EXACTLY Kevin, he was keeping his eyes on what was bothering him, his unfamiliar surroundings, the reason he was not paying any attention at all to her, he was overstimulated by his environment. She tried to use all 5'1" of her to forca a frightened 1200lb animal to pay attention to her and ignore his natural instincts to watch what he was afraid of and got frustrated and violent when that did not work. NATURAL horsemanship indeed.
