OMG, my now 4yo Abba, used to do the very same (without jumping out thank God) when the bikers came by. She just used to canter along with them bucking and I thought she was just plain weird. Thankfully she has some common sense because her fencing was post and rail, a huge hedge, and a ditch next to the road. But she loved those crazy bikers and their colorful outfits!
COTH, keeping popcorn growers in business for years.

Omg, I just laughed so hard I cried. I'm SO glad I wasn't riding that horse when he did that..
"OMG THERE'S AN EMERGENCY SOMEWHERE EVERYONE'S RUNNING!!!! WHERE ARE WE GOING?!"
LOL. I can imagine the fear in those bicyclists heart having that horse stampeding right behind them like a crazed lunatic.. Wonder how they got him stopped? Hopefully he didn't seriously injure his legs slamming down on the pavement like that for so long. Looks like a nice (albeit a little psycho) horse, they could have stopped everyone for a second so he'd stop running but I highly doubt they would have done that.
Oh...that one wasn't running away from anything with those ears-just revealing how much TB is actually in those WB lines. Sucker was racing them-won too.
Exactly my THOUGHT!!!!! Definitely not running away.. more like proudly taking the lead!!! amazing footing over that bridge... OMG... I honestly clicked on this thread expecting something serious!!! LOL

Not the jumper ring - he is too independent - maybe eventing? Or better suited for steeple chasing. Quite the solid fellow. And really sound... I wonder if he has special shoes - since he is not slipping on the concrete!

I want George to have this conversation with my horses!!
