While geldings are capable of such dispicable behavior, it happens less frequent and is why my motto for owning geldings is:

"blessed are the geldings for they are always even tempered".

Agree being "stabled"'together doesn't mean the mares know each other, unless they are in the same turnout.

I hope the rider who was hurt is still doing ok.

I've tried to type the "what would I have done" part several times --- none of it was PG worthy, even without the cuss words --------- once again I will say, I am not a breeder, I neither need nor want some fool mare that has her ill-mannered fat hind end in an 1,100 pound snit over nothing out on a trail ride--------------

A Good Horseman Doesn't Have To Tell Anyone; The Horse Already Knows.

I CAN'T ride 'em n slide 'em. I HAVE to lead 'em n feed 'em Thnx cowchick77.

this image of "picket hobbling" by @Smilie has me wondering . . . doesn't this put an undue amount of pressure on the free front leg? if one leg it tied up like this, the other must bear 60% of the horse's total weight!~! that's a lot.

in 'regular' hobbling, both front legs are weight bearing. seems this pictured way would not be good for any length of time :

That is not my image or method, so you will need to ask the person that posted that picture
I don't tie legs up.
When we picket by one front leg, it is per video I posted, except I Use a half hobble around one leg to attach the picket rope to, versus just a bow line knot
If we hobble, it is as you say, both legs. My comment was, if you do hobble, better have the other horse picketed, as horses can learn to travel very well with hobbles, in a bounding, leaping manner, and can quit camp about as fast as a horse without hobbles
I believe that picture was posted by Horseluver ?
The horse is also a Paint,not an App, so hardly one of my horses!

This is a picture I posted, when we still picketed horses off the halter, and over night. Learned not to do that, when we woke up one night after a blizzard, and found all the hroses gone, except one that I had tied close to our tent

Far as that picture, with the hobble holding one front leg up, never heard of doing so , except as a restraint method, like saddling a bronc, and never to picket a horse out.
