Have either you or your horse ever been stereotyped?
People assume all the time that I rodeo and run barrels. Apparently all girls from Texas with blond hair who ride western are supposed to run barrels??? I didn't know that.
I also get all the time that I "can't possibly be riding good horses" when I tell people that I have Mustangs. I had a friend actually tell me "I can't believe someone like you would ride a piece of crap horse like a mustang." That comment really made me mad because it came from the same guy that has worked for over a year just trying to teach his horse to neck rein.
Anyway, in what way have you and yours been stereotyped??
