    I think one of them might be wrong… The correct answer for “11. Which piece of tack should be the last one introduced when starting a young horse?” Is actually ‘Bit’, not ‘Girth’.
    Just thought I’d let you know. :) Thanks!

    #3 “At what age is it safe to start a horse under saddle with light riding?” It should be 2 years, not 3. After all, just look at the Kentucky Derby which is for 3 year olds and they have to have raced their 2 year old year as well. Pretty difficult to do that without a jockey riding. :) Thanks for the help with the other answers. the British are definitely different with quite a few things than the US is, especially in the West.

    Wow I passed level 9 today because of this site. MG I had that question and I believe your correct but I think howrse.com is wrong because I followed that answer and I got it right. So blame it on howrse.com not howrsehelper.com.

    Q) The areas of forests occupied by discrete groups of New Forest ponies are commonly called
