    What does the girth do?

    Correct Answer
    Hold the saddle in place
    Explanation
    The girth is a strap or band that is used to secure the saddle in place on a horse's back. It is typically fastened under the horse's belly and helps to keep the saddle from sliding or shifting during riding. By providing stability and preventing the saddle from moving, the girth ensures that the rider remains secure and balanced while on the horse. Without a properly fastened girth, the saddle may become loose and unstable, posing a risk to both the rider and the horse.

Approaching a horse from the front or side is generally recommended to ensure the safety of both the person and the horse.

The bridle includes the bit, which is placed in the horse's mouth to provide guidance and control. Without the bridle, the horse cannot be effectively ridden or controlled. The saddle and numnah are secondary equipment that are placed on the horse after the bridle is properly secured.

      As often as you want.

    • B.

      Not very much.

    • C.

      Never

    • D.

      4-6 times a week

    • E.

      You should ride every day for a week, and then give them a week off.

    Correct Answer
    D. 4-6 times a week
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 4-6 times a week. This frequency allows for regular exercise and training for the horse, while also providing enough rest days for their muscles to recover. Riding every day for a week and then giving them a week off may lead to inconsistent training and could potentially strain the horse's muscles. Riding as often as you want or not very much may not provide enough exercise or consistency for the horse's physical and mental well-being. Never riding a horse would not be beneficial for their health and overall fitness.

    Correct Answer
    B. False

      Double knot it and make a pretty bow for show

    Correct Answer
    C. Tie a loose knot that will give if they spook or run
    Explanation
    When tying a horse to a post, it is important to tie a loose knot that will give if they spook or run. This is because horses are strong animals and if they feel trapped or frightened, they may try to break free. By tying a loose knot, it allows the horse some freedom of movement and prevents them from injuring themselves or causing damage to the post or surrounding area.

      Four inches

    • B.

      Ten centimeters
