  Riding your horse around dogs?
This has been on my mind for a while now, so I figured I would post here to get some thoughts.

The area where I ride my horses has over the years turned into a dog park. Since we have dogs at my barn, all of the horses are used to dogs being around them and normally do not have a problem with it. But all horses have their limit, ya know?

A good magority of people who bring their dogs to the park dont have control over them. They come running over to the horses, barking growling, sometimes biting at their tails. Like I said, my horses are very tolerant for the most part, but when the dogs start darting between their legs nipping at them they get annoyed and have threatened to kick. Some people get all bent out of shape and even though we have been riding in the area for over 10 years try yelling at us that it's a dog park and horses arent allowed...

I guess my point is, what are your thoughts about this? How do you deal with loose dogs on the trail? And also this park has a rule that dogs may be unleashed as long as they are under control by their owner...from what I have described, would you call that under control? If one of my horses were to kick a dog, who is to blame?

It's annyoing that I cant even bring my own dogs there for a hike because of other dogs running up to them and getting in their faces which my guys do not like. =(
