Tuesday’s Top 10 – Reasons to be grateful that horses do NOT act like dogs

10. Your horse would yelp every time it hit a rail in show jumping

9. Trying to handle a stallion that kept attempting to hump your leg would be terrifying.

8. Your paddocks would be filled with fresh dug holes and likely dozens of carrots buried in them.

7. Visualize cleaning up horse puke…

6. Your mount would growl at you every time you tapped it with your whip.

 

 

5. Listening to your horse pant on cross-country would get annoying.

4. Trying to ride a horse at a show would be challenging when every time it passed a poo pile, it would stop and piss on it.

3. A horse jumping up to greet you would certainly be a disaster.

2. Imagine the noise in the barn when you left the horses for the evening and they started to wail with separation anxiety.

1. If your horse knew its name when it was called, imagine the reaction while you were in the ring and one of your rivals said, “Come get a treat Black Beauty”!
