Horse people don't pay their bills.

How weird. I never ever was told any stereotype statements. Sometime people ask me very politely how expensive it is to own a horse, but that's pretty much it. The most silly thing I've heard was from another horse owner: "you don't have to take lessons, you can ride already".

Have to be shinny and short

I get the, "oh you must be rich" a lot and a friend stopped over at the barn once time and said, "oh my, I didn't think horses were that big! I thought they were more like large dogs!" My horse isn't even big, she's 14.3hh.

Haha. No one in WY would think about racing. Mostly people just don't believe me. I'm a huge girly girl. Skirts, dresses, high heels and pretty hair. I do not fit the cowgirl stereotype so I must not own a horse.

People think that since I own a horse and am not completely broke, that I MUST have tons of $$...Nope, I just don't have any kids

From a slightly different standpoint, I get this from a lot of riders..."Oh she rides ENGLISH...she must be a SNOB" SO not true! I'm the nicest, most down to earth and easiest to get along with person around

*hangs head* I'm probably the reason a lot of those stereotypes exist. I'm rather typical... I do find it funny though, when people find out that I ride...and how shocked they are by the type of riding I do!

I'm this tiny little 85 pound 4'11 teenager. 16 to be exact. If anyone thought that I rode horses, they'd guess that I was some sort of english jumper with fancy breeches and a $10,000 warmblood from Germany.

When I tell people that no- I work on a 'rustic' no electricity, spaced out, all horses live in a pasture, relies on man power ranch- I often get laughed at! Little do they know that I can rope as well as any of our cowboys can, I can ride anything from a pony to a fresh OTTB to a trained ranch horse, and I can fix just about anything. A car, fence, shed, gash in a horse's leg- you name it. And I own a mean little man-eating horse named Sour who was almost killed for being so agressive.

Oh the element of suprise...

When I say that I ride people assume I'm a redneck. When they find out that no, I don't barrel race (although it's fun!) I do dressage, then I'm a rich snob.

I think we all kinda get the same ol' crap from the non-horsey set.
