People who school/punish their horse AFTER the class if it did bad. Sorry, if you're going to show you should prepare and train BEFORE the show!

PETA extremists. Just last weekend I was walking through a cattle barn at the fair and there was this crazy lady making her kid walk around in some cow poo and taking pictures of it. Okay, maybe it's more of a sanitation thing than a PETA thing, but I hate those extremists too!

People who waste/ruin horses. I've seen people go out and buy AMAZING horses and they just sit in the pasture.. or people that buy amazing, talented (and forgiving!) horses that yank on their mouths or ride in crazy spurs and stab the horse every stride. :(

That really isn't that much of a big deal to me, except for when the horses are freakin' bolting on the line, rearing, bucking, etc, and freaks the other horses out!

Omg! Yes! Especially if it's an already crowded arena!
The last show I went too my poor girl nearly got attacked by a little welsh pony being lunged! Haha

I know, unfortunately, several people that insist that I let my 3 year old AUTISTIC son ride their "Completely dead broke horse" and give me a hard time when I don't.... then the next day they stand in front of me laughing that they have no control over their horse. What the heck?! Oh and one of them put Boy Scouts on her horse one day and guess what happened? The horse took off at full gallop with it's head straight up in the air. *slaps palm to face*

People who post things on a public BB, then get pissed off when they don't get the opinions they want to hear.

People who think they can control what others do or say, and then get pissed off when they find out they can't.

Good one. People not knowing the basic arena rules. People ignorant of stallions and not handling them according to them being stallions!

Please enlighten me as to what BB stands for, if you will
