Blog Hop - What will you NOT do?

So Equestrian Journey has started this cool blog hop CLICK HERE about what we will not do with our horses, 'We all like to share on our blogs what we do with our horses and what we would like to do, but I want to know what you will NOT do.  For example I will not carry a bag of feed into the middle of a herd of horses, especially if I don't know some of them.  I will not teach my horse to rear on purpose.  I will not ride my horse into a field full of loose horses that could kick me in the leg and break it.  Things like that.  I look forward to hearing what you have to share!  I could probably think of more examples, but I need to go to sleep.  :)' 

So here is what I will not do with a horse (any horse not just mine). 

  • I would never teach a horse to rear on command, to me it's just really dangerous and something that I do not want to do. 
  • Unless I absolutely had to I would not keep my horse in a stable 24/7 (this would only happen for medical purposes where it is beneficial to the horse).
  • I would not ride without a helmet. Don't get me wrong if I was doing a fancy photo shoot I probably would get on without a helmet but that wouldn't really be riding to me. 
  • I would not put my horse in a situation that they are uncomfortable in, just because I want to do something doesn't mean I will do it, if the activity was going to cause pain to my horse then it is not worth it. My horses health and happiness comes first. (e.g. when Gatsby had a bad back his jumping was restricted and no cross country was done)
  • I would not put my happiness before my horses health. 
  • I would not keep my horse in an unsafe field or stable (e.g. barb wire for fencing). 
  • I will never eat horse, the idea just makes me feel so sick! 

There might be other things that I would not do but right now I can't think of them, if I do think of more in the future I will be sure to add them :). I'm not by any means begin judgemental on any of the people that do the above things these are just my own in opinions on what I would not be happy doing! 

Until Next Time
