MissColors, I had an appy with a HORRIBLE mane but the nicest tail I've ever seen. Thick, straight and three-toned.

When really good riders at my barn complain that "They aren't good riders."

When other people at the barn steal cross tie spots that are clearly yours. (This happened to me twice yesterday, I even had ALL of my tack and brushes there and was just going to get my horse at that point.

I'm sure I'll think of some more.

Why even listen to these aggravating people? They're just flapping their jaws. Many people seem to really like the sound of their own voice. Consider the source & love your horse.

Yuuuuup! I got this line the other day ' wow, you really got after him, he looked so scared (my horse)' ....what they didn't happen to see was my horse NOT moving of my leg......
I just smiled and said 'yes, the fur flys when I get pi$$ed off'.

Ps. My horse didn't look scared, he looked compliant!!!

For a while I was getting "you are SOOOO lucky Bandit is so quiet and easy to deal with"

I spent months teaching the big oaf that walking through people and barging through gates was NOT acceptable. I spend hours reinforcing that he wasnt to move a muscle until I told him he could. I spent more than 30 min the first day riding him working with a horse who kept threatening to go up on the hind legs and doing little hops.

Yes, my horse is quiet, yes he is a gentleman and I love him to pieces.. BUT I worked my arse off to get him there! Maybe instead of telling me how easy I have it.. they should put the time and dedication into their own horses.

Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.

When non-horsey people compare the care I give my horse to the care wild horses get.. I.e. "Horses don't need their hooves trimmed in the wild.." or "Wild horses don't need to be fed.." ETC

UGH!

I told someone today that when I go over to my friends house (who has horses) that we ride horses, and she is like "you don't do normal things?".... umm... when over a friends house with horses and you both love riding, riding IS normal I would describe her as a "city kid" who literally whines when you take away her phone... get a life..

I work at a rescue as an apprentice trainer. I love the constructive criticism. Gotta learn somewhere right?

Well one of our volunteers is constantly nagging at me about using a bit. The first horse I trained which I ride a lot, bareback, is a 20 yr old mustang, light riders and light riding only. She moves perfectly off of my leg, any direction I ask, I can back her around lots of different things (its fun to try obstacles) with just my leg.

I have complete control of her with just the halter, so no, I am not going to use a bit. Now if it was another horse, I would probably use a bit. I know I'm learning but I'm not an idiot either. My boss/trainer doesn't see anything wrong with it as long as I have control of her.

Of course I'm nice and I am always open to hear someone's point of view even if I disagree. I listened to his spiel once and he still won't leave me alone about it. I just ignore him and do what I do, but ya totally annoying LoL

Reminds me when I was in elementary school, I had to go to school in the city for a bit... I decided to start my own "horse club" with some of my horse crazy friends. All the "city kids" thought we were absolutly insane, but hey, I was the only one who missed a lot of school for horse shows and clinics
