I do agree with you ML that life is full of risk, but a car and a horse are 2 completly different things and i don't think you can compare. You need to get into a car but you don't need to get on a horse! I have 3 kids and am soooo careful about all the dangers in life and I possibly go a bit over board sometimes, but i would prefer that, then have my child killed or hurt. Oh, and it is my job as a parent to do that!!!
