If only I had two hands to post all the things my mare does. She always does something new that just blows me away. This mare is the smartest horse I have ever owned.
Might try to post later.

Well my boy Boo has been observed on a couple occasions trying to push paddock mates through electric fences so he can get through with out getting the shock.
He is a terrible little devil for testing fences to the limits, especially electric tape.
He was spotted by my cousin trying to coax/ push her horse through the tape once. And the other time My mum saw him trying to push my other dopey TB through :roll:.

I have also seen him fiddle with the chain and paddlock around the gates with a expression saying he knows just were to get out but darn the contraption holding it shut.

Santana can open stalls. he sticks his nose through the bars, and pulls down. He then twists to get out, and noses the now-un-locked door open. Stupid smart horse.

Millie knows that if she turns to the back of the stall and hangs her head people feel bad and give her a carrot.

Dozer's stall has a latch that you lift up and pull back to open. It didn't take long for him to start letting himself after finishing his dinner. He would go straight for the can with the senior feed and treats in it... Now we have a chain AND the latch...

I am kind of glad my horse isn't overly smart. He's not dumb, but thankfully not smart enough to think up and pull off some of the tricks that your horses do! My guy's only 'clever' thing is that he can limbo. If there is a single rail fence, or a barbed or straight wire fence that someone has allowed to get loose, he happily limbos and stretches his way under and out so he can find some good grass. Thankfully he won't test it with electric, and he only goes as far as the nearest tasty grazing!

Annie has trained everybody who works with her to give her treats before she'll work. if you walk up to her with her halter she'll let you pet her all over, but raise that halter and you'll get the butt. if shes out, she'll walk off.
But if you have a mint or she smells a treat, she'll stand right with you and even put her nose in the halter for you. i can get her without treats, shes had too many comin ta jesus meetins over givin me the butt, but her lease girl and her new buddy brian still get the treats first treatment.

Annie impresses me every time i see her with a kid. she goes from being my impatient, demanding, willful mare to a calm, responsive, respectful mount. ive seen her stop when her lease girl gets off balance and even leaning to keep her in the saddle. you can see her thinking of where each foot is when shes led by youngsters (5-under). it makes me proud of her :)
