- Any horse that might kick should be identified by a red ribbon
in their tail.
- Stallions must be ridden by adults, identified by yellow ribbon
front and back and be well in hand. When tie conditions exist,
all stallions must be double tied at all times. The primary
rope is tied in the normal manner, but the second rope must
be secured around the stallion's neck, run through the halter
ring and tied in the normal manner. If the rope around the neck
is secured with a knot, it must be a bowline. The primary and
secondary rope will not be tied to the same tie spot.
- New rides are always welcome.
- More information and directions can be found in the Horsemen's
Roundup, or the ATRA Yahoo Group website.
