Avoid Tiger areas during breeding season first of all - All summer basically lol. This is generally wet areas - near ponds, dams and creeks. Don't jump any logs without checking the other side first, so you don't jump on top of one getting a bit of sun. Stick to worn trails where possible - fire breaks are awesome for this - to make sure you and your horse can see your footing.
The next thing I would do would be to carry a first aid kit with me at all times in summer. A good elasticated bandage is best for snake-bite. As well as that, a mobile phone tucked into your pocket can also be a huge advantage. Remember if you ever have to bandage a bite, start on the site of the punctures and wrap it firmly, but not tourniquet tight, and immobilise the bite area.
Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.
