“We don’t have tack for that,” presented by ThinLine by Wylie, published Dec. 3, 2013:
Every real horse person knows you shouldn’t…
Top: Leave your horse untied in the middle of the barn aisle while you stand around looking pensive.
Carry your purse while riding.
Just stand there while an angry horse rears behind your back.
Mount from the right side, in a skirt.
Kneel between your horse’s front legs.
Sit around on the tractor in stilettos. Fields ain’t gonna bushhog themselves!
Try to ride in mittens, get frustrated because you can’t hold the reins, and just give up.
Leave your tack in a tangled heap on the floor.
Let your horse graze with its bridle on.
Seriously, the horse is going to step on the reins. You’re not even paying attention.
Wear a miniature saddle on your butt.
Wear open front boots on your legs.
Walk out to the field to catch your horse with a lasso.
Go looking for your horse in the field at night wearing sunglasses and a little black dress.
Camp out on a lawn chair right beside your horse’s hind legs.
Cover your horse in a quilt for no apparent reason.
Not notice that a riderless horse is jumping a fence two feet away from you.
