These responses from the horse usually cause the rider to become fearful and apprehensive about getting hurt.

Common Deficits in Safety Knowledge
There are many areas of concern in the equestrian world in terms of safety, but perhaps none so important and far reaching as that of the safety skills of riding instructors. Any deficit in the knowledge of safety rules and procedures on the part of the instructor has an exponential effect as students and clients continue to proceed with ill advised safety protocol in their interactions with horses.
