    Some horse air up and really show it off. I know my ASB's really feed off of the energy they get from it. They love it. Its fun.
    Boring quiet....thats why I don't watch golf....I like horses with energy.

    I cannot STAND "show moms" (and some dads!) Who put their child on a notsowellbuilt horse and expect them to win just because they're in a $300 outfit and the horse is wearing a $1500 show saddle, blinged to the teeth. Most of the time when their kid loses to another who is on a very well managed horse with great confirmation, they get so freakin huffy and super mad. Uh....hello?!? They're only children and its only a $6 show, get over it! Don't chew your kid or the other kid out over $6. It ain't worth it, honey!

    I also can't stand local judges nowadays. They are so biased! Western halter horses are supposed to be 2 seconds away from a heart attack, gaited horses should be emaciated and when it comes to WP horses? Be a peanut roller or GO HOME! That's their view now days and it buuuuuugs me! Ugh, does it ever bug me. I compete against a horse in western halter that actually has cellulite o_o cellulite!! Guess what? She wins every time. I work hard to produce rippling muscles on mine and she just leaves her's in a stall to eat 24/7. Ugh >>

    Another thing that bugs me is people who bully or beat their horses to see "results". Waiting outside of the arena at a State championship show one time I saw a woman park out her beautiful, solid black Racking horse stud. He parked out well, listened to her cues but he was obviously bored and started to fall asleep. She would snatch on his halter to make him wake up and scare that poor thing to death! Then, being a boy, bored and sleepy, he let "himself" down (all my geldings do that when they get relaxed, I guess they just don't want to hold it in! Lol) and when she saw that he was "down and out" so to speak, she struck his manhood as hard as she could with her whip. He squealed and jumped, pulling up quickly. She had the maddest look on her face as she wiggled that whip in his face and said, "if you do that again, I'll hit it harder!" The class hadn't even started yet!!!!! >:( this woman also tried to get my father and Sunny disqualified by trying to make Sunny kick her, but that's a whole different story.

    I agree local judges can be awful. People screaming at their horse for no reason... really? Horses have better hearing than we do- they can hear just fine. Whipping a boy's "manhood" OUCH!!! He was bored! What else is he supposed to do? You know tickling my geldings belly when he is "down and out" works just the same. I mean I'm a girl and that makes me hurt! Bottom line- don't line up so early!
