Word of the Day: Bombproof Horse

Bomb Proof- more currently known as a "husband proof" horse.  This is a false description of a horse known for its calm, quiet, unflappable manner that makes people feel secure in permitting inexperienced riders to mount up; typically these horses are very confident in controlling familiar situations but can become extremely hard to manage in new and unfamiliar situations rather than being available to receive help and support from the rider.  These horses are the ultimate example of a Patternized animal.
