A lot of girls at my barn act silly around the horses. For example, they'll take blankets ( like actual blankets) and put them on the horse to keep them "warm" while getting tack ect. But then they will start throwing the blanket on the horses head, and laugh at the reaction. Or if were going on a trail ride the girls on the really small ponies will " accidentally fall off" like 5 times. Then they just jump right back on their backs :/.
Idk, it just bothers me sometimes that they can't have respect around the horse. Their not a toy, their an animal. I think fun and games with a horse come to a certain extent. What do you think?
