You’ve heard it before and I like to preach to the choir so here it is again, your horse’s legs are SO important and are SO important to take care of!! By riding, we are asking them to do things that is very unnatural for them so for that reason we need to take precautions and protect them the best we can. Unfortunately, you haven’t seen a three-legged horse running majestically through an open field like dogs can. This is why we must protect their legs while riding. Not only to prevent sprains and strains, but also bumps, bruises, scrapes and scratches.
