We’ve all been there before — a horse who is reluctant to cross water or take on some other new task. Watch how this horse handles it!
When this rider tried to coax her horse into walking through the creek, he clearly had other ideas about what should be happening here. So she did what any patient rider would do and tried to change her approach.
In a new game of ‘money see, monkey do,’ the rider shows the horse that the water is not, in fact, filled with things that eat horses. Soon enough, her horse discovered a new favorite activity. Check it out (Note: you must be logged into Facebook to view the video.):
Funny, right? It’s as if the horse was wondering where this creek had been his whole life! We bet the rider didn’t sign up to be front row in the splash zone, but she’s likely quite please to have a horse who is willing to get in the water now.
What funny ways has your horse taken to a new environment? We want to hear your stories in the comments!
Go Dubarry, and Go Riding.
