    My own cousin sometimes comes around when I'm preparing for a show. He knows what is safe and what isn't.

    Some other kids sadly don't.

    Yep. Some don't. I just heard of a story of a kid getting kicked in the face. The kid was in the pasture by himself (the parents knew apparently). He squirted the horse on the rear with a water gun, and it kicked him in the face. Messed his face up pretty bad. I think he was 8 (though I'm not exactly sure) What kind of parents let their kids out in a pasture by themselves full of horses is beyond me.

    Just saw this post, and had to comment.....my horse is an 18month old gelding, great ground manners, and a great head on him! Don't get me wrong...he has his moments!!

    But I was exceptionally proud of him yesterday....a woman brought her 4-5 year old daughter to the barn yesterday. I forgot my phone, and wanted to take pictures of Rodeo, so I brought with me to get my camera in my car. As I was walking towards the parking lot, the little girl came bolting around the car wagging her hands, and screaming. Rodeo didnt even bat an eye!!!

    LOL....I was expecting him to react, and he could have cared less. They then went onto the little slide, and swings, and we had to walk past that to get to the pasture, again I was expecting a blow out, and once again, Rodeo could have cared less :)

    Ground work, and desensitizing....and yes even kids(at times) really does pay off!!!

    My 9 year old nephew came out to visit the farm and to ride horses for his first ride. I was explaining to him that he needed to show good manners around the horses, being quiet, and not waving his arms around and jumping and screaming. He said, "Oh, that's how I have to act around my Uncle Zach."

    In some cases - The parents are the one who need the education. If those who are role models to the children show stupidity or act unsafe. The children will only follow. Of course, I am not saying they are bad parents I am just saying that as parents it is their 'job' to make sure their children are safe.

    There are accidents and then there are mistakes. Mistakes can be more easily prevented. Specially with horses, who are unpredictable and large animals.
