Then BAM...you're kicked, bit, bucked off or reared up on. That spring time devil horse brain goes into overdrive and you may get hurt or worse.
The news is full of horse related injury's and deaths this time of year. A woman was killed last week near here (I didn't know her). Her horse bucked her off, that's all I know. It got me thinking about all of you, so I figured I would put a bug in your ears about keeping safe this spring.
Please remember my words when you stick your foot in the stirrup. Be aware, prepared and on guard. Have a plan in the back of your mind what you will do in each scenario ie buck, rear etc.
I want to see you all coming to the forum safe and healthy
Happy spring to you all!
