It is easy to escape into nature within the beautiful state of Adelaide in Australia. You will find a large number of people enjoying cycling and hiking throughout the countryside. However, one activity which is likely to be a lot more fun than the above is horse riding Adelaide. To find them, all you need to do is escape from the city’s traffic jams.
Horses aren't just a hobby, they are a lifestyle. Whatever it is that we do with them, they dominate our lives. Knowledge of our equine companions is passed down from generation to generation, with more knowledge added all the time. Sometimes, though, it's just fun to learn some equine trivia. Do you know all of the facts on our list?
This morning a misty drizzle was blowing across the New Forest. It never seemed to land anywhere as it swept relentlessly and horizontally across the countryside.
My friend is Crow. She invited me to help a Native family round up their cattle from the Little Big Horn on the Crow Reservation. On our trip out to Montana we noticed an unusual number of bears. When we arrived at our base camp, we were startled to find a cow with her head knocked half off by the single swat of a very large bear.

Being the young (and broke) professional I am, I take any new opportunity to work with horses. If the ranch/barn/farm is within a 40 minute drive, I'm in. This attitude has worked well to help fill my wallet (until the next vet bill or feed order or board payment is due anyway), but has put me in some pretty strange situations that have led to the occasional moral crisis. The truth of the matter is that most people don't hire me for my opinion, but simply to do the work they don't feel like putting in themselves. Normally, this situation works out fine for me as most horse owners I've encountered have treated their horses fairly as well as myself. However, there have been two recent situations where I was caught between the owner's expectation and the welfare of the horse. Now, here's the big question: what do you do? Walk away? Hold out and hope to make a difference? I can tell you which one is the easier option, but is it the best?
