Know the Zone

Believe it or not, your horse can reach his hind leg forward almost all the way to his front leg. He can extend it fully to the side and back as well. So, cautions Certified Horsemanship Association clinician Julie Goodnight, if you’re leaning under your horse to grab a cinch, for example, face forward so your head isn’t in the “kick zone.” (See a video explaining the kick zone at HorseandRider.com.)
