What Should You NEVER, EVER Do When Handling Horses?
I know there's a lot of "first time horse owner/handler" advice threads. But I wanted to kind of spin off on that :) After reading another thread today about a lady who had an accident after riding on a paved road, it made me think... what if I had never known that?! It makes sense now that someone pointed it out to me, but before this morning, horses + paved roads never really made it's way into my thought process!
So, what's the ONE piece of advice you have that new horsey people should NEVER, ever do?! If I could compile a list of 10 Commandments of Horse Handling-- what would you insist make the top 10?
Specifically for newish horsey people on these boards?
The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit, and fire. ~Sharon Ralls Lemon
