I HATE Snobby horse people

I just had to rant. My mom just recently found out about my "friends" not being so friendly and we haven't seen em in 6 months. Happy I was able to cut off those relations. Anyways here are some things they've said to me emphasising their snobbery. They are twins by the way


1. "you started riding at seven? I started at three"
2. "How high do you jump?.. oh 2'6? Yeah my trainer is about to move me up to 3'6.(in a casual tone)
3. " Have you gotten any better? Good I'll have some competition(and I did beat her)
4. *After I got 1st in jumpers and she got second* You got lucky my horse spooked.
5. You probably won't make it into a equestrian team since your legs don't stay still

I'd like to hear your experiences with horse snobs. Lol

If ANYONE talked to me that way, you could count on them never saying anything like that to me ever again. I would set those little brats straight about who's who on the food chain and that they have no place trying to one-up me. I don't mind people who casually discuss their accomplishments, hell I'm eager to hear your experiences about competing in the level above me as I could gain some tips, but bragging and needless competitiveness are not welcomed by me.

haha oh my goodness! Im not going to get started... haha one of them said something to one of my friends.... lets just say she's sooooooo lucky I wasnt there >:( I would have murdered her. I ride dressage, and am in a world with mostly adults, im only 14, and im actually AMAZED at how childish and witchy lots of adults can be! Like, the drama that my school friends usually get into is NOTHING compared to some things the supposedly "adults" do and say. Sometimes my jaw drops at it.

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.

Yes I agree!!! This past year I experienced some of the most rediculous drama from adults. 30 and 40 year olds acting 5. Seriously they need to just grow up! But hey that's life right?!

I can relate. A supposed "friend" of mine was completely ungrateful after I ran halfway across the XC course to pick up HER horse's bell boot that had flung off after the water complex. Then I helped load and bathe her horse.

She wins the event and proceeds to say "I can't WAIT to rub this in rider X's face!" Rider X is a girl we've both known forever, and is a very good rider. Apparently she is jealous... yeah right.

Uugh.

Look like a SUPERSTAR, Ride like a FOUR STAR, Win like a ROCKSTAR

Where I live, there's a few main stables that compete against each other - I'm so happy I'm basically the only person who trains with my trainer now (she's pretty much retired, but still does my private lessons) cause the people from a few of those other barns can be VICIOUS! They badmouth everything! The riders, the instructors, the horses, the tack, the training.. Everything. And the worst is for years I was one of the only independents and got along with everyone from the other barns, and they would badmouth each other to me..
I've since grown up and I don't listen to it and unfortunately I like to keep to myself.. I kind of have the attitude now that I have enough friends outside the horse industry, I don't need ones within that probably would badmouth me.
My old friends who are good friends, I've kept. Am I interested in meeting new not-so-nice friends? Nope.
