    One of the 'splurges' I'm allowing myself this sabbatical year is a 15 lesson package of lessons. Equine therapy does me a load of good!

    Just got back from my re-rider lesson. After many years on trails. YOUR horse and you may be well trained, but that says nothing about the less trained riders, spooky other horses, and general...

    I agree, regular insurance probably covers ALL mobility challenged visitors who just want to watch other riders and occasionally pet a horse that someone else is holding. I, and I think most of us,...
