Sounds reasonable to me, riders should always be responsible for
controlling their horses. Otherwise, they might cause accidents. An out
of control horse is a menace to everyone.
This doesn't mean that I am ALWAYS in control of my horse (horses being
unpredictable creatures), but I am willing to accept responsibility when
my horse is out of control.
