Chair seat is when you're mounted on a horse but your thighs are mor parallel to the ground and then your lower legs drop down at or close to a 90 degree angle. Basically you're on a horse but seated the way you would be in a chair :). You're not very well balanced like that and sometimes people will brace against their horse because of the way their legs are positioned.

Barrel racers that wear huge spurs and flap their legs like they are trying to fly away.

How lots of team ropers stand in their stirrups, lean over the horse and hold on to the horn the entire time they are riding. DUDE your on a trail ride, chilax.

People that lean into a turn, instead of picking up their shoulder.

When people lean back to do a sliding stop.

Snobby people.

When the jelly runs off my sandwich.

When your on a trail ride with a woman who has never had riding lessons, but owns a 15K Fresian, brand new dressage saddle and bridle that is decked out it crystals. And she has to dismount half way through the ride because her horse is "nervous". No mam, he ain't, he was twitching at a fly.

People that ride in the $5 grazing bits that come in tack sets. Just bothers me.

When I am warming up in the pen, and all the walkers form lines and take up the whole arena.

How I grib with my calves sometimes when I ask for a stop.

Wow! You guys are super observant & critical of others' riding. When I'm out with my horses I am focused on enjoying the moment with my horses & my family...not sure I would want you guys watching me..I'm sure you would find something you didn't like...probably many...I know I'm not perfect!

When people post on the wrong diagonal- and make no effort to correct it- For real if you spend $10+ a class you should post correctly O.o

Or, in the case of lunging a horse, the constant flipping of the whip and clucking nonstop, even thought the horse is already going nicely.

Totally agree with this one! It also makes me crazy to watch people lunging their horses and moving more than the horse :0)

People with their feet too far in the stirrups- Like come on they're supposed to be on the balls of your feet!

I hate when people cluck constantly, it is so distracting and just annoying ! If you need to cluck that many times, its time to tap them with your whip.
