    Big Horsey Ego

    Ok just to vent, this has been bothering me for a while. I know a person, that is around my age (18-19 ish) that things she is Gods gift to horses, and it doesn't help that her parents think she is as well. She makes these big claims that she is a NH trainer, but she put a pellum in her very green stud horses mouth to lung him! Her mom made her a web site, for her NH training. She recently did a photoshoot with her stud colt, and you could see his ribs, when a friend of hers said some thing she told he "he's only 3 and going through a growth spurt, of course you see his ribs" She jumps to high for her ability, every time she goes over a jump she slams back into the saddle, and catches her horses face. Now she wants to be a barrel racer! With out any training she took one of her horses out to a rodeo, and had him running barrels an polls in a combo gag, while she graggs on his mouth through the whole thing. >.<

    Ok rant over. And before you ask, yes I am a little jelly in some ways. I wish I had the amount of horses she has, and I wish I had the support from my parents, I wish I had her super nice farm, but I don't wish I had her ability.

    Unforunately, there are many of these types of people.

    If she's taking unecessary risks (jumping too high) shell end up hurt. Maybe itll be a wakeup call?

    Shrugs your shoulders and learn from her mistakes.

    Um. In a young, growing horse it's actually preferable for them to be a bit ribby. You want them to be lean, not tick-fat.
    I assume you mean "Pelham" and "lunge" - I wouldn't be completely irate over that unless the lunge line was attached to the curb portion; but the bit has a snaffle element to it..

    It was on the curb portion of the bit.

    A growing horse should be like any other horse, you should feel the ribs but not see them. Some times a few ribs will show, because of growth, but when you can count every rib? I would think that's wrong.

    Sorry about spelling mistakes, I was typing fast and not really "trying" to spell.

    MHS, you haven't been around or raised many youngsters, have you? Youngsters are supposed to be on the lean side to grow properly. During different growth stages, it is actually a good thing to visibly see ribs when you're standing back.

    Actualy I've been around plenty of them. Not only being around a breeder, but raising my own horse.

    So your telling me it's ok to count every single rib clearly from a distence? That is news to me.

    Please don't put words in my mouth, so to speak.
    Not every single rib, obviously... but seeing ribs from a distance (i.e. Not just feeling them through a thin layer of fat) is not a bad thing on a youngster. Think of an eventing-fit or race-fit horse.

    Myhorsesonador, look at this as a opportunity....get use to this kind of "ego" b/c there is one in every crowd. Learn to ignore them and to be civil when any exchange is necessary.

    Well that is what her horse looks like and it seems like your trying to tell me that's ok. He looks like a rescue case.

    I don't consider a eventer or racer to be ribby. More like a grey hound, slim not skinny.

    Oh I know, but this girl is my neighbor. Every time we happen to be out side at the same time, she feels the need to come over to be a know it all ego monster. She isn't so bad, as long as I try to keep it to small talk, but it can be hard.

    I used to board at one barn, that I swear I'm the only one there that lived on earth. O.o It was a self care facility, so they could be avoided most of the time.
