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.
