"I saw this awesome picture today of a horse hugging his owner with his front leg. If I had a horse I would totally teach it to hug me like that. It was so sweet."

I usually take a cab to the barn I ride at and the driver saw a girl in the ring cantering and she said "look its bucking!"

As soon as someone figures out I have a horse, the immediate response is: "Oh, well you know so-and-so then. She/he is selling/breeding/buying/training/shipping her/his/their/other people's horses." Uh, no, sorry. I don't know every other person in a 200 mile radius that has an interest in horses.

My husbands nephew was telling me a story the other day about these two horses he saw in a field. He said, "I don't remember what kind they were, you know what I'm talking about. They are tall and brown."
I just looked at him and started laughing.

"Oh, you show horses, how many trophies do you have?"

Lol, yes I know you can get trophies in high up things, but when I say I only have one, they treat me like im the worst rider ever, until I explain to them that we get ribbons, where they always have the response "well, id still rather have a trophie then a ribbon".

My horse lost a shoe, and when I told my non-horsey friend, her advice was to take him to the hoofery!

My mom, who is definitely not a horse person always makes me laugh:

"Why don't you but blankets on them at night?! Won't they be uncomfortable when they lay down?"

"You should put blankets on them, its getting chilly!"
"Mom its 50 degree's. They're fine. They have this thing called fur."

"Why don't you let him out to play with her? They obviously want to play."
...Oh yeah they really want to "play" lol

Another favorite is when people wonder why I use different saddles on different horses. "Saddles are all the same." Ha! I wish...

I was recently on a trial ride at a camp, and when we passed by a horse in a field wearing a fly sheet, someone from the back of the line called out "why's that horse got a bed-sheet on him?" HAHA!!!!

I had a friend ask me what kind of riding I did. I told him I jumped my horse. He asked me why I would jump over my horse. Lol I had to explain that I sat on the horse while he jumped over objects.

I also had a kid ask me what kind of horse I had. I told him I had a Thoroughbred. He then replied that he understood it was a Thoroughbred, but what kind of Thoroughbred? I stared at him dumbly and he told me he had a pure bred dog. It was a Golden Retriever. He thought a Thoroughbred just meant the horse was a pure bred horse. Hilarious. His face was priceless when I explained that a Thoroughbred is a breed. Lol

Saranda, I also was a guide for trail riders and I got some crazy questions and stories also! Your post made me laugh.

As a farrier the two things I get all the time from non-horse people:

1. Don't the nails hurt? A. Why would I do something to a horse that hurts. B. If it did hurt do you think anyone could do it?

2. Have you ever been kicked? - Yes. *gasp!*
