Here’s a great idea: Let’s take an uptight event horse and surround it with screaming people and then wave a flaming torch around in its face! Fail.

Horse + Fire – Whoda thunk that would be a recipe for disaster? I can’t believe they even agreed to attempt it.
Glad to see that we Americans haven’t cornered the market on dumb ideas!
why wouldn’t they have used a quiet been there done that horse – silly people!
Obviously, this horse hasn’t participated in Pony Club games….Zara could have just as easily dismounted and done the job in good style….but no, make the equestrians look like out of control boobs….sigh.
you’d think they’d have done a bit of desensitizing BEFORE this big event. sometimes I wonder…
That was her mother grabbing the reins there, I believe. I love the girl – the one filming? – shrieking, “EVERYONE BE QUIET!” Righto, like that’s gonna work…
You know… these horses perform in front of huge crowds and take their victory laps to roaring cheers. They jump huge scary jumps. Some horses are even trained to jump through firey hoops.
This wasn’t stupid. Horses just randomly spook, sometimes at things they’ve seen before.
well said! I agree When people try to argue with me about “how horses are SO stupid…” I never disagree. That’s what makes us able to sit on their backs without them realizing they are 1200lbs of pure Incredible Hulk, with the capacity to crush us in a split second.
