What Is Your Horse Afraid of?
Kristine Oliver Kittens! Mostly because they’re always under his feet, in his hay box, and popping up unexpectedly.
Joe Simonds My horse is only afraid of two things—anything that moves and anything that doesn’t.
Sam Bryant My bottomless-pit, cow-loving doofus is pretty much bomb-proofed, thanks to the freeway we live next to. But every once in a while he gets spooked by his pet chickens when they come up too fast on his blind side, or chase bugs or each other around him.
Meg Webster The current mare I’m riding is scared of white boards and the back of the indoor arena. She doesn’t like tarps, but it’s because the back panel of the arena made a loud “thunk” when we attempted crossing a tarp for the first time. Preeny-Ann Dunkin Wind. All three mares are afraid of Kansas wind, even though they’ve lived here forever. My colt, on the other hand, is only afraid of not getting the most attention.
Arlene Jenkins Crawford Some of mine are even afraid of their own shadow! We were riding one day, and my horse literally jumped sideways when she spotted her shadow! Lucky she didn’t lose me!
Jennifer Desforge Ice/snow falling off the arena roof gets my horse every time.
