Im neighbours with the rocky mountains, first thing I was taught was how to deal with a cougar,LOL.
Unless the horse freaks and starts running away, stand your ground and tell the cougar to get, haha, just act aggressive like your looking for a fight to win. I promise you, if your on your horse and you see a cougar, he's not going to eat you. Cougars don't like to fight, so they wait up in trees for prey to pass under, then they pounce and snap it's neck... If it's hunting you, you won't see it until it has already ontop of you. If you see it you shouldn't have any problems with it. Unless you surprise it, but I doubt you would do that if your on a horse, horses are to loud. :)
