I really don't get why mountain bikers seem to hate equestrains so much. I read all the posts on there, and the majority of them were being plain rude. Someone suggested [most likely in jest, but still] that fireworks would 'even the playing field a bit'. Oh yes. Others mentioned wanting to smack a horse's butt as they walk past.
And you wonder why mountain bike x horse accidents happen? I think if they came over here, they'd understand that we don't condone or tolerate rude people on the trail either, and not all equestrians are [and I quote]:
"knuckle-draggin, terracotta-toothed, subliterate rednecks on horseback."
*shakes head* There are bad people in every sport, they shouldn't ruin the reputation of all.
