| || | How do you know she didn't? Just because a horse is desensitized to something on the ground, does NOT equal in the saddle. My Arab is completely tarp desensitized, and I bet you money she'd spook if I grabbed up a tarp and started dragging it after her! Having a handler on the ground confidentially showing the tarp is totally different then riding when the horse has to face the scary himself.
