Horses are half ton beings with minds of their own. Even the most well-trained horse may make a mistake and people can get hurt. The barn is no place for complacency.
For as long as I can remember I have dreamed about rescuing and rehabbing animals. My friend recently took on a couple of rescued geldings and has enlisted my help in doing groundwork with them.
Make sure you know what you want out of horseback riding lessons so you can find the right instructor.
Horses that react need direction. Most of their energy can be channeled into productive use with the right handling.
