A horse has a blind spot directly behind it.
You might startle it and cause it to kick, which could result in serious injury. • While working around a horse, stay close to the front or sides where it can see you and will not be tempted to kick you and, if it does kick, you will not be struck with the full force of its kick. • Always mount a horse in an open area, never in a barn or near trees, fences, or overhangs.
If a horse should sidestep, it could force you to bump up against any of these obstacles, and you could be injured. • Never cross a paved road.
