"You're better off betting on a horse than betting on a man. A horse may not be able to hold you tight, but he doesn't wanna wander from the stable at night." - Betty Grable 

Being a horse owner or horse rider is quite the responsibility and should be seen as such, but if you're good to your horse, the horse will be good to you. Part of that means having the correct equestrian etiquette, which is as much about safety as it is about tradition. How well do you know your equestrian etiquette? Could you pass a quiz on it? Here's your chance to find out! 

For thousands of years, humans have been using horses for their own needs. Originally, they were used for traveling, labor and war. However, over time, equestrian sports came about, including polo, arena riding and trail riding. As these sports developed, so did ideas on how to treat a horse, the environment, and others around you. This is known as equestrian etiquette, and it should be an essential element of riding a horse.
