Mare Protects Foal From Cougar Attack

A native of the western United States Mountain Lions or Cougars are large predatory cats, although they tend to stay away from humans and there settlements they have been known from time to time to attack humans and sometimes our horses.
Cougar - Attack
Humans and horses are often avoided by cougars, as they focus on small prey that is easier to catch and less dangerous. Although horses are often safe there are several cases of cougars attacking foals, below we can see footage of a cougar getting into a coral but soon relizes it is not the best idea as the foals mother protects her foal. The second video is bunch of trail riders who encounter a cougar while out riding.
Below you can watch footage from ABC news on the recovery of a foal who was attacked by a cougar while the mare was giving birth. This little foal was very lucky to have survived but is making an excellent recovery.

Buying Guide To Tack For Training A Horse

If you want to successfully train a horse, you should consider adding some special equipment to your tack room. While you may be able to make do with the tack you already have, training will be much more challenging without the right tools. At a minimum, you should have a halter, a lead rope, a bridle, a bit and a saddle. If you want to work with your horse while you are on the ground, you will also need a lunge line, a lunging cavesson, a lunge whip, and a good pair of leather gloves.

For horses that are learning the basics, you will need to start with the halter. This is the most important piece of tack you can own and you will be using it long after you finish training your horse, so don`t be afraid to invest in a nice one. Halters are loose fitting and very adjustable, so you shouldn`t have a problem finding one that fits your horse properly. Once your horse is accustomed to wearing a halter, you will need to teach him to accept a lead rope. Again, this is a piece of tack you will use well after your horse is well trained.

Before you continue from this point, you will have to decide if you want to train your horse to accept a saddle and a bridle before you climb into the saddle. If so, you will need to shop for longeing tack, which is specifically designed so that you can keep control of your horse as you train him from the ground. Since these pieces of equipment help you control your horse, you can easily teach him to walk, trot, canter, back up and turn without actually sitting on his back. Once he understands how to go through the paces, you can accustom him to wearing a saddle and bridle while you train him with the longeing equipment.

The first piece of lunging equipment you will need is the lunge line. This line is between 25 and 30 feet long and made of cotton ......
