"You smell like horse." No duh. I do have an 1100 lb 5yr old baby. Who just happens to live in a barn. I'm pretty sure being my mom you would know I have a horse.

"Is your horse a thoroughbred? They are the only real horses worth something."

"Aren't Appaloosas ponies?(Looking at me with astonished eyes and a tone to match)" Just saying I know there are pony size apps but mine is 16hh. And being a bigger rider it kind of annoys me. ( 5 ft 9in, about 220 lb. I ride at 22% of my horses weight.)

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 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.

Guess this is a major pet peeve of mine that horse people say: "shoed" as in, "My horse was shoed today."

This is what happens when you have democrats in office

Why do you need a second horse? You already have one.

Why would you buy that little girl a pony....its a baby horse.

Why would you ride horses if you have to clean their poop?

You fell off of that horse and got back on and kept riding it? Why didn't you ask for a new one? Thats dangerous!

OH! I forgot some that I've gotten from boarders.

"You're wasting this hay by feeding it to her, she won't eat it. She spreads it out and stomps on it." While her horse was gobbling said hay in the stall behind her.

"She is really spooky." Same boarder as the above quote. Her horse is about as bombproof as they come.

"Does he look like he is settling in okay? I'm worried he'll hurt himself if he doesn't calm down." About a horse who had been there for six weeks already (this comment was also made during feeding time...of course he was excited, he wanted his dinner).

When I was talking to my old BO about getting my mini donkey: her "we were told that donkeys smell & attract flys". Every one asks me what I'm going to do with a mini donkey & I tell them that I'm going to teach him to drive (I have to explaine, no, not a car) so I can hitch up my ass & go down the road

Cowgirl up!

I wish I had the words to explain to people how dumb they are when I say "I am really tired, that was a good lesson" and their reply is "why are you tired? All you did was sit on a horse right?"
