Ignore it. It is only fun for them because they get a reaction out of you. If you let it roll off you like water rolls off a duck, then it doesn't become as fun anymore.

Or become wittier/sarcastic. "Like I haven't heard that before*laughing*" "You're just jealous I can control 1200(ie) pounds of horse flesh, and you can't handle 100 pounds of boyfriend".

I agree with Velvet. Just ignore it. I grew up in a ranching community, so if you DIDN'T have horses, you were made fun of. Also, surround yourself with people who share common interests. Right now, two of my closest friends both have horses (one of them boards at the same stable I do). We can talk horse stuff and especially when we get talking about how my training Aires is going, everyone around us has no clue what we're talking about and THEY feel like the dumb ones.

Ooooh! Yeah, I know how that goes. :-/ The barn I used to work at turned that way (got very catty and the BO started talking behind my back and another boarder's back about us and saying not very nice things at all...especially considering I worked for her for two years without any kind of pay at all).
