I briefly showed in IHSA (which is the college "circuit") and I made a complete dumb-head of myself when I tried to "exercise" my horse showing knowledge. Yikes... Sometimes it's just better to let everyone else make a fool of themselves, haha!
By that same token, I think it's one thing to request an opinion and receive and answer that you don't want to hear. It's another to have someone's opinion (*ahem* Great and Powerful Knowledge) thrust upon you.
Sorry for the double post!
I've been bracing myself for the worst at my new barn. I've been riding there for about a month and so far everyone's been nice but in this area you don't have to be good at ANYTHING to be a snob as long as you have a black Mercedes and expensive logos on your clothes. So far so good but I am really bad at letting rude people be rude so good luck to whoever decides they're better than me just by my off brand half chaps and sparkly crop lol Posted via Mobile Device
I have NEVER experienced this type, thank heaven. I love the stable I ride at. All the girls and the one guy, are fantastic. We are one big happy family and have lots of fun together. We do have one OCD woman who makes us all figure 8 our bridles, but other than that it's a horse haven.
Back in the spring. My friend and I did a benefit ride for the Humane Society of North Texas. When we were all gathered, this one lady commented on another ladies horse, asked what breed. Lady #2 states, spotted percheron. Lady #1 says, Percheron's don't come in that color, and several other hateful mean things about Lady #2 not knowing what her horse was. Lady #1 also had a dog and a mini-pony loose running around everyone, under horses etc. This lady was also the one who was giving the Sunday morning cowboy church service. She was so stuck up and snobbish! Her dog and pony got 2 people thrown and several others almost thrown. She would say, "How is it my fault, I'm way back here, it happened up there". Rude, rude lady!
Yes I was there too! That lady drives me nuts! And everyone there worships her! The rules clearly state no loose dogs or horses. She breaks both rules and nobody says anything! Because she sings at cowboy church. Oooh lol. She really is pretty rude. Acts like a friend to your face and then goes off and talks crap behind your back! Anyways OP, there's. ALOT of people like this you have yet to meet unfortunately Posted via Mobile Device
