    Ugh, that's beyond horrendous. Personally I think that if a trainer was ever convicted of killing or maiming a horse, they should be banned from the sport for LIFE. It's inexcusable!

    People who will repeat a command like 8 times before enforcing it.

    "Whoa. Whoa. Whoa! Whoa!! WHOA!" *Enforce the stop*

    Not only is it annoying to listen to and makes you sound a little pathetic, all you're doing is teaching the horse it doesn't have to listen to you until you're shouting and hot under the collar. My parents do this all the time with our dogs.

    Yes it is.

    The Ward family is an example. Father banned for killing horses for insurance....son getting a lengthy suspension for putting plastic chips in horse's jump boots.


    I have a pet peeve for people whose first reaction to a horse's evasions is to put a MUCH harsher bit in their mouth.

    Also, a person who uses harsh bits as a shortcut to good training.

    Allison, do you mean THE Ward family? I had no idea!! It's so sad that the son followed in his father's corrupt footsteps - I guess he learned the 'horses as mere chattel' attitude at home. Which, btw, is one of my pet peeves. And I agree that using stronger bits as a shortcut to training is, sadly, a very prevalent one.

    One guy I know who injured a horse so it had to be put down couldnt go to rated shows for over 20yrs. He did it when he was a teenager.

    It also drives me crazy when people repeat commands ! And when people will cluck a million times !

    Oh another one, is when people seem to ONLY care about safety, maybe it's just my years of rodeo experiences, but helmets seem like such a waste, and there are people that will like FREAK OUT if you don't wear a helmet. I swear it's like they care WAY more about themselves then their horse or something... I dunno. I'm generally only ever focused on my horse's safety, and rarely even consider mine.

    That's me. Although I do wear a helmet, but that's cause my mom makes me, and also it's cause that's what I choose to do. But I care about animal safety more than my own honestly. But that's just how I am, too

    Helmets seem like a waste? Tell that to the people whose lives it's saved. I don't wear a helmet either and I hate when people ream me out about it, but I think it's a little bit ridiculous to scoff at people for wearing one.

    *How dare they think about their safety! What a bunch of squares!*

    And how does wearing a helmet make you not care about your horse's safety?

    I agree with most of you! There really aren't many for me to name now.

    I don't think caring about your safety makes you care any less about your horses..... personally my helmet saved my life so I see no reason not to wear one.
