Sometimes you’ve just got to wonder what the heck is running though your horse’s head. This video hazards a guess and this hilarious voiceover seems like it could be pretty darn accurate!

British dressage rider Jess Roisin Dunn recounts this ride, which took place about two and half years ago at the Hartpury Festival of Dressage Premier League, by saying “I feel like that day will be engrained in my memory forever! [The horse’s] owner had driven the three hours to come watch. He had never been bothered by flowers up until that day. Unfortunately … he’s had a problem with flowers ever since! He was obviously hugely offended by the wispy ones 🤣🤣

When asked is she has any advice for riding through such moments, Jess told EN: “Mostly try to ignore it! I won’t ever win that battle with him so lots of big pats and scratches seems to lessen the reaction but not eradicate it!”

Thanks for sharing, Jess!
