Informative and a little scary. Thanks for posting!

Very good read!

Lunging a horse on a 4-wheeler?!
I see scary fences all over - a lot of them are in member photos. This guy has good advice - I hope people take a moment and read up.

Very well-written piece. Quite heartbreaking, though.

Great advice.

Thanks for posting, that was definitely worth taking the time to read.

You are never better than anyone. Every rider has skills they need to improve. The only one you must compare yourself with, is you.

Very scary.

I read this site when the link was posted on another forum. Good read. He sounds like a wonderful man. I wish his service was offered in more places.
