    When members use threads to make thinly veiled, passive aggressive jabs at each other. People bent on carrying on a feud for whatever reason should do it off the Horse Forum, and not commandeer anyone's thread as a battle ground.

    Amen. I am tired of constantly having the same people grinding vents. Enough of this foolishness, please.

    A little bump of my own.

    1. I believe it's been said, but I want to repeat it because it is a HUGE pet peeve of mine - when other horse people approach you and say what you're doing is all wrong. That their horse is so much better than yours will ever be. Like, REALLY?! I don't even know you!

    2. When I was younger at this barn we used to board at, I was just starting to get into barrel racing. This woman at the barn terrorized me so badly, and she was at least 30+ years older than me. It made me to not even bother getting into barrels. So that's a pet peeve of mine, when older adults pick on the younger kids. Like picking on a kid that's many years younger than you will make you look better.

    Other than those... I agree with all that has been said.


    BUMP.

    Oh how horrible! I agree adults should know better than to terrorize, and should be there to encourage and support children! Especially when it comes to horses

    One of mine is when people don't even tack up their own horse... At my previous barn there was a lady who only showed up after her horse was tacked and warmed up(!!!). She'd hop on, do the jumping course or whatever, then jump off and leave, giving some one else the job of cooling down and untacking. She didn't even give the horse a pat or anything.

    Another one is when people don't warm up; they just get on and go cantering off, and proceed to canter for an hour then jump 1.20 oxers, I experienced that once too.

    And people who don't look where they are driving at show grounds... At a show I was with my instructors right at the edge of the ring. I was about 6 meters away from the road. Anyway, I was mounting up to go warm up, when a car just began to back up off the road, aiming right for me and my horse! He heard everyone telling him to stop, so he did, but then proceeds to go on a rant about how it was MY fault for "standing so close to the road". I wasn't anywhere near it! And a horse in bright green is pretty hard to miss don't you think?

    I can think of a LOT more, but then I'd be typing all day lol.

    The judge didn't, that's why they didn't place well.

    Junk & farm implements anywhere horses are.
