Two Florida Sport Horse Club members recently took a “Mounted Self-Defense” class from Mark of Suncoast Equine, Emerald Oaks Ranch in Webster, FL. It was eye-opening, and definitely worth the time and money. The attached document has some of the tips learned; an online video shows just a few of the things taught. http://www.horsenation.com/2015/03/31/mounted-self-defense-know-how-to-protect-yourself-on-horseback/.
