Sometimes I have a friend come with me to the barn, boy or girl it has happened with both. Well.. a couple times (I was, at the time, riding a 7 year old that only had about 30 days on her 5 years before, she has some major issues) they would do something stupid and scare her and then when she spooked they would make it 100 times worse by either A. Squealing/Screaming and/or B. Running behind or near the horse. I literally had a guy s.c.r.e.a.m at the top of his lungs, drop whatever he was holding, and sprint around the horse. It's safe to say that I now no longer take people out to the barn with me.
