That horses are dumb, horse back riding is easy, horse back riding isn't a sport. =/

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

Yes, yes, and yes!!!

I hate it when people who CLEARLY have unhealthy obsessions with stupid tween one hit wonder singers, and they say I have a problem because I have an unhealty obsession with horses.

At least I'm working my arm flab. What are you working on? Oh right, becoming deaf and mute from your obsession.

I must say I agree with A Knack for Horses to some extent. But that's going off topic and I could talk for hours about how much I dislike tween pop "sensations" and how idiotic some girls can get over it (in my own opinion of course). I do think there is a difference between loving a sport or animal and throwing everything into it and crying/screaming/attacking people because a concert was cancelled because girls were getting hurt getting into catfights trying to get close to the stage.
Dedebird - There is a difference between having a perfectly safe, strong apprectiation of music (music FTW) and throwing a month long tantrum because you didn't get tickets to a Justin Beiber concer the first day they came out. I think it's fantastic that you some day want to be a singer and I hope you get there! =]

I had a phys ed teacher once tell me that horse riding was not a sport. My responce was to tell her that she wouldn't last the full 8 seconds on one of my horses and that she was perfectly welcome to attempt it at any time. She never took up that offer...
I've had friends groan when my school team coach reports my results to the school because horse riding is "ridiculous" and the "sport for wimps". That's when I remind them of the time that they cried when a football hit them. My horse slammed into the ground and broke my back. I didn't cry (though I thought I would damage my lungs from all the screaming...). So who's the wimps now children? =P

...Every rider has that one horse that changes everything about them...

I think you misunderstood what I said. I LOVE music. I love rock, country, jazz, soul, 80's, you name it. And I am absolutely jealous of anybody who can sing.

I am talking about this group of girls I know who have a weird and unhealthy obsession with Justin Beiber, Hannah Montana, and Big Time Rush (is that the name of the band?). There are very few musicians/songs that irritate me, but those three are it.

They blare the music in their cars to the point that people on the front steps of our school can hear the song word for word (did I mention the street is about 500 feet from the street? SO that is the deaf part.

And they go to concerts for these singers and they come to school the foolowing school day with raspy voices from screaming, "OMG!! IT'S JUSTIN BEIBER!!! OMG!!!" for the entire concerts. Hence the mute part.

I would never say that to them out loud. I understand that is their slice of cake, and I wouldn't start saying things like that to them, even if they do say I have an unhealthy obsession. But boy, do I ever think it.

I hate people who think that horses is just a "phase". I can see somebody saying that if you are just wanting a horse two after you get into them. But ummm...I have had this "phase" for an ENTIRE decade now, and I think I'm going to keep it for several more decades to come. So, yeah, its safe to say I'm just going through a phase.

Everytime I mention horses around certain people (usually boys) I always get the 'dogfood' & 'glue factory' references.

It really makes me mad!! I think they do it just for a reaction though.
