Well my horse is a very good boy and doesn't seem to have really any issues other than just protesting when he's getting out of ear shot of his buddies but it's simply a field, usually gets hayed but this year it didn't. There is a flood light but I don't know if it hits the field enough to say so. The horses are being boarded at a family friend's house and they know when I've gone out riding and I have a check point text system with my fiance and some friends. They text me every 2 hours (depending on the ride) and I have 30 minutes to respond. If I don't respond they are not to call but simply call 911 for an ambulance, I'm pretty strict about it because I have fallen on the trail before with no one around. I always wear a helmet and if I rode it's only walk or a trot, he's hackney and a high stepper in the trot. :) I love it! So far it's a toss up though, some do and some don't.
