Horses evading humans might seem like a funny plot for the Keystone Cops, but it’s actually serious business. We have all experienced horses getting away from us. It’s never expected, they are supposed to dutifully walk alongside us, right? Don’t count on it.
We can never be too careful leading a horse, particularly a horse we don’t know. With an unfamiliar horse, you need to be extra careful – for your safety and theirs. WARHorses’ #1 advice – check that all exit gates are closed and secured, so a loose horse can’t get off the property. Do this one thing and your runaway situation can be nullified quickly.
Fortunately, Lightning and Nutmeg’s week on the run ended safely. Don’t let your horse be the next to headline local news.
