Woman lets horses out of stall – then gets kicked by energetic horse

Horses are simply fascinating creatures. I never owned one myself but I’ve long respected and admired them – their strength, resilience and patience.

But horses can also be volatile and unpredictable, aspects that I think make them even more fascinating.

Anyone who deals with horses know they must be managed and cared for carefully and properly in order to avoid ‘rubbing them the wrong way’.

In this video, which can be somewhat upsetting to some viewers, we see a woman working around a stable. But when she releases her horses from their stalls, she never could have expected one of them would do this.

The white horse seems particularly agitated and anxious to leave its stall.

When it finally emerges it runs around and promptly exits the stable. But it is soon seen reentering.. and that’s when something unexpected happens.

Thankfully no one was seriously injured in this video – but it definitely is a good reminder of horse’s natural volatility and strength.

What do you think? Why did the horse react this way? Was the woman at the wrong place at the wrong time, or was it on purpose? Share your comments on Facebook!
