Equestrian events are hazardous. Not only for the professionals who manage the horses and equipment but even for the viewers. And we have seen a lot of videos going around the internet of how horses lose their cool and start acting aggressively.
We have seen horses going ravage in a bar. Horses are going out of their way in the streets. Although those things are nothing more than accidents, they happen, and you can be part of one.
You have no reason to be distanced from your favorite event or animal just because a random writer on a horse page told you so. I even doubt you will do that.
The whole idea of mine to get you alarmed toward those events is not to distance you. On the contrary, horses are one of the planet’s most lovely and loyal animals. But to have you take some signs into account when watching those events.
This video shows what we need to understand the gender of the horses in those events, especially if you will be sitting near the horse.
This video shows a trainer training an untrained horse to do what is asked. And the differences before and after exercise.
Did you notice when the video first started, the horse was undisciplined, nervous, and unknowledgeable of the training process? In addition, he was behaving nasty, getting his horseshoes out of the ground.
But watching the “after” part of the video, we see how much that horse has been trained. How much has been improved, and now the horse can follow the signals of the trainer? Splendid work done by the trainer. Splendid.
But on another note, do you think the horse can be sent to an overpopulated event just because the horse can follow the trainer’s orders and signals? That’s the mistake most people do. They ignore such facts just because of enjoyment. And so accidents happen, and people get injured.

I’m not over-calculative, and I never try to lose the chance to getting fun, but being a bit cautious doesn’t hurt anyone.
