Thumbs down Someone told me my horse is UGLY!

This girl told me that she thinks my horse, Sydney, is ugly....
For one, I don't believe that ANY horse is ugly, and I most definitely don't think my baby girl is ugly either! So when she blurted out her arrogant mind vomit, what did I do? Nothing .... I was in shock!

What would you have said and/or done?

Here is my BEAUTIFUL girl xx

Nothing. People have a right to their opinion and the right to say it. While most people can keep their negative opinions to themselves, others just can't keep their mouths closed. No need to start something over it, just walk away.

I would have said something along the lines of "wow-you're rude" and left it at that. Your horse is gorgeous by the way!

If you're showing, just tell them it only matters what the judge thinks.
If you aren't showing, say you can't ride pretty.

My mare gets teased for being too short to run. She's 13.3 and she kicks butt quite frequently.

It's called a counter canter...

I personally would have told them to go flip sand and not given it a second thought. Only one person's allowed to insult my horses looks and that's me! (I affectionatley call my mare 'old nag' all the time, but in love). Now if I now the person real well (like my BO), we swap jokes about our 'ugly' horses and poke fun at each other, but it's all in good taste. I've always stood by the fact that it's what's inside the horse that counts. Honestly, I never even tolerated it when judges made a comment about my mare. They didn't like how foundation she looked for a QH..... my response was probably what killed my show career....

Don't let it get to you, your horse is beautiful!

Meh. One of my good friends dislikes my Fjord just on the principle that he thinks Fjords are funny looking and unattractive, despite not minding her actual personality.

Bah. You ran into a rude person. I never have cared what others thought of my animals. You know your horse, and if you like her that is all that matters.
