    found that by accident....

    Not sure how a 'spooky nature' would help a horse though...

    Very Cool! I think when he was describing his spookiness in the beginning he meant that it was beneficial for a large, lanky horse to be so aware of where his body was at all times. Not so much spooky as just sensitive and not dull and clumsy.

    Well he explained exactly why it helps....because the horse is aware of their body, aware of their surroundings...the last thing you want is a dull horse out CC, recipe for disaster.

    Also, some riders do prefer less-confident horses, as if you can create a bond with them and get them checking in with you, then they will do almost anything for you as long as you tell them okay. Me, I prefer an asshole who says "yeah yeah, I've got this lady."

    interesting.
    My old TB gelding went to an eventing home...the guy sold him on because he was not as confident as he liked him to be.
