I drive, so I constantly have to explain that NO it's not a Chariot, or a sulky and I don't race them. It can get annoying.
I've also had a few people relate my minis to ankle biters...like a lab vs. chihuahua debate...grrrr
OH or the "you have a mini? what is it good for?"
"Don't you know how to handle a REAL horse?"
I've had horses for 15 years, but I recently started riding, explaining that to people is a pain in the rear! I've had mini's and ponies for 15 years, this year we just got our first "BIG" horse and now I'm riding...IDK why that is so hard to understand.
