    (I’m guessing my previous topic got deleted with the change of boards? I cannot find it).

    How do you guys feel about horseback riding? Some people feel it is unnecessary. But I am an avid horse rider (Western and Trail) and treat them as team members and partners. I highly respect any horse I ride.

    What do you guys think? :)

    Your passion towards horses shows that you must a very kind keeper. I don’t think so they must be feeling bad you riding on their back.!! God bless and keep up your spirit of kindness :)

    I believe horses and humans can have an amazing bond. I am an avid horse rider and at the ranch I ride at we practice natural horsemanship; or riding with your horse by telling them where you want to go with your body language, not by using any spurs, or other instruments. But, there are other types of horse riding that I believe is cruel cruel..

    Rachel-S took the words right outta my mouth. Well said.

    I’m fine with horse back riding. I love to do it. I know when a horse is treated well they enjoy being taken out for rides. I actually skipped my high school graduation to go horseback riding instead haha
    What I’m against isn’t horseback riding, but horse racing. That’s a cruel and ridiculous “sport”. Those horses are pushed to their limits cruelly by people who only care about money. And most are killed once they get too old to race or become injured. Thank goodness for race horse rescues.
