That is great. Reminds me of my TB mare. She was a very pretty horse, but man practicing the tests was a comical event. She did actually decide to side pass over the edge of the arena (we just used small enough logs that they would walk over them for the rail), cause she wasn't paying attention, and wanted to say hi. And she did decide that the judges table (fortunately no one was there) were worthy of spooking at and taking off bucking. And in one lesson the trainer decided to play some music, and oh my lord my horse thought the boogie monster was after her. They actually had to turn off the music so that she could see that it was just a box on the table.

Oh and I forgot to mention that she was trained to race, though she never hit the track, so she had a horrible habit of sticking her tongue out the side of her mouth, no matter what we were doing. As soon as the bridle went on, tongue was out the side of her mouth, so every box had some sort of comment about her tongue whenever we did any time of flat show. Dressage, equitation, ect. Jumping was fine though lol.
