Biggest fears
just a random question.

what are your biggest fears of things that could happen with a horse??

mine would have to be: getting a foot stuck in the stirrup and being dragged, the horse rearing and flipping over, and my biggest fear.... never owning my own horse :wink:

My biggest fear is being bucked off. I've fallen off many times, but never from a buck. I've never actually ridden a buck, and the thought of it terrifies me. I've been kicked, stepped on, bitten, held a horse as it reared and bucked in circles around me, been kicked as I came off a horse's back... but the thought of riding a buck scares me.

My biggest fear with horses is to have one get seriously injured while I'm riding it. It makes my stomach churn to think of a horse falling and breaking a leg while I'm loping it across a pasture.

Being dragged, flipped over on, or rolled on.

I have been dragged... and let me tell you It is NOT fun. It scarred me SO bad. Thank god I only ended up with a bruised rib and sprained ankle, but it was scarry. My biggest fear is having the horse rear up and land on me. O.o

-Having a horse fall backwards while i'm on it.
-My horse tripping/falling while i'm riding her at a full gallop.

Ruining a good horse through my own ineptitude

Rearing. I hate it. I had a horse come backwards on me when I was a kid and it was awful(partially my fault also). I'd rather ride out a bucking fit any day than even one rear.

My biggest fear with horses is one that's happened to me several times already. Having a horse trip hard and come down on top of you.

I don't really have any fears there is only one. I will get on any horse somebody wants me to get on no matter if bucks all the times or wants to take off and bolt anything I'm not scared of, but the only horse I will refuse to get on, is one that rears up. I've heard of so many accidents that I', not willing to risk myself on a horse that gets up high and will possibly flip over. That just scares me to death.

Being stuck in the stirrups. One time got my foot all the way through some too big stirrups. I didn't fall off or come anywhere close, but realizing that if I did fall I would be trapped is what scared me. I don't even ride with stirrups sometimes because I'm that afraid of being caught for any length of time. I'm severely claustrophobic; I'm afraid of not having an escape route. My stirrup thing is just how it manifests when I'm in the saddle.
