Out of Kick Zone
Here’s a quick tip for staying safe while doing groundwork with any horse and especially when working around young or green horses. Always keep in mind that a horse can reach to the side as well as behind to kick. To stay safely out of his kick zone, use a flag and stick or another form of extension of your arm so you never have to step too close to your horse. You can use the flag and stick to shoo your horse away or as a barrier to keep a pushy horse from encroaching on your space.
