Sometimes only a movie quote reference can fully convey the strange things our horses do.
For example, is your mare witchy and convinced that she will melt if she ever touches water? Wizard of Oz. Do you feel you need some kind of supernatural “force” when trying to win a battle of wills with your horse? Star Wars. Is your horse last in the pecking order, but still attacks jumps (and life) with all she’s got, whether it’s pretty or not? And does she make out with trees? Superstar.
See, it’s really not as much of a stretch as you’d think.
