I'm not saying everyone is like this, but I find people quite judgemental. I thought my piercings were not even related to horses but I get quite a few negative comments on them when I go to shows or around horse people. I have lip, lobes, 2 cartilege, industrial and nose. People claim that they are a risk to get caught, but I've never had a problem. No risk more so than walking out my front door in the morning. So I'm just wondering if there is anyone like me who feels this way. There is a girl on my college rodeo team who has a monroe and she says she has experienced the same thing. What gives, guys? Why does my piercings get to decide whether I can effectively work with horses or not?
