Today I went to go riding on the beach. In the parking lot, just finished taking up my horse when a great dane came running up barking at my horse. He spooked reared and broke the clip on the lead line. He was off running away with the dog in chase barking at his heals.He try ed to kick the dog a few times but never connected. He then jumped a split rail fence and went racing away down the road with the dog still after him. The hole time I'm running along but falling further behind. Well, I flagged down a passing car hoped in and got up to the action. I grabbed my boy and got him under control. OMG my hart was racing..
My horse normally dose not have a problem with any dog even when there barking, but in the past week there was two other aggressive dogs that went after him. Now he is on high alert when he sees a dog.
So any tips or ideas on dealing with problem dogs?
I was thinking about riding with my 9mm on my hip but then I have to deal with the police for killing a dog.
