That horse should never have been put in that situation to start with! In that statement (bunch of excuses) she gave, she said it was windy that day and the horse was anxious and nervous and that he's just come to the property. Well for crying out loud, obviously he's going to have a hard time!? How stupid do you have to be to think otherwise! You don't just go and stick a nervous, sight impared, excited horse in the middle of a huge field (paddock, whatever it was), and expect it be perfect! The whole thing just drives me up the wall. That horse should have been allowed to settle for a few days. Then it needs to join up with you before you do any work with it. It's first outing should have been to the roung yard or a small paddock. Once the horse is with you, only then should it be taken out for it's first test. And that should only be a small test. Only once a horse is comfortable, relaxed and happy in a safe, controlled and quiet environment can you ask or expect it to be the same in a not-so-controlled one. Someone mentioned that this horse had prior problem before coming to Linda, like that's some sort of excuse for her appauling behaviour. No, that's more of a reason to take your time! And in fact, makes it worse that she put this horse in this situation. A horse that is scared, nervous or excited will never learn anything. And that poor horse was all those things. Very scared and very confused.
