    It went over my head because I must have overlooked Golden Horse's comment (or I would've responded to it in the first place), then when I read Beauseant's post I didn't realize what she was replying to until I just went back and reread the thread.

    I apologize for spelling SUFFOLK wrong several times, I've never seen it spelled (never even heard of the breed really), therefore didn't know how to spell it. I guessed on the spelling and got it wrong, shoot me.

    SRCM, I am fairly certain that Golden Horse was not saying that we can't rant on this forum....we all do at some point....and you are right, it is good to get things like this off your chest.

    I am assuming that the point she was trying to convey is that when we get so busy focusing on mistakes others make or how this or that person isn't knowledgeable enough or skilled enough for this or that horse, etc....we tend to overlook the fact that even while we are so focused on what this or that person did wrong or doesnt' know...we are making mistakes ourselves.

    In your opening paragraph you spelled Suffix instead of Suffolk, and grand pre instead of Grand Prix....she was trying to make a point, not pick on your spelling or knowledge. And that point is that: NONE of us are know it alls and ALL of us make mistakes, in grammar, in spelling, in how we care for or train our horses, in our riding, in our decision making, etc.

    And she made this point in a non confrontational way. Hence it was a brilliant post.

    Thank you Beauseant, you have of course totally got the point, completely, we all have triggers, and we all rant.

    OP, you are entitled to rant, you are entitled to express whatever view you like, but once you put your thoughts and feelings up on a message board they become public, and as such people are free to comment ON them or to comment ALONGSIDE them, such is the beauty of the internet.

    Remember also that those public expressions are there for all to see, they could even be more permanent than the written word these days, they are for sure far longer lasting than the spoken word. On a BB like this all most of us is our written word, and from that assumptions are made and conclusions are drawn..............just saying

    Two comments:

    As much as spelling, grammar and word usage mistakes bother me, I try to avoid commenting on all but the ones that truly interfere with understanding. Karma dictates that as soon as one person comments on another's mistakes, they will make an unintentional whopper themselves. Anyone remember the member who posted a long rant on the subject and followed it up with a thread about "How to tell a good reigning horse?" I was dying to post that a crown, scepter and a red velvet turnout with ermine trim was a good indication of a reigning horse, but I restrained myself because I was sure my next error would get similiar attention.

    Second, if the only comment you can make on someone else's post is about someone's spelling, grammar or word choice, than your post is neither substantive, on topic or in keeping in the spirit of this forum.

    Maura, Golden wasn't pointing out spelling errors as a way of being snarky, rather she was trying to make the OP take a deep breath and relax a bit and realize we ALL

    1)make mistakes of various sorts, be it spelling, horse training, horse care, horse choices, etc.

    2)have pet peeves that irritate us and while you are in the process of a rant, you could be doing something that makes SOMEONE ELSE want to rant....ironic, isn't it??

    Just wanted to add that Suffix isn't a misspelling of Suffolk, they are different words and sound different. Pre for Prix does sound the same so that is just a misspellling. Don't know why that matters, I just wanted to point it out for no reason!

    I'm just going to ask a question and then I'm leaving.
    Who wouldn't get upset about someone making a horse rollkur (if you don't know what it is you can google it; its quite bad), or riding a horse that has hip problems and can only be ridden lightly at a play day trying to make it run at the speed of all the other horses?

    Yeah there are worse things then leaving a horse in a pasture, and selling a non-kids horse as a kids horse (that isn't even yours), but seriously bragging that you have a grand prix horse and la de da after a while gets sickening. Imagine having to listen to that at shows, at school, and online. I got fed up with it last night, and I had to get it off my chest so instead of confronting her rudely I posted here. Yes people make mistakes, but I'm pretty sure spelling errors aren't going to eventually kill anything.

    SRCM, I quite agree, if you see those things of course you are going to get angry, and then you rant, and that's fine, people who aren't involved in that situation just won't get the same level of anger that you have.

    You are as entitled to rant about things, and so am I if I choose to, once again the beauty of the internet.

    As to spelling mistakes killing people, mmmmmm I don't know, for day to day interactions the then we can get away with sloppy use of grammar, punctuation and spelling, but when it comes to things like the medical profession, or the army, I can see dire results if they are cutting or bombing in the wrong place....

    If I am allowed to state my opinion, I want to go on record as saying I believe that SRCM is totally overreacting.

    I also believe that ANYONE taking part in a forum like this needs to have a thick skin and be able to withstand comments that they may not like or views they find offensive.

    These type forums are not for the faint of heart

    And I will probably get deleted for this because even if it is kindly stated, it is in opposition to the moderator(s), but I will give it a try: I caution the moderators not to pamper or cater to certain posters who for reasons of their own find offense when none was intended or impliled...because that quells any and all discussion and posters who are labeled as easily offended by other forum members or who are thought to be complainers will often be ignored because no one wants to post to them for fear of offendeding them and being deleted right and left.

    Because everyone didn't support you in your rant?

    but none of us KNOW that what this person is doing is actually rollkur. In discussions past, there were some disagreements in the training forum on what is rollkur and what isnt. Sorry if we don't get upset about something you say you saw but we didn't

    ALL of us have seen similar misuse of an animal and we have come on here to rant.

    I am glad you think so..... cause I have a pasture puff



    Quote:

    well look at the bright side, it isnt your horse either, so you don't have to feel guilty if some kid gets hurt by this. Hopefully any mom will make sure to check this horse out thoroughly before buying it for their child.

    Ah, finally, the crux of the problem. She is bragging and you are sick of it. A hint of jealousy perhaps? If someone bragged to me about their Grand Prix horse it wouldn't bother me a bit cause I don't show or care one whit about that stuff. We trail ride. So, I wouldn't be jealous of her Grand prix horse....

    as many of us do. BUT, i've seen alot of posters take some pretty hard comments on this forum, myself included, and they either flip out and run away, or learn to accept that there are those who may not agree with you and are not hesitant to say so....or those who pick out things YOU may be doing that irritate THEM.....it goes both ways.

    And neither is this girl bragging about her Grand prix horse!!!!! Irritating, yes!!!! Deadly, no!!!!!!

    Another concern, not spelling

    OP,
    In reading your long rant another concern came to mind , not related to your spelling. You would be amazed at how many times someone rants about another person they ride with , or who is at their barn, or is currently on the outs as a friend, and then in a few days or a week or two, things change and they are begging the mods to delete all the bad things they said about that person for fear of it coming back to bite them.

    So, one needs to remember when enjoying a rant, that it's a public forum and you never know who is going to read it. Hopefully, this will never be an issue for you in any way.
