Ha ha this thread is funny. (ooo and Flitter, your horse is gorgeous!!!!)

When we do riding lessons, we always use terms like, "ask your horse to stop" or "ask your horse to back up". It's always so funny when the people actually ask the horse "stop, Gypsy!" or "Nadeyus, turn!".....

I really like it when people are selling a horse and in the ad they put "he's a 15.7hh horse". Ummm...you mean 16.3hh?

I really love it when stuck up children who think they know everything about horses would ride in my lesson time. I would sit on my horse and they would walk around the arena saying "trot ^insert horse name, go faster". And then when they finally figure out how to get their horse to trot, they start freaking out saying their horse just keeps running off on them.

And my responce to these kids is always, "Don't let him"

I haven't read all the posts, but one I hate is...

"Isn't that saddle going to fall off? Look at how loose you have it."

They are reffering to the back cinch!

We have a barn full of super sleepers. They all love to sunbathe. We had a humane officer show up at our farm a few years back and asked to see the horses. We are a rescue and didn't ask any questions. We figured someone had turned us in because we have 'a barn full of half dead horses'...people who report need to look a little deeper before picking up the phone! This time, he came because they got a call that we had half a dozen dead horses laying in a field. The person was so adamate that the horses were dead, he called a dozen times! We all laughed so hard...the officer included!

My grandfather and his girlfriend were visiting us and my hubby comes walking in with a pink lunge whip I had bought that morning and a questioning look, so I say it's a lunge whip for my horse. My grandfather's girlfriend said she rode horses as a kid but she NEVER hit her horse with a whip and looks horrified. So I explain that it's not used to hit the horse, I put my horse on a long line and hold it behind her so that she'll go in a circle around me. Girlfriend says "oh, when I was a kid, we put a saddle on the horse and rode it.....we never did these newfangled things like making the horse run around with nobody on it"

If you're not practicing, someone, somewhere is, and when you meet him, he will win.

On that topic - a friend of ours had the cops called out on him because a lady INSISTED his 3 draft horses in the field were on fire. It was a colder day and he had just put them out to field after working them so you could see the heat coming off them. She was freaking out about putting them out before they burn to death!!!!

These are great!
I was riding Remi at my house and my neighbor (who is a older lady) comes down and starts to watch. When I walk out of the ring to go up on the trail she asks me what breed he was. I said he was a draft horse. When she heard that she had the most shocked look on her face and says "You can RIDE those?! I thought they could only pull plows!!?"
I laughed soo hard about that.

lol...i had the SPCA called on me once, it was winter and some "horse lady" called them saying that we where horrible because we left 2 of our babies out all night and it was freezing. It was only like -10 Celcious and they where both wolly mammoths, they didn't even look like horses because of the hair on them. Suffice it to say we where fine, they where fine and we had shelters for all the horses.
