    Equestrian pet Peeves

    What are some of your equestrian pet peeves? Like one of mine is people who only have horses so they can brag.

    People riding with no helmet... Take it from somebody who suffered a serious concussion and was wearing a helmet (thank goodness!).

    Why do you care, bunny? What someone does or doesn't do with their horses is no concern of yours, as long as the animals are cared for properly.

    You wanna know my peeve? People who think only THEIR way of horse ownership is the right one, and complain when everyone else doesn't think the sun rises and sets on their opinions.

    Mine would be people with horses who criticize other people with horses for having different values or desires or practices.

    This is mine too speedracer. Nothing about the care and training of a horse is written in stone. There are different ways to do things and what may work for you will not work for me.
    Judging someone for having a different view simply makes no sense. Shalom

    Horse owners who think that no one can learn how to care for and ride horses without paying a zillion dollars for training, boarding and/or leasing. Or people that think they can't learn from someone who doesn't have fancy letters after his/her name.

    A pet peeve is a little annoying thing that bugs you right? Equestrianwise? People that cut you off in the showring without doing a shoulder check, just like on the road while you are driving!

    Another one -- group trail riding and someone passes at a canter or gallop. And, in that line of thought, having to apologize for someone in my group that did just that. Maybe that doesn't qualify as a pet peeve but something that ticks me right off instead.

    Upside down or backwards splint boots. And poor arena etiquette. I understand if your horse is misbehaving, but for petes sake, eyes up!

    People who buy their kids horses when the kids can barely climb on, much less adaquatly control the animal, and then refuse to pay for lessons.
