I was sitting the camper at a horse show yesterday, watching the horses exit the arena after a class. A woman was walking a largish dog "in the vicinity" of the group of horse. I saw one of them looking at the dog, rider chatting about the class with her friend, when suddenly he teleported sideways. From a dog! On a leash! Who wasn't even looking is his direction!
I think sideways teleportation in some form is a standard install on all models. It just depends if you got the deluxe version that includes other fancy moves or the basic no frills model that just involves moving a measurable distance with no warning.
I got dumped by my greenie in the first month of owning him. No idea what he saw (birds in the trees?), but he did the sideways teleportation to the right. I didn't go with him, and was hanging off his left side for what felt like forever before hitting the ground. I walked back up to the barn with me covered in dirt, a broken whip (it broke when I hit the ground), and my horse looking like nothing happened. I've now learned to ride that sudden sideways movement.
The nice thing about riding bareback is that you can feel that spook coming. Fella's back flattens, and his ribs expand giving me about a half a second warning -which turns out to be enough. I can sort of feel it with my treeless saddle too, but definitely on my bareback pad.
He is total garbage! Quick! Hide him on my trailer (Petstorejunkie).
