No, I don't think you can either. Don't feel bad about making them poop on the go, it is not that hard for them to do. When I feel bad is when we are working cattle and my horse gets all stretched out to pee and the cattle start off so I have to get him up and say "Sorry, peeing will have to wait until later". ROFLOL.

One time a boarder at our barn was having a hard time controlling her hot 3 year old Tb gelding on the trails. So she asked me too work with him and so I hopped on. He spooked just about every 3 feet, but luckily no bolting. Well the lady just had a one ear headstall on him (no throat latch) and she must of not had it properly tightened. All he had to do was shake his head and off flew his bridle! Then he spooked at his bridle with me on him and no control! THANKFULLY he did not take off! I laugh at it now but at the time that was pretty freaky! I do feel it was my fault in some ways as I did not check her tack, but in learn I guess!

Jester doesn't do anything really obnoxious, thank god. He just goes until I tell him to stop xD

Annie has to snort at everything new. She also dislikes water, so she jumps even the smallest streams. We're working on that xD

Sally rears if she doesn't want to go. I mean, really rears. She isn't a trail horse. She's a pleasure horse if anything...

Rico is pretty good, but sometimes he'll do a little hop over logs bigger than a few inches tall.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.
