I know the title made you read it again. That is exactly what I did and was compelled to read the article because like many of you, I was taught that a horse was another means of transportation for humans. So I had to ask the article (out loud) in Horse Network, “what do you mean horses aren’t designed to carry humans?”
The article is fascinating as it explains the health and scientific breakdown of everything and truthfully it makes perfect sense. But it is just funny how we are conditioned to believe something that can be totally wrong, only to find out what is true and what we should be doing. This is why we grow as a Pet Parent, as a Pet Community and do better with animals.
If you are a horse lover, rider or enthusiast, this is a great article that I had to share with you. Enjoy and know now that you will go forward educated and will treat your horse much better. Here is The Horse’s Body IS NOT Designed to Carry a Person by Rebecca Didier.
