It's....because it's a way of life and its always going to be there no matter what. I see horses in a field and when I'm not riding I'm always thinking about in one way or another. I've had several horse related injuries so I'm careful, I always wear my hat, rarely go out with a body protector on even if it's just for support since I have a bad back due breaking my shoulder and ripping the muscles thanks to a bucker. I always wear boots because I've had my foot broken twice and nearly ended up in plaster. I don't ride just after it's rained or raining nor do I ride when it's icey or really sunny due to the higher risks involved riding at that time. I've been bitten, kicked, trodden on, reared on, bucked with, bolted with and I'd never give it up. The lonest break I've had was a year due to breaking shoulder and then I got back into horses now I'm going to be getting my own in a few months.
Can I just ask why you've got two colts if you find it too dangerous? I assume you're going to drive with them instead?
