I constantly have people yell at me about driving my 'tiny little baby horse' because I'm going to hurt her. She's a 5 year old miniature horse ;)

Calling a mini a 'miniature pony' annoys me too.

I also was asked, back when two of our mini mares had 2 and 4 week old miniature mule foals, why the 'tiny donkeys' were following the 'poor ponies' around. I explained that those were their babies and the lady goes 'Ha, I'm not that stupid, I know ponies can't have donkeys.' I then told her that the babies were actually crosses between horse moms and donkey dads, and that they were called mules. She rolled her eyes at me, told me not to treat an adult like her with such idiocy, and told me there was no such thing as mules and they were only in books.

Right ;)

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

I really can't see that as funny, since most people, horsey and not, call the thing the horse's head goes into a bridle. Not that I claim to be an expert or anything, but I had to look up the word just now to understand what you were talking about

I was watching Seabiscuit in my history class and some students who heard I had a horse turned to me and asked me what being a jockey and being in races was like.

I find it funny how the "equestrian style" is popular now, so people go to Macy's and get "breeches" (ones with the knee patches, yet with a huge inseam lol) and the "riding boots" (with zippers along the inside of the leg) and they think their so cool like that, and people love the trend. However, if I go into a grocery store after my riding lesson with my legit breeches and boots (of course accompanied by the lovely aroma of horse) I get people looking and staring at me like I'm some weirdo. Lol

Hahahaha! They do the same thing around here except EVERYONE wears wrangler blue jeans, western style shirts, spurs, a giant belt buckle and a $250 cowboy hat. Then I get looked at weird because I am wearing a pair of blue jeans that are obviously not right off the shelf, a western style shirt that sports grass stains and horse hair, a pair of spurs that are no longer shiny and boots that have rather large holes wore in them and the heel is about to come off.

Come in guys, I thought you were cowboys! Lol!

^^hilarious!

I can't even tell you how many times I've told someone that I'm going to the barn and they're like " WHAT you're going to a bar!!" They're always shocked because I'm only 16 and under drinking age, so I have to explain that I ride horses. This leads to "COOL! You have horses!?!" Which I then have to sadly explain that I only take lessons.

My boyfriend refers to hooves as either paws or claws.

I've worked in the guided trail ride industry for a while and boy did I get loads of the wonderful and inspiring stories from one-time-riders!

"The stallion horse I rode then galloped off and tried to buck me, but I pulled him to a walk and really showed him who's the boss!"

*a horse trots by lazily*

"Look, that's exactly the way how that horse galloped! Fast, huh?"

Or:

"Look, just let go of the lead line and let me canter around the trails by myself. You can just go to the barn and tend to chores until I return without any worries. What, why won't you let me? Yes, it's the first time I ride, but I've seen lots of Western movies and riding is really easy, you just kick the horse to go and pull to stop or turn!"

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.
