    1. Seeing people load up all sorts of unnecessary gear on their horse in the name of "training" - especially when its being used incorrectly and possibly ruining what could have been a good horse. Its even more frustrating when they claim its their trainer doing it and don't have enough common sense to question their trainer about it or look for a new trainer.

    2. Getting a bigger bit in a situation where it really isn't the solution.

    3. People claiming their horses are out of big-name lines when that big name so far back its off the papers.

    4. People claiming the improper height on their horse (saying their horse is 17 hands when its obvious its more like 15) and not knowing how to denote hands - 16.5 hh instead of 16.2 hh.

    5. People who want to breed but don't have the slightest understanding on proper conformation or what makes a good breeding animal.
    This!
    And, stallion owners acting like fools online. I've seen more than one big name stud owner acting like a tart online bashing other stallions..

    One pet peeve.. those who are arrogant and present themselves as "all knowing" and condemn other methods of training/opinions OR those who condemn breeding when THEY have half breeds and "accidents" running rampant..
    And basically, anyone who is catty, spiteful, juvenile, and malicious while presenting themselves as respectable, decent folk in the horse world..

    Oh man, the ones who incessantly brag and boast about their horses breeding/accomplishments (like the ability to google doesn't exist) lol

    Those obsessed show parents or riders. Now it's alright to passionate about showing and riding horses, but there are just some people who take it past the extreme.

    And let's not forget the so-called adults aka- little girls (emotionally) that try to "one-up" you for attention... though they have no substance to hold enough interest.. you can usually spot them a mile away.
    Sad really.

    Very much agree- some just put TOO much pressure on the poor kids and horses, and themselves sometimes.. it's so much better just to have - FUN!

    Not really sure what this has to do with horses, but I really hate when people on horse forums incessently bump their own threads to keep them at the top of the list so that people will read them...are they really that attention-starved, and do they need outside assurance that badly? Are they lonely and unfulfilled, or are they simply seeking justification for their own actions? Must be a pitiful sort of existence, to need vindication so very badly.

    Of course, this isn't limited to just horse forums, or even just to the Internet...

    Perhaps cause they need an answer when no one will answer them? Although they could always use google to find the answer or something. I wouldn't know, cause I'm not a bumper either :P
