My pet peeve?

People who join forums to live out a fantasy life. Like the teen who says she's been riding 21 years, and is going to buy a $100,000 animal for a lesson horse.

Irritates the SNOT out of me. If people want to do fantasy role playing, there are sites for that. A horse BB is not the place to live out a My Little Poneh fantasy.

People who assume you can't ride, just because your a young teen annoys the crap out of me...I don't think you can judge someones rider capability on their age just talent.

How young? My bestest riding buddy is 14 and has been riding since she was 12 y/o.

That kid can ride rings around me, and I've been riding for over 30 years. She's simply amazing.

So it has little to do with your age, but it has everything to do with your actual ability. Too many kids think they're the greatest rider evah, when that's simply not the case.

People who refuse to get proper vet care for their animals and then make excuses for it.

Thought of another one...

People who think that just because you have a little "baggage" and are not a stick, you should only ride western and forget about riding dressage or any other discipline. Completely irks me. My dressage trainer does very well with dressage, has gone through level 4 with very high marks and um....she's not exactly a size 10, in fact she's the same size as me if not bigger.

Thought of this one while at the stable yesterday...

People who despite the fact that the arena is HUGE and absolutely NOBODY is in it, they have to lunge their horse directly in front of the gate preventing anyone else from entering the arena. Then when you ask them to let you in they have the nerve to be snippy with you, how dare you interrupt them working their horse. Yesterday a girl even had the nerve to say, in a snippy tone "can't you just wait until I'm done?" and acted like I was the person being rude when I NICELY asked her to let me in.

My biggest one is little boys who could have spent the two years they let their pony stand in a field actually riding then once a loaner has been found, created a really good bond, got the pony in a decent shape and ready to show plus finally moved to a good yard with beautiful toilets, guess who suddenly decides they want to go back to riding but not until the school summer holidays begin in two weeks and their parents agree.
^I know I should get over it but **** I loved that pony, if he was 2 inches bigger and I'd had the money and the room I would have bought him when the lad lost interest again a few weeks later.
Or people who accuse you have leaving a gate open when said gate is two pieces of wire and they have their escape artist Shetland in there even though you spent ages trying to make sure it was as closed as possible.
Crazy people who believe their horse is a quiet, safe ride when in actual fact it's a poorly schooled, spooky thing and they're too scared to ride it.
Crazy people who neglect to tell you that they've only had their horse for 2 or 3 weeks and have barely ridden it.
Crazy people who think a little bit strong equals horse that starts rearing, knocking you around and generally being a stupid thing and they never take it out by themselves either.
How do I attract the crazy people? I think I need to get better at spotting them.

Eagles may soar but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.
