You are assuming the death involved riding bareback and a spooky horse, it was the trainer's own personal senior mount who was fully tacked up. It was a freak accident, nevertheless, your recommendation is dangerous and simply strange. The OP can not just ride a boarder's horse, that would not be appropriate. Herding takes more skills than hoping the other horses will follow. Generally I gloss over your posts but please try to not make dangerous recommendations. Plus this should not be up to the OP to find a solution to bring the horses in, that's on the barn owner/manager. Exactly. The ones you could ride are generally in the back of the field.
