I thought it would be fun to share our funniest stories of when our horses spooked at something because, let's be honest, it happens to everyone :)
I'll start -
There was one time I was in the small indoor arena at my barn just watching my friend longe her horse. I was on my horse and he was standing there perfectly relaxed so I had the reins very loose and my feet out of the stirrups. All of a sudden, and I don't even know what caused this, he spooked at something and took off at a full gallop. There was a one-foot jump in front of us and he took off over it right into the middle of my friend's longing circle. I managed to stay on and my friend stopped her horse in time for nothing bad to happen. I should mention that I was in a dressage saddle and I don't jump. I couldn't stop laughing, and really wish someone caught it on video!
