Back when I rode a lot, I rode a horse who would only learn about things one eye at a time -- he's pass the flapping sheet on the left side and shy and shy until he got used to it, then low-and-behold, he had to learn to pass it on the right as well. Left eye thought it was ok, but right eye was NOT SO SURE!
They can be really funny that way. I rode a horse for a while who was functionally blind. He saw shadow and light, but nothing really concrete. He was a great ride, you just had to be more attentive in terms of guidance. He only spooked at the telephone pole. And that was just a step to the left..

Funny that it was a telephone pole that got him riled up.
