    I get all of these!

    If I'm walking around campus in my riding gear (tall boots and breeches), I ALWAYS get asked if I ride horses...no, I just like to dress like this!
    I constantly get asked if my horse is a quarter horse and get told that she's too skinny. No, she's a thoroughbred and she's only skinny compared to your ponies who look at grass and gain 50 pounds -.-
    And when I say that I ride horses, people always tell me, OH me too! My next door neighbor has two horses and they let me get on sometimes. Riding in shorts is the best! *talking about riding in a full leather western saddle*

    Oy.

    The other day I was talking about buying a horse and my dad waist he wanted "one of those with black hair and a brown body. Arabian"
    He also said he wants a horse that is "like 25 hands"
    XDD

    My dad is also scared of horses and asked if my old 22 year old dead broke trail horse (who I have to kick to trot) will buck him off x.x

    I'd have to say the one I get most is "do you ride your horse?" More than anything else. It drives me crazy.

    I hear many people mess up how a horse can be ridden and how can one drive a horse. It's quite often to get asked, do I "drive" my horse, hear a parent offer his child to have a ponied horseback "drive", etc.

    Also, when I told one of my colleagues that I have bought a horse, he was surprised about where would I keep the carriage. Hello, not all horses pull carriages if they are light draft type around here!

    My mom always argues with me about this. "You can just ride him and practice everything that you've learned so far"

    Or the whole "Why are you sore? You sit on the horse, you do no work"

    My high IQ brother slapped that one on the table. For a second, I was smarter than he was.

    Someone was once asking about me riding and was saying how it's so cool that someone so small can control something so big. Someone else cut in and said something like " I've heard that you can control them by just a bit in their mouth!"

    Right. just a bit. Who needs seat and leg aids?!

    Kinda sorta off topic but! I have some regular customers and every time they see me they ask about my horse. It makes me sooooo happy. :) They always ask me how he is and more than anything I say fat and I always get a laugh. I love my job some days. :)
