No matter what level show you are at the warm up rings are always the worst. I was hacking my boss' very expensive, very fancy hunter early one morning and a girl almost ran into me because she was texting and cantering. Yes. Texting and cantering. I have had to stop whatever exercise I am doing just to get around people that walk three-abroad chatting on the rail, doge kids on pony's, come to a screeching halt yelling at a girl on a horse I was taking the outside track and all she did was just stare at me and run her horse straight at me. Another time I was on the 5 year old stallion. I picked an end of the schooling area to stay at and keep to myself the best I could. He is fairly well behaved, all things considered but he was a little fresh that day and I was obviously working hard to keep him in line. A trainer came in with a pony herd to teach a lesson and chose not the nearly empt side of the schooling area, but the side with the young jumper stallion who was bucking and playing. I really, truly do not understand how inconsiderate and stupid people can be these days.
