What is small and equine-friendly? A 'hobby tractor' with versatility to spare.
Borrowing horses in any capacity carries risks. How should you best address this issue as the owner of the property or boarding facility or as the person loaning or borrowing the horse?
No matter what is said, unless you have written permission from the horse's owner that an individual can remove the horse from your property, it should not leave.
You know a boarder is supposed to be out of town soon, but today a stranger is at your facility grooming the boarder's horse. What should you do?

Bigger isn't necessarily better, as these horse-friendly small tractors are proving.
You owe your licensee/guests a “moderate duty of care” for their safety. This is defined as a duty to warn of any dangerous conditions known to the owner of the property, but potentially unknown to the licensee/guest.

There are ways to diminish mud in high-traffic areas on your horse property.
