Good/Bad horse people

There is a saying or stereotype that horse people arn't good people. I agree with it more than disagree. Nearly all of the horse people that i've met through my life simply think they're better or talk down their nose to others. They genrally think they know everything.

There has been a few good genuine horse people i've met though but the difference is these people usually don't compete or arn't professional.

Horse people.. good people or not?

Not sure what to think of this post... are you serious?

I even had to go to your profile to see if this was your first post... coming on a horse forum and asking if we are good people or *******s, seems a little distasteful. From that point I guess I am an *******....

Majority of horse people I've met (whether professional riders, trainers, or pleasure trail riders) are nice, helpful and give you a hand when you need it. May be you just look at things in wrong way, or treat other people wrong so they give you some kind of attitude.

And BTW I never NEVER heard this stereotype from either horsey or non-horsey people. Frankly, I do find it to be offensive too.

I think this might be coming from the thread I just replied to where this poster asked about buying a Clydesdale... a few of us posted some of the many aspects of Clydesdale ownership you have to consider before buying a first one, and the poster responded negatively to it. Bit of an immature response to post something like this, but apparently the poster is a minor, so whilst not a justification, it's an explanation...

I was just reading the Clydesdale thread... Has a little interest as my son has owned a couple of them. My interest dwindled very quickly when I saw the everything going south.

No it came from the person who was ment to pick up the horse we're trying to sell. It was ment to be a week ago and nope, never showed up. Another person said they were going to pick her up, never did!
Then the first guy just out of the blue picked her up without notice and took her across the country.

The first trainer we took a horse to was a very stuck up person then the second trainer we went to she was a gem!

It must be a real different place where I come from then.

They are fantastic horses, but require a lot of considerations... and I think that those sorts of suggestions are fair. You'll know yourself if your son has had some. But I guess it wan't the advice the poster was looking for...

Could you post a link, please? I don't have any intention to buy one, but I'm curious to read about considerations.

Ok so which is it. It came from someone else and you didn't say it... but you do agree with it more that disagree.

I can be a jerk... I have a low tolerance of posts such as this one. Why would you come on a horse forum and ask a question such as this? Makes no sense to me. I don't care what area you are from a little common sense goes a long ways!

Sure : Convincing parents into getting me a clydesdale


And please - if I sounded like an *******, do let me know. It isn't the easiest to read tone online, and I'd hate to think I was fulfilling the 'stereotype'.
