    Synthetic saddles.

    LOL Not even kidding...I bought a thorowgood and when I took it to the barn to try it on him, he was not happy. Usually I can put anything on him while he's just eating hay...second the synthetic saddle touched him he ran off bucking! Soooooo I brought him up to wash rack and tied him up...started slowly with it. If I got near him with it he completely tensed up his back and head went up...OVER A SADDLE.

    Well after working with him with it for a few days he's ok with it now. I haven't been able to actually try it yet though since I'm waiting for an xwide gullet lol...Deffffff going to lunge him a bit in it first ! Incase he thinks its a demon again and needs to run away from it while its on his back!

    Oh and he could care less about my dressage saddle. The day he was being a weirdo about the thorowgood I grabbed my dressage saddle that's leather and he didnt have a care in the world about it getting on him...but when I reached for the thorowgood again..oh god...

    Not really scary to my girl but she will not step on the white lines on the road for what ever reason. LOL it's quite funny cause she always makes sure she steps over the white lines.

    My mare's little legs just SHAKE every time we pass the tall reeds on the trail by our barn. Big scawy monsters live in there!!!

    But she does LOVE trail. When other horses go out, she looks so longingly after them it just breaks my heart to have to make her stay in the ring.

    Mine wasn't afraid of much until a kamikazee squirrel jumped out of a tree and balled up on his forehead. So yes, then he was afraid of squirrels until I desensitized him to them

    I haven't had my boy long, and until today he wasn't overly scared of anything, though he did dislike puddles.

    But today, he shied (a rare occurrence for him!) at something that he can see easily from his paddock, but apparently is scarier when we walk down the driveway past it.

    A bird of paradise flower, aka these.

    How horrifying.

    Looks like it could eat him all up in a breeze.
    I mentioned in another thread where my boy Trusty was startled by a couple of horse eating Guineas on Saturday afternoon during our trek around the neighborhood. Took a bit of convincing to make him walk between them , right on the side of the road, and the car parked on the other side... I giggled for a second and then pushed him past it.

    Trash cans and goats. When my mare was younger my mother had the bright idea to tie her to a trash can so she could go run in the house to get something she took one step and the trash can fell over so she takes off running with the evil trash can following her it took us forever to catch her poor thing and ever since then she can't ride past a trash without flipping out or snorting at it. As for the goats not sure where that came from but she is convinced their evil too.

    Oddly shaped rocks, big rocks, etc. new habit of hers to spook at.. -__-

    And and things on two wheels, motorcycles, dirtbikes, etc. cannot stand them, 4 wheels? Perfectly fine. A truck pulling a trailer? Heaven forbid. Semis, garbage trucks..please let me dismount..or at least get her off the road before they drive by (and thankfully, most of them go slow)
