1 (Akhal Teke) and 8 (Hackney pony)? :)
1. What is the most ridiculous thing your horse has spooked at?
Rudi has 3 really strange things she’s scared of. One being if you pick out the layer of ice on a bucket of water and drop it. She absolutely hates the sound.
Second is people holding planks of wood. If it’s on a fence it’s fine, but if someone holds it’s super scary. No idea if anyone has ever been mean to her with a plank, but i dont think so.
Third is probably the weirdest. I was going to measure parts of her for some tack fitting, and the only tape measure i found was one of those aluminium ones. She was horrified at the snapping sound it made when it bent :’)
8. Describe the fanciest horse you have ever ridden.
Not really fancy by breed, but more in education. The fjord mare i rode a couple of times while interning could do some fancy stuff like piaffe, school halt and levade.
