The horses are back IN. They have been repeatedly pushing down this section of fence. Once animals start doing that, get a favorite “out” like that, they will keep going back and pushing it down until it works again. So for now, a gate was put in place to prevent them from getting to their favorite spot. After they forget about it, the gate can be removed and the fence repaired properly, and likely they will leave it alone.
Adam jumped on Zip’s back bareback and bridleless to ride her back into the field.
And I told him he was giving me riding lessons until I could do that, too!
