Are horse people kinda like bikers with "colors?"

Ok so i've been noticing a LOT around here that some horse people are like bikers with "colors". If you don't know what I mean by that its where you have the "bad to the bone" harley bikers and the "Badass, speed demon" crotch rocket riders. I have a crotch rocket myself and my fiance does too he also has a harley and we only ride alone or with family because we don't want to be associated with the "colored riders". This is the same with horse people. I ride alone (on horseback) now because so many riders are like that and it ticks me off. Horse back riding is such a controversial topic now days and there are so many people who will try to prove you wrong with anything you say! So to those of you like that out there just be glad we do not live near eachother, I have absolutely ZERO tolerance for you. By the way I'm venting because I have reached my boiling point with rude comments and i'm done being nice and taking them in and just breathing them out, so if you want to leave me a rude comment on somthing I have MADE A MISTAKE on you better be able to take a rude comment back!!

Riders liek that really bug me too. But I have to put up with a lot of them because I ride dressage at a boarding stable, and I compete... o my god, at compititions they are EVERYWHERE. Lol

I don't really understand... you mean "colors" as in how people are clique-y with their own discipline, breed, etc? or do you literally mean colors? Sorry, I just can't understand by what you wrote what you mean.....
I know lots of snotty people in the horse world, but there are plenty of nice ones too. I usually just ignore the stuck up ones and try to have fun with the cool ones!

Lol its good to know that you guys agree with me.Well what I meant by colors is exactly what you first said...its a clique. Yea I hate when people are snobby too and they don't give you the benefit of the doubt and just rip your head off its like, ok ill give you one more chance to be nice than that's it ya know!? And yea theres a few people who come to me fiance's aunts house to ride and they are sooooo stuck up and I said something to the one girl and she hasnt come back since (the people who come and ride are just volunteers for the theraputic program btw).

Haha once when I was at a dressage show there was this REALLY stuck up girl that only rode dressage and thoguht that any other breed of horse other then a warmblood was stupid... bahah I went in the warmup ring while only she was in there... so I took off my saddle and did some barrel racing with my thoroughbred(there were barrels set up because there was also a rodeo thingy that weekend) and did that, then I went into the ring (we were in the same class) and beat her... haha I didnt care bout winning, I just had to laugh at her face when she found out.

I've always found horse people to be very snobby. I'm not sure what it is about them that makes them so sure they are the best but.. whatever. Have fun, I guess.
Someone people can't take a bad comment about their horse or themselves, and that's too bad because it's a good skill to have.

On the other hand, I absolutely detest crotch rockets! Freaking little turds racing around on them, cutting off traffic and dodging between vehicles... Makes me wish I could run one over legally. Lol

Lol that's awsome ridergirl23, a love to barrel race especially bareback. I also agree with you on the fact that there are good people and bad people.

As for you WSArabians this was what I meant by colors in my first post. A lot of people think crotch rocket riders are as you mentioned fast, stupid, etc but we are not. Granted there may be new crotch rocket riders who do that be eventually they learn to take it on the track after a few tickets lol. Same with harleys, a lot of people perceive them to be badass, skull breaking, etc but we are not (i say this because we have crotch rockets and a harley and I love both and we ride both)! But I also agree with you when you say that a lot of horse people are snobby cuzthey are lol

I don't mind Harley's. I think they're sort of like suicide on two wheels and I'd never own one, but they are gorgeous! I happen to be a big fan of bikers. Working in a bar they were my favourite customers. My dad was good friends with several Hell's Angels and they hung around a lot when I was younger.

I don't mind people on crotch rockets if you can drive like, as they say, "a white person." IE - Drive sanely where you don't put MY car in danger. Cause that pisses me off. And that goes towards ANY driver, be in a bike or a truck.
Unfortantely I've only seen crotch rockets driven by ******ly testosterone-ated kids who think they are the cat's ass and have NO regard for other driver's around them.
But if you drive them safely and properly with respect toward's other driver's, then I have no problem what-so-ever. I know some driver's are not this bad and can be practical, it's just the majority of them are being driven by stupid teenagers with a death wish.
The big men around here drive Harleys. lol

Lol yea I agree a lot of testosterone filled kids are idiots on crotch rockets it gives me chills when I watch em fly by and picture them dropping their bike at 100+ mph and watching them fall and get hurt because trust me, that **** HURTS! Lol. I also love harleys lol and yes as the women around here also say "the real men ride harelys" too. Lol
