and also AK at horse camp you DO w/t/c and jump a lot but only if you ride all year. Horse camp is NOT a significant source of long term horse knowledge

Guys if you saying that you know horses very well and give an example like: i know all the coats, that when you feed a horse you need to have your thumb under or something like that. Thats not Showing you know alot about horses,if you know alot about horses then you should know: all the equipement,jumping positions, you must know horses really wel

I got ten out of ten 😁 and for all those saying there is no 14.3 there is and @horsecamper I’m sorry but if you only do horse camp you probably don’t know much about horses, all the camps I’ve done have taught me nothing about riding all they do is lead you in then occasionally let you trot around the ring

I got 8\10 and people say I don't know much about horses but I have been at a horse camp for 5 years and im only 12 years old but those people don't know me like my friends do because I know all coat colors and a lot of horse breeds so now I can prove that I know about horses.

Hi, just so you know I don’t mean to make you feel bad or anything, but you NEVER wear polo wraps when jumping. It is too dangerous. However, you were right that a lot of horses do wear boots when they are jumping. They can wear many different types, including the most polular “galloping boots”. Thank you for your time! Everything else was right. Yes, there is a 14.3. Ignore those other comments. I’m in Pony Club.

I like this quiz but it was a little confusing because I am pretty sure it's American and I am from England some I had to take a moment to figure out soft brush and hard brush but otherwise it was would of been better if they also said body brush and dandy brush for those that aren't from America or whatever the creater of the quiz is from

Hi I have had horses since I was three right now I have a Appaloosa mare and a welsh D gelding. I’m also English but ride both English and western. My pony is 14.2hh he is counted as a pony my mare is 15hh she is counted as a HORSE and there is now such height as 14.3hh! Likewise we don’t have a hard and soft brush for goodness sake it’s called a body brush and a dandy brush! Like if you agree

A horse that is 14.3hh is a horse, and 14.2hh and under is a pony. Great quiz!

A horse is considered 14.2hh and over; not 14.3hh and over.
