I was on the little trolley that gets pulled by the horse on Main Street today, and we were trotting along nice and slow, when all of a sudden this little girl (maybe 10 years old) totally RUNS in FRONT of the horse because something of hers flew away. She literally had her head underneath the horses hoof. The horse was startled and immediatley stopped in it's tracks. I'm not even sure I saw the ride operator pull back the reins! There just wasn't any time! It seemed like the horse knew to stop immediatley when the little girl got too close, it was scary.
What was more scary?
The parents or grandparents or whoever was with her didn't say a thing.
They smiled and patted her on the back and chuckled.
The ride operator just sort of stood there for a minute and took a deep breath and then got the horse going again.
I'm sorry, but if that was my kid?
Holy moley, she'd be getting her EAR chewed off.
Anyway, kudos to the cast member and the horse!!!
