Riding/working with horses is a bad idea when it is windy. Horses always get a little stupid and jittery when it's like that. Heck, I get sort of stupid and jittery when it's windy out. Just like if someone had a class outside, they wouldn't want to listen to their teacher. They'd be worried more about the wind.

Most horses act up in the wind, my horse acts like a bird when it's too windy. I know people who can't even mount up when it's windy because it's just not safe. Talk to the guy with horse knowledge, and if it's really windy try maybe just hand walking him or letting him run around in a paddock.

We've used snapples ( think that's what they're called) But the best one so far that really agrees with him is the hackamore. This is also what my neighbor uses. (Different neighbor) We just free ride and a little western so the hackamore works fine

To ride or not to ride? What a stupid question!
