I just love the Australian landscape in spring, even more so when I’m out galloping cross country :)

haven’t really edited in b&w before but I like it

Horse people on Facebook are the most bullheaded, ignorant people ever

Like seriously. How far do you have to stick your head in the sand before you can honestly say that kids aren’t commonly taught to kick the crap out of ponies

"It’s funny how beginners are so afraid of falling, while experienced riders have hardly any respect for falling at all. After a lifetime in this industry, anyone can tell you-the things you should be most afraid of in this sport are usually the people standing next to you."

I don’t understand how it’s seen as cruelty to kennel a dog all of the time or not let it out of the house, etc but it’s seen as acceptable for horses to be stalled 24/7 and when people do speak against it, they get torn apart with 1000 reasons on why it’s “okay”.

I want this written across my body 

The only time it’s okay is for injuries, breeding, OR harsh weather. 

16 hours a day minimum

"But my horse loses weight when I turn him out!" Then figure out what’s making him lose weight. He’s either nervous about something or is getting bullied by other horses or something along those lines. It’s your job as his owner to make sure he’s comfortable in his environment and tailor the diet you’re giving him to fit his routine. A healthy and content adult horse does not spend his time tearing around his pasture or playing with other horses. They spend their time grazing. Walking to a new spot, then grazing some more. Maybe lay down and take a nap. If he’s cold find a blanket that keeps him warm. Figure. It. Out.

"But she’s so accident prone!"

Also it’s then your job to make super sure there’s nothing for her to hurt herself on. Make sure your fences are well maintained. Make sure the ground is level (i.e. fill in holes and divots). Make sure trees are pruned. Make sure the footing of your pasture is good (i.e. block of super muddy areas, etc). Don’t leave a halter on her.

"But I ride him every day. He gets exercise." Ah, yes, sitting in his stall for 22 hours straight, getting about two hours of exercise, then sitting in his stall for another 22 hours. Such a healthy routine.

"But big show barns do it all the time!" Well big show barns are not always perfect. Plenty of big show barns do less than wonderful things to their horses, it does not mean it’s suddenly OK to do those things.

No excuses. If your horses is not injured, sick, or ready to foal, and the conditions of the turn out area are not horrendous, then your horse needs to be out in the pasture.

Bless you guys

The picture isn’t ruined because of the watermark. It’s fucking protected. So people don’t steal it and pretend it’s theirs.
