A few months ago I was riding bare back around the outskirts of the boarding facility and as we passed a power pole, a loud zap emitted from it and scared me and my horse, he tucked and bolted. I fell and hit my head (never rode with a helmet BEFORE this), got a concussion, and have really had fear of riding away from the barn at all now. We have always been unseparable until now. I even want to move out and board somewhere else but its hard to find a place close.
I know its a psychological hang up. Everyone else goes out on the trail but we never go anymore, my horse even hates getting near that spot, probably cause he feels my anxiety on top of his. Our facility is on PG&E property and it a huge plant. I miss riding and my horse is not getting the exercise he used to.
