            “ What you don't see in the video was the temper tantrum he pitched in the beginning, or the fact that his his buddy just finished their run and was heading back up to the barn, how windy it was, or the fact that the reigns on the left side were open. I clearly came up too high and tight on the right when closing that side off, but had he given into the circling that was meant to happen until he was ready to finally move forward into the ring then we could have avoided all that. Sorry to disappoint, still alive, no wheel chair, not even any broken bones, just some gnarly bruising. And we still hit up the trails a few weeks later, there were no hard feelings, just some good lessons.”

        I almost died thanks to a horse at the age of 9. I was on a hunt with grandpa. Was on multiple hunts startin from the age of 7. Not as a hunter, but as an obserber. Helped in building feeding stations for animals in winter. Deliver food there once a while. And as a reward i could go see how a hunt looked. Was on multiple hunts (once every 2 months). Hunts in Poland look like this. Group of hunters gather, go hunt in a designated area. Usually they had small car, to transport the hunted animals. On that one hunt, the animals were put on a wagon. Which was pulled by a horse. It was the 3rd time i was in that place (local farmer, who transported dead animals for the hunters, did it with this horse wagon - sth like an american settler wagon, just no sheets.). Was already twice on it. Horse was used to gunshots. Was on this wagon for the 3rd time that day. The farmer jumped of the wagon to help toss a boar on the wagon. In a few seconds another hunter, turned 180, placed his rifle like 50 cm under the horses face. And fired. Horse went fucking haywire. With fucking me alone on it. Till this day i do not know, how in God's name, did i manage to jump down on my knees, grab the reins, and managed to stop him like 200 m. before the end of the road. I have a vague memory of it. But i do remeber it. Grandpa does remeber it clearly. He almost shat himself, cause i could literally die that day.

        As shockingly stupid that is, this exact mindset would be exactly what I expect of Russian leadership. They'd field untrained, sickly horses, with little or no equipment and expect Conscriptovich to somehow learn a craft that's been lost for going on a century overnight. I fucking love it, and I hope this isn't bullshit propaganda. Which I think it is, because even for vatniks this is some of the most obscenely stupid shit I have ever heard in my life. It's up there with seeing reports Russian leadership is debating sending soldiers into the field with cuirasses lifted from some museum.

        Did you learn that in vidya along with now guns shoot? Generation useless stupid cunt right there. Its fucking hard to learn to ride a horse well and takes years to train a horse for gunfire. If the Russians send horses there this winter they will be dead by spring because horses will not survive the winter without the right care and stabling. Cavalrymen were elite, trained as elite infantry and then trained to acre for their horse, even carrying spare house shoes. It would take years to train cavalry and for what? To die in a drone strike. If this is true its just because the satanist in the kremlin wants to add the sound of screaming horses to the rape and murder and death in mud he has created

        You are right anon, I have gone to pull horses out of mud that had become stuck and exhausted and collapsed. For lots of reasons horses are the last thing you want in the hands of people who don't know how to care for them without fodder or vets in the war in Ukraine. Its insane. If the Russians do this it is actual insanity. I can ride and care for horses buts that because I was born to it. Even then a horse is the last thing I would want in that war with me.

      They could be trying to organize dragoon type formations, which travel by horseback and then dismount and leave their horses behind in nearby cover to fight. It would provide a big mobility boost to an otherwise bare infantry unit, the downside being you need to train all those soldiers to ride semi-competently and you leave 1/3-1/5 of your troops behind to hold and manage the horses every time you fight.

      I also don't think horses would provide nearly the mobility advantage in this circumstance that they did historically because the Ukrainian countryside has been sprinkled with mines like a very Hispanicy cupcake, and buttercup isn't going to be able to recover from stepping on a butterfly mine nearly as well as an APC or even a civilian van.

              Yeah, its a common misconception just how motorized ww2 was. Especially during the early days.

They were especially common with pulling artillery and carts full of munitions/supplies.

            Germans actually used horses extensively. In fact, they were not fully motorized - and never were throughout the war. The whole "mechanized German blitzkrieg against Polish cavalry charges" was a complete propaganda meme on both sides, especially for the Allies who used it to cover up their own utter failure to explain why Poland fell so quickly.

            And, to be fair to the Germans, this makes total sense when you look at their industrial constraints. At no point could they have ever fully mechanized, and used horses for logistical purposes in order to avoid competition with their offensive motorized units.

            One of the reasons why Germany lost the war is they used horses and every other nation mechanised their shit. When your supply convoy is outstripped because it isn't mechanised, you're fucked. Why did the Germans do this, you ask? Because they didn't have enough gas. The plan was always to take the oil from the British in the Middle East and in Ukraine/Russia, but lots of stuff happened which prevented that, including Hitler splitting up forces and trying to have his cake and eating it and then getting into an autistic fight at Stalingrad, the Bongs beating the Germans out of Africa (and a major contribution was lack of fuel).

        You can't just feed an actively working horse off the land in a war zone. Even centuries ago armies would secure a logistics train for fodder instead of grazing, because otherwise the horses had to be out grazing 80% of the time and engaged in useful work 20% of the time.

          >An average horse on pasture 24 hours a day will graze for about 16 hours, meaning that they can consume 16-32 lb (7-15 kg) of pasture. This is equivalent to 1.6-3.2% of body weight per day for an average 1,000-lb (450-kg) horse,” said Kathleen Crandell, Ph. D., a Kentucky Equine Research nutritionist

          Only certain horse breeds can live off of just grass and apparently that is not one of them.
          That was one of the advantages that Mongol horsemen had over everyone else, their horses could work all day and thrive on just grass.

            What they ACTUALLY had was a system where nine horses were out grazing while one worked. The 80/20 ratio mentioned in

            You can't just feed an actively working horse off the land in a war zone. Even centuries ago armies would secure a logistics train for fodder instead of grazing, because otherwise the horses had to be out grazing 80% of the time and engaged in useful work 20% of the time.

            is generous.

            Whole concept is incomprehensable for me. Horseback charges are out of the question. Takes a few shots and those horses scatter or drop their riders. Besides. What would they be armed with. Ak's?? Yea i imagine how would that work out against a dug in enemy. Lance charges, pretty good in the field, rather disappointing against trenches, building's or ifv's. So no horseback fighting. What than?. They make a camp 5 km away??. And tie horses to trees??. It's a 5 min fun for the local artillery units. So they can't be mobile, and they do not have a possibility to make a camp anywhere close to enemy lines. This can't work on so many lvl's...

        I don't know if SOF ever had any formal training with horses, but I do know at least some of them did a decent amount of riding in their spare time. Growing up in the 90s I had a friend whose dad was with 5th SF, though he never discussed anything with me of course.
        But he and his 'friends' who were obviously in the same line of work seemed to go riding pretty regularly, and I was invited to come along with them and his son once or twice.

          Horses have an innate bolting instinct, unlike donkeys or mules, whose zebra blood inclines them more to violence than mindless running. See donkeys routinely murdering coyotes on various farmsteads throughout the Midwest.
          Horses can run farther, faster, and for longer than donkeys/mules, and this has steered their instincts toward an extremely strong flight response. It takes a huge amount of effort to break them out of it.

    It could work if they were provided with anti armor weapons. That's how the Polish cavalry operated in WW2 and they did pretty well. What I would do is recruit a bunch of steppe people from Yakutia or somewhere, put them on steppe horses, give em a bunch of anti armor, and let em go at it. Of course, that makes sense so I know they won't do that.

            I get what you are saying and I guess we would need to read the actual documents but I have to imagine the idea is that you can't fire AT on non-armored targets and unless the Russians are gonna bring back barding as well, I think you'll have a hard time making that one stick.

              as far as i'm aware there's no law or rule anywhere against using antitank weapons against infantry, other than a prohibition against using exploding bullets against infantry in some treaty or another and the fact that it's generally a waste because antitank weapons are specialized and expensive and usually aren't very good at it, like in all those ATGM vs foot patrol videos from syria where everyone except the poor guy who gets hit is more or less fine.

                weren't war horses specifically bred to not freak out at noise of explosions and gun fire? you can't just press some regular tamed horse into battle with out it panicking and spooked at the first loud noises.

                Yes. An untrained horse will unironically freak out from a potatoe chip bag rolling around on the ground from the wind (not an exaggeration). This isn't just a stupid idea, I legitimately cannot fathom how they could even attempt it.

    Also, I'm willing to bet my left nut that the Russians aren't going to give their horses proper battlefield training. I am eagerly looking forward to the first reports of 100 horses bolting after hearing an artillery shell go off and stampeding through the streets of some random town.

    Horses (that is, properly bred and trained warhorses) used to be one of the most expensive pieces of equipment an army had. They're only "cheap" in comparison to modern vehicles and even then by not as much as most people would think.

        Canada, Britain (though most of their really high end horses come from Canada), and I think France and Spain could also be added to that list. Maybe certain parts of South America. These are all fairly small units used mostly for ceremonial purposes though as far as I know.

        I don't thin any of them would be too keen to go to Russia to train Vatniks and sell their precious remaining horseflesh to them to be eaten by Boris after two weeks when his unit doesn't get resupplied.

          Most of those that still use horses do not maintain destrier lineages and thus would be unsuitable for reactivation. Humorously, the UKs are little more good than police breeds BUT in the civilian population they have a great many used for medieval reenactment which could probably be a somewhat adequate stand-in with a bit of training. France I think also has some of this but I don't know enough to say to what extent.

        No they just need skilled riders who can perform day-to-day care, feed and hay, water, frequent veterinary care, and their hooves have to be cleaned, trimmed, and shod by trained cobblers. Without those things they'll be essentially useless. That's on top of all the training each horse and rider is going to require in the first place.
        People who have never been around horses have no idea how much work they are. There's a reason we use cars now.
        I would also add that it's far quicker to replace a truck than it is to replace a horse, and in the modern day battlefield you don't just have to worry about horses dying during combat or of illness, you have to worry about them being hit with a goddamn artillery shell while picketed 10 miles behind the front line.

          The gas they're referring to with that is natural gas, not gasoline. Like vapor that you could inhale by mistake, not diesel or ethanol.
          Russians are still retarded and poor at the end of the day, but the oligarchs do control some vital infrastructure to Europe, and it's used solely to line their own pockets. Regardless, someone ought to actually find a solution for Europe's energy crisis rather than remain in denial as to what the rest of the world means by gas. As it stands, the EU is helping Russia by trying to weaken Europe and make them more dependent on Russian resources. First it was the farms in the Netherlands being seized by the government so they can pave over them, now they're dismantling their own domestic energy sources like nuclear plants so that they become even more dependent on Russian gas.
          The EU are fucking traitors and its leaders need to be lined up and shot, they're actively sabotaging the war effort and trying to strengthen our enemies.

    I mean, if you're smart about it, maybe. The key is to use the horse like you would a humvee, as a battlefield mobility tool, rather than something you expose to gunfire. The problem is that almost any motor vehicle does that job better, because it carries more men and more gear at a higher speed than a horse. Unless you're moving through seriously fucked-up terrain like rocky mountain passes, even a 4-door sedan is going to outperform a horse.

    I think its a false flag. Russians are rounding up all the horses they can...so that they can ship them to Mongolia in exchange for their cooperation to get back conscript age males that fled there.

    can a javelin lock on to a horseman?

      A horse would have a massive IR signature but horses are useless because shrapnel, artillery, mines, mud. You can't use them for logistics either because well...you actually need the horse carts and harnesses and people very experienced in it and the horses trained for it. There is no military reason to do this. I'm guessing Russia is short of red meat

    If this is true it is nothing to do with winning that war or even its administration, its to do with taking the horses off rural people. Why? No idea but nothing else makes sense. To get red meat from them for the Russian public?

      There is no possibility of satire when it comes to Russian incompetence.

      You know what the difference was? They were Mongolians, so they knew how to ride, how to feed and how to care for their animals. Russians will shoot and eat those horses that are not meant to be in the field.
      I had no issues with russian people being conscripted, but innocent horses? That's it, all russians must be genocided.

    kek, regular horses can panic if you just look at them wrong, imagine what the sounds and living conditions of war would do to farm horses

    They will obviously be used as dragoons, dismounting and moving to the enemy before engaging. For a lack of better words.

    Ok, so organic horses are not that great, but what about machine horses?
