Paramount in all farm plans, be they a small one-horse set-up or a large hundred-horse operation, is horse safety. We have all heard stories that lead up to the phrase "if there is something for a horse to hurt itself on, it will". Horses are amazing creatures in that their size and substance lead you to believe that somehow they should also be sturdy, stable and not easily damaged. But every horse owner knows that this is not necessarily true. Horses are also extremely curious, relatively thin skinned, and held together by tender tendons and ligaments. In addition, their evolution into domestication did not include their sensitive digestive tract. Blending the horse's need to accommodate his wild horse instincts of constant movement, grazing and flight from predators is frequently contradicted by our need to house them in stalls, control their turn-out and train them in an arena.
