Thought, fact and quote for the day 6/10/12

Quote 4the day: Take note of the small things before they turn into big things..
Fact 4the day: Horses are trained and ridden for practical working purposes such as in police work or for controlling herd animals on a ranch. They are also used in competitive sports including, but not limited to, dressage, endurance riding, eventing, reining, show jumping, tent pegging, vaulting, polo, horse racing, driving, and rodeo. Some popular forms of competition are grouped together at h...orse shows, where horses perform in a wide variety of disciplines. Horses (and other equids such as mules and donkeys) are used for non-competitive recreational riding such as fox hunting, trail riding or hacking. There is public access to horse trails in almost every part of the world; many parks, ranches, and public stables offer both guided and independent riding. Horses are also used for therapeutic purposes, both in specialized paraequestrian competition as well as non-competitive riding to improve human health and emotional development.

Horses are also driven in harness racing, at horse shows and in other types of exhibition, historical reenactment or ceremony, often pulling carriages. In some parts of the world, they are still used for practical purposes such as farming.

Horses continue to be used in public service: in traditional ceremonies (parades, funerals), police and volunteer mounted patrols, and for mounted search and rescue.

And yet so much more!! Friends being one :o)
Thought 4the day: Some horses fair better out all year round others fair better being stabled at night and some are exceptions to the rule and spend alot of time in and only out for a few hours at their own request. All horses are different and unique and in different situations or yards they might change a little. Yards vibes can be everything.. what does your four legged friend prefer?
