Open Thread: Horses

Hosted by a black horse

I got to play with horsies yesterday!!

Technically, I was trained to be ground crew for SCA equestrian events - which basically just means running around and making sure everyone's safe and taken care of, the games are set up properly, and the riders have the equipment they need.  But!  Horsies!

(The SCA, for liability reasons, cannot give riding lessons.  However, if you show up to an equestrian practice and show willingness to work, you're going to make friends with people who own horses who may be willing to teach you on their own time... so, y'know, I'm kinda excited!)

Open thread!  What are your thoughts on horses?  Does anyone ride or own horses?  Has anyone had any good or bad experiences with them?

Monday Reminder!  While I have fun coming up with pretty pictures and/or interesting “prompt” questions for open threads, you aren’t limited to those!  These threads are open - go wild, talk about whatever moves you!  (Just remember that this is still a safe space, please!)  

And, like on all threads: please remember to use the "post new comment" feature rather than the "reply" feature, even when directly replying to someone else!
