    Sarahver, I have to say it: that horse in your avatar is beautiful!

    I agree with a lot of what people have posted, but one thing that bugs me is in books or writing, authors ALWAYS have their characters riding stallions, because apparently its more impressive. And the authors who write about horses, but have no idea what theyre talking about.

    People who are judgmental and refuse to see anything as right except their way. Different is not always wrong!

    ^ I second that, Always.
    I ride and show with a gaited barn- but I don't ride gaited myself. At the showgrounds we once went to, everyone glared at the gaited horses and their riders. If they realized I rode with them, they glared at me too. It is an open show, local, with $.50 ribbons as prizes. The attitude is really not necessary. :P

    Also, I get slightly annoyed when people try to make their horse sound more difficult than it really is- I see this at some shows too, where people will be like, "Don't trot next to me, my horse is sensitive!!!!" and their horse is super calm. It drives me bonkers. Rudeness in classes/warm-up rings period upsets me. It's just a local show, don't get your panties in a bunch, as everyone likes to say.

    Judges who take themselves too seriously bug me too.

    As far as riding goes, when people have puppy paws, it drives me up the wall.

    1) English Riders who think they are tottaly better than everyone(Not saying any of you think that) Drives me absoluty crazie.
    2)When people say "Oh, horse riding doesnt take skills" Yeah uhmm try hopppin' on my 1D barrel horse or my 6 year old stally and see how far you get!
    3) Stupid kids that over work their horse at a show. LIke I went to fair grounds show and theyre was a girl about 10 maybe and you could tell she had a rescue horse. That horse was super good. They little girl got on her horse as soon as she was all tacked up they whole freakin day everytime I walked over to see my cometeion I saw the girl galloping the horse around the warm up ring. They horse was covered in sweat and it was only about 2 hours into the day. The horse could slow to a canter or trot and she would whip the horse so hard. They it was her turn to go for barrel racing I think it was and I heard her say to her horse "save your engery girl" Yeah well you kinda stared blowing that off fricken 6 hours ago. She got like 50 seconds for barrels. Poor horse :(

    Sorry for the novel I just had to share...://

    Why thankyou! He is a funny boy, a stallion in fact, I doubt he was ever featured in a novel though
