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..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!
