My horse recently discovered that he can push gates open when I haven't closed them because I was doing something really quickly. It's as cute as can be... but I'd rather him not disappear into the great unknown! Lol Cute video!

Watch out..some horses get really good at being mischievious! Our mare, Lady, has learned to open gates, stall doors, untie lead ropes (and those of her buddies), and this year to turn the faucet on. All the gates now have a chain on them and the faucet handle is now safely tucked away when not in use.
You always have to watch them... they sure are smart!

On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.

Aww to cute! That's awesome he can do it on command as well =)
Pumpkin can unlock our paddock gate chains from the outside, open the shed door and get to the hay, chaff and chook seed... fun fun

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky
