Q. Do you believe in such a thing as 'accident-prone' horses or is it more 'accident-prone' humans?
The "accident prone" horses and humans are the horses and humans who are too nervous, too distracted, or too dead to be able to pay attention to their surroundings. Horses naturally pay attention to their surroundings, but when they are any of these three things, they tend to not be able to so well. People say that "Arabians are so accident prone" and that Thoroughbreds are as well - but this is not because they truly are accident prone. No, this is because people make these horses so nervous by taking their independence and forcing them into things that they are forced into being on edge all the time. These horses become so nervous that they don't judge the severity or the depth of their surroundings accurately.
