One of my other cousins, who is this big, wanna be tough guy all tattooed up, annoys me the most out of anyone I know. Every time he sees me he has to make some comment about how dumb horses are or say "The only thing a horse needs is a shotgun to the head." and he just says these things randomly to try to get to me! Usually I don't say anything but sometimes I'll lash out at him. He's 38 years old. I hope I don't sound like this person who hates everyone... because there is only 4 people that do this to me intentionally. Even if you don't love horses, or they aren't your life. You should still have an appreciation for them because our society and lives would not be the same today if we didn't have horses.

Horses are my life. Everything about horses I love and everything about the lifestyle I love. Just respect that.

The place where I board my horse also offers ponied rides for children and non-riders, but by appointment only. So it sometimes happens that people visit us not by appointment and ask for a ride. If I'm near, I then explain that it is not possible as all the horses have worked already/are in the pastures/are busy/whatever other reason makes appointments necessary. Often it happens so that I am leading, grooming or riding my own horse at the same moment. So I get asked - Well, why can't we have a ride on that horse? Oh, he's private? What, are you stingy or something, why can't you share?

Ugh. Sorry, he's not a tourist attraction.

Most of mine probably have already been said.

Every time I say something like "I rode all day yesterday" or "I feel a little sore from riding" people take it out of context. It probably doesn't help that my friends are disgusting perverts lol but it is so hard to have a conversation with them about horses without them making dirty jokes the whole time.

Also when people say that riding is easy, even though majority of them can count on one hand how many times they have ridden a horse(on dead broke horses). My dad being one of them. It's super easy for him until he sits on my horse for all of 5 minutes, then complains for an hour how sore he is. He also says horseback riding shouldn't be in the Olympics and dressage is just "sitting still on a horse looking mad" because the horse does all of the work :(

One more haha. My friend "loves" horses and is constantly asking me about horse stuff, and after I say something he tells me what his dad said/did when he had horses and how he did stuff right. I don't mind answering questions, in fact I love sharing knowledge of horses, but being told I am wrong every time because that isn't what his dad did 25 years ago in Mexico when he had horses annoys me. I am fine being told I am wrong(I like to know) but when it comes from someone who couldn't get on or off my horse without help, that first rode MY horse less than 6 months ago, it makes me mad.

I think horse people are the most attacked people out of any lifestyles there are! I used to think the exact same things, horse people are weird and psychos. I never would have thought a couple years ago I would be one! but I can say, that ever since I became a horse lover, I have never been more happy and confident on what I want to do with my life....I've always been a big outdoors guy. Hunting, shooting, guns, camping, fishing.....but horses has made it to the top of my list of passions and lifestyles! I have to say I've never had a relationship with anything before more pure and understanding before in my life, than with a horse. My horse (not "technically" mine) understands me, is honest, affectionate, and loves me. He doesn't care what I'm wearing, or how well I play in sports (I do play baseball and run cross-country, but I'm not an "all star") or anything like that. It only sees your attitude, emotions, personality. They see what's pure and really matters in a person, you can't lie to a horse, and they can't lie to you. IMO it's one of the purest and honest relationship nature can give, and it's truly a magical and genuine thing...

WHOO! Sorry, I felt a little long winded tonight! don't take that the wrong way, I still like girls and intend to marry a girl. Not a horse. Haha, anyway there it is....

I know what you mean about being bullied for liking horses. Of course I'm going to love my horse, she's made my first two years of showing really successful. Luckily the kid who would make fun of me moved to Newfoundland. I feel bad for the Newfies on the other side of the country.

Don't feel too bad... They can more than handle themselves. In fact, I'm thinking your former tormentor is getting some just desserts. Hee Hee!
