I don't think any of this to be snooty or stuck up; I asked a lot of these "dumb" questions myself when I first started; but hey I look back and laugh at myself a lot too. I'm sure a lot of people thought I was a bit dense considering I didn't even know how to groom a horse five years ago
Lord forbid the first time I tried trotting even! Pretty sure every horseman on that farm was facepalming at the time I screamed when the quiet QH I was on went into a nice little trot, back then I swore I was "galloping."
Everyone has their newb moments; and it's funny to hear about some of the things people ask or say... makes me feel a little less out of the norm :p
