Anything that moves, shouldn't be trusted. Anything that doesn't move, shouldn't be trusted.

Or so Chinga likes to sometimes think...

Forgot one:

Tadpoles - OMG, something is MOVING in the mud hole!! Not only will I get stuck and have to await the coyotes coming to eat me, but things will be swimming around my feet and TOUCHING my hooves...

Shiny things.
Dull things.
Things that move.
Things that stay still.
Loud things.
Quiet things.
Things they've seen a million times.
Things they've never seen.
Odd Shapes.
Small things.
Big things.
Things overhead.
Things underneath.
Things far away.
Things really close.
Stuff they can see.
Stuff they can't see.
Stuff that isn't actually there.

OMG! This one! Lol If you go to put a different saddle on Aires or a different saddle pad, he acts like he's never seen a saddle or pad in his entire life.

I just have to add...


My normally fearless gelding who completely ignores dogs, children on bicycles, other horses, all the scary things (especially for a young one), is TERRIFIED of goats and is thoroughly convinced that they are going to eat him. Nevermind that the goat barely comes to my knee. *facepalm*

My friend's horse is so funny when he spooks, he spooks on some of the strangest things here's just a sample of the many: frightening yellow flowers that sway in the breeze, prehistoric horse eating squirrels, grey rocks with white stripes (this should never ever be allowed to happen in nature really!), and finally, the ever fearful blood thirsty attack-partridges. I'm enjoying this thread! Thanks.

One that has been missed is road signs or barricades. Especially the ones that have flags.

A question for when the horse spooks. What do you do?

If it's safe, I have them approach the object and touch it with their nose.

Ah, my friend's dales pony.

We were hacking out and this rat jumped out of no where, now we don't tend to find many rats wandering the streets, however he bolted after it, and stomped and bunny hopped it to death. Once aware it truly was a bloody pulp, carried on.

My old gelding was behind another when we were out, horse in front pooped, and he tried to jump the whole thing.

50 signs on the roads. I trained Doey to go over it, then went to show my dad. LOOK SEE DAD, WE'RE ON IT. Doey looked down, realised what he was on and tried to move all four feet off at the same time, landed on it again then bolted.

Oh, and kids on trampolines. VERY VERY DANGEROUS.
