The Pear Experiment
The trend of laying under your horse and putting their foot on your stomach is a growing epidemic. This is a dangerous past time that a lot of young riders having been toting around as something to prove their relationship with their horse is full of trust and a fantastic bond. Yet by doing so you’re putting yourself at a great risk. We attempted to squish a pear today under a horses hoof to show you what a horse can do to a fruit. It didn’t end as I had hoped it too but hopefully maybe at a later date we can get an even better visual result to show you. Pears roll around out from under the horses hoof fairly easily but you can see in part of it that she did manage to slice off part of the pear with her hoof as well rather easily. The damage to the pear was still pretty significant so hopefully it still helps you get the idea. Please stop putting yourself at more risk than you should and practice safe exercises with your horse.
Try your own hand at the experiment and tag us either on here or on tumblr with it so we can see your attempts as well! Make sure that you’re using something safe for your horse and avoid poisonous food objects if you have a food fiend for a horse!
