While being pursued by Boris and Natasha Badenuv, you gallop your horse up to the edge of a huuuuuuuuuge cliff... there are only seconds left to stop dear Dobbin or you and he will be hurtling into the abyss?

Did you know that if you say the word "GULLIBLE" really softly, it sounds like "ORANGES"?
Thank you,, I saw this today and was taken aback....Not my trainer but another one in my barn.... of course no helmet was worn....this person has issues with jumping to conclusions and flying off the handle...I am not sure how to quietly make the barn owner aware of this situation
Mmmm... I had a horse that would try to lead his shoulder to the gate in an arena, basically try to blow through my outside leg by keeping the bend but dropping his outside shoulder and heading that way. I nailed him with the backside of my booted (no spur) heel on that shoulder maybe twice before he got it? I *think* I used an inside leading rein at the time, not sure but no, ganking on the mouth really doesn't fix much.

Most unhorsemanlike. You may have to have the moral courage to speak to the person directly, in a polite way, ya know, especially if they have a temper on a horse.
I've several times gone up to kids at shows and spoken to them if they are showing temper - but there there is the heavier hammer of the coach or steward if needed. I'm always nice, because I know what show nerves are like especially for young people and they just have to learn.
