Exclamation My horse pawed and missed the horse- got me>:(

OH my did that hurt.. I was introducing him to my friends horse- both horses on a lead.. and Suddenly Sunny pawed at him and sort of jumped in the air.. and got ME.. OUCHHY...

Is this something that can be.. well ended? since it just happens when he meets other horsess..? ( rare)

I just don't think its safe.. what if a child was standing where I was.. Or I went to a show and he did that and the 'victim horse' got cut?

Just worries me.. He is a great horse.. and this is pretty much the only thing that reallly bugs me..

Well for one, the horse should be paying attention to you while on the lead, not the other horse. If you want the horses to get to know eachother, do it through a sturdy fence with you not in the way.

If youre going to be riding together, give the horses their space until they do know eachother.


Soon as your horses attention was off you and on the other horse you should have made him work and got his attention back.

I'm not always going to have that option but yes normally that is how we do it. And we did before we were walking them together

If youre going to be riding together, give the horses their space until they do know eachother.
Again, If I were at a show I could not really control what /where people do with their horses....:/ BUTTTT I TOTALLY get what you are saying..

Im just worried that I could be at fault if this did happen and someone else got hurt.. if that makes since..

THIS.. I did do this.. so hopefully .. he might think before he does it next time.. haha.. HOPEFULLY..



.
I'm just wondering if there is anything to stop it completely? No?

To pretty much stop it, keep your horses attention on you.
Know your horse.
Get after him any time hes not paying attention to you.


If studs can be super well behaved at a show, yours should be excellent.

Don't ever allow him to meet another horse while on the lead. This is exactly why.

what happens if next time one of the horses spins to double barrel the other horse and your in the way? Broken bones, Paralyzed from a spinal injury, death?

The best way to never have this happen again, is never put yourself in this position again.

I agree with ClaPorte, I never let mine get nose to nose with a strange horse whether in the saddle or on the ground. Not only is that practice an accident waiting to happen but it's also a good way for one horse to catch a contagious disease from the other.

Exactly this.
I'm another who won't let my horse meet another horse while on the lead or under saddle. Far too dangerous with the high risk of striking.

horses can "meet" each other on their own time. while they are on your leadline, YOU are all they need to meet. Keep them far enough apart that they cannot sniff noses or kick each other.
I am glad you were not seriously hurt. take care.

You aren't guaranteed safety even when they know each other! Pasture buddies can squeal and strike. Always best to keep a bit of a distance, especially when you may be between them.

Do not even let him look at another horse. He doesn't need to "meet" the horse he's going to be around.

Selena is around hundreds of horses a year, often in close quarters, squished on the sidelines of a race, and never once is she allowed to "meet" them. She will stand there like a rock and wait for my command. As I would expect any other horse I'm handling to do.

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