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

I'm told they smell, and are dirty. Sure they can be pigpens when they get in the mud puddles, but frankly horse is the best smell in the world!

TOTALLY agree! After I give my guy a good rub and a hug, I love the smell that's on me. Its not too fragrant, but as the wind blows, I get a whiff and I'm right back in that place. *sigh*

As for annoyances, I hate it when people say that horses hate people and wish they could just leave them alone. I know when my horse runs to me and nays, he's happy to see me. And as for riding, it bugs me when they say that to break a horse you should just jump on and "bronc up" As if your going to build trust by forcing him to wear himself out while carrying you "the predator" in his mind. And not to get TOO ranty, but what makes them think that they could stay on long enough to "break" a horse anyway. Those who can't stand dirt and the closest thing they've ever had to a wild ride is when they're pretty little sports car hydroplaned.

Everytime someone says "Horse back riding isn't a sport." I go red with anger and start saying words that should never leave my mouth.

I don't get why people need to say that! Dumb people. Unfortunately, the one person who says that to me most often is the man I am engaged to... Luckily for him he is joking to get a reaction, he doesn't like horses and won't ride with me because he is scared

I hate it when people say "horses are so expensive...you must be rich".

I am far from being rich...money wise anyway. But if you count the enjoyment I get from hanging out and riding my guys, I'm one of the richest people in the world.

Oh I could never be with someone who said that, it would irk me to th point of ruining the marriage. I was actually into this guy once, and he said horse back riding wasn't a sport, I forgot about him in a heart beat.

Good that your fiance is only joking though. If I was engaged to someone who even joked about them they'd be in the doghouse

Well this has been said but the what bugs me most is the "horse riding isn't a sport" people! This has also been said (about the people who assume horses are just a phase) but I just hate it when people ask me "so do you still like horses?" I guess it's a pretty innocent question but to me it seems ridiculous because I could never imagine not liking horses!

Boys in my grade are horrible about this! When I bring horses up one boy will yell 'DOGMEAT' at the top of his lungs. I just want to punch him so bad but I choose to ignore it and keep talking anyways. That and those boys that do like motor cross and as soon as you mention horses there all 'people that ride horses are wimps' or 'guys that horse ride are gay'. Bringing their opinions into it? Seriously? I DON'T CARE.

That and guys can be straight and horse ride : )
