1. All guns are always loaded. 2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy. 3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target. 4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it. —Jeff Cooper
Now... I'm looking for similar set of rules for horse safety, but it seems there is none. Of course some lists do exist, but they are long -- too long to remember or even to repeat to someone before riding lesson... plus I don't really accept all the "rules". (According to those, night canter without bridle is a no-no...). Is there short set of "rules" somewhere?
