    They forgot the helmets!!!
    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

    it makes me think about horses getting clonked in head by rioters. Glad they have some protection, though.

    I wonder if they will get bullet proof vests like the dogs. Probably too big to be remotely affordable.

    I would incorporate a light steel cable or chain into one set of reins to prevent them from being cut.
    My horse is a "Hare-Brained Controvert".

    but would danger of unbreakable rein outweigh danger of cut reins? I would def. think so. I'd rather be on a well trained horse without reins than garroted by them...or have horse break leg in one, etc
