    Will someone explain how exactly, you go about arresting a horse?

    Default huh?

    "I'm with slc, i don't get all this hate and bashing and just plain ugliness towards other people. I am so sick of it everywhere, not just with horses."

    where did you see this on this thread?

    is it hateful to note that someone's horse bolted?

    i don't get it. i think you are reading somthing into some of the comments that isn't there. at all.

    I'm waiting for the replay on Cops...especially the 'perp trot-out'.

    What's the 'pony paddy wagon' look like? Dream Coach?

    But seriously, relax, he/she is just a horse they all act up. They're animals. If all those horses were always controllable, they wouldn't need the horse cops there.

    You are just saying that to help the international coverup.

    Truth is, Salinero was on his way to make a score....my sources tell me he was to meet a wellknown dealer in the area, wether to purchase Karotten or Zucker....

    rumor has it salinero is hangin' with low friends in low places. rumor has it that in the lockup, he was seen conversing with a zebra.

    Gee I didn't realize he had gotten in trouble. I was thinking that it was a thread about new kur music that he would be performing too.

    Oh, how the mighty fall. But let that be a lesson to other horses. You do the crime, you're gonna do the time.

    that's the police horse's job. to be there any time 'bumper cars' are needed. and gee, why would they be there all the time? BECAUSE - because it happens all the time. and it was during the award ceremony, when even some AMERICAN horses have taken off - oh my my my.

    what WILL we find to gossip about TODAY?

    Default wow

    salinero actually looks beautiful in that picture...and she is sitting well. when a horse bolts, many of us tend to tense up and grab at the reins, she's not doing that in this pic...

    "At the press conference she said "Salinero really got scared in the prize giving and I did as well. I did the fastest trip today," she joked. "

    nice to see that anky has a better sense of humor than some of her slavish devotees...

    actually he looks fabulous, and frankly, i like that she didn't yank the crap out of him and set him down or cowboy him. something really startled him. balkenhol had the same thing with goldstern.

    Actually the one rein stop saved my ass on Saturday. I started out my lesson in a sweatshirt and felt like I had to take it off after we got warmed up. I asked my coach to hold my horse's rein while I took it off. It went OK until I pulled it over my helmet and my horse panicked for some reason. He leaped up and sideways and my coach lost the rein. He started to take off with me and my instinct was to pull his head to the right into the one rein stop he's been taught. He imediately gave to the bit and doubled around and stopped. He was anxious about the "monster" he saw come over my head but he settled down once I got him stopped. Without that one rein stop I would have been run off with, out of control and probably dumped.

    Pulling straight back on a bolting terrified horse really doesn't help much curb bit or not....and it can happen to anyone regardless of how well trained their horse is or how good a rider they are. Horses panic sometimes...it is their nature.

    Those "cowboy" tricks can be very useful. No harm in them and they can really save you from a bad wreck.

    i'm glad no one was hurt - that's the important thing.

    but one question - why do such high calibre horses need bumper cars? i know i'm only a lowly foxhunter - but runaways are NEVER tolerated in the hunt field - and neither is using other horses as bumper cars. and when i evented this was NOT done either.

    i realize the dynamic is different of course - nothing like a few thousand screaming fans to get a horses blood up.

    on the other hand - being in a field of 80+ extremely fit horses on a cold frosty morning - hounds are screaming - horn blowing, and we're at a hard gallop in a huge hayfield surrounded by deer hunters shooting at deer.

    and the horses blood is up too - and all their herd instincts are at a peak. and most certainly they are not as beautifully trained as an olympic level horse. and yet - butter wouldn't melt in their mouth - even the crazy thoroughbreds (green horses excepted)

    i'm not picking on anky - i would have asked this question regardless of the rider. regardless of training or discipline - runaways happen for all sorts of reasons. but i am suprised, given the level and exquisite training, that this issue would be common enough to warrant polices horses being stationed to stop runaways.

    JSwan...I will say that I am shocked to hear that she screamed for help and ran into other horses. That is very dangerous and I remember one of the worst wrecks I ever saw years ago in an eventing warmup ring where a horse ran away out of control and crashed into another horse. The horse that got run into had to be destroyed and both riders were injured. I'm glad no one was hurt in this instance.

    What was so funny about my incident Saturday was that I had friends there watching my lesson and I had just discussed the one rein stop with them as they have a horse that is bolting. They got a great demonstration that I never planned! Later, I showed them how to teach it first from the ground so the horse learns to give to the rein and later how to confirm it under saddle.
