrates why I love bigger horses - when they misbehave they generally do it on a straightish line.

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

It's possible she did desensitize the horse to it on the ground first. Horses can spook from an object they've seen a bazillion times before.

My trainer has a yellow post at the edge of her property, I've ridden past it more times than I can count and one day it turned into the Evil, Horse-Eating, Yellow Post!! There I was, spinning around in circles going WTH!?
