An Ounce of Prevention
Thirty million people ride horses every year. Some of them get hurt. Some even die.
Connected with every one of these numbers is a story. And while some accidents may be unavoidable; Sinclair Browning, co-author of Lyons on Horses, contends that the majority can be prevented with a little knowledge.
She spent years gathering stories from people throughout the country who had accidents with horses. Add her 50 years of horse experience and this is the result, a how to manual that everyone working around horses should have. Just the chapter on “Safe Trailering” is worth the price of the book, not to mention much less expensive than a visit to the Emergency Room.
“Sit in your most comfortable reading chair, with your feet propped up and have a vicarious wreck,” Browning says. "That way you don’t have to have the real thing."
Good advice indeed.
