Either they are new to horses, Or first time owners... Newbies Flat out don't know what they are doing, they are just now getting Introduced to this crazy horse world. Bet you didnt realize how policital it can be right? Well your starting to figure it out. AND how expensive they are with the hay, feed, vet farrier work and tack. OMG hang in there youll either sell the horse in a year or so or get addicted to it like a drug where the 200 or so a month is worth the feeling you get being around them.
Pretty well get the gist of horse care, But still might appear to act a bit odd in the saddle, which sometimes annoys experinced riders. Might need a mentor, but make sure its a good mentor, the wrong mentor can take you down the wrong road.
The self proclaimed "know it all"-
See these alot on horse message boards, Usaully the first person to start a flame war, instead of educating, It seems more like shoving information and opinions down the throats of people. These people feel like they have something to prove tomake theirselves Seem superior and all knowing, Some of these people are very experinced and knowleageable, but then again some people don't know squat but feel the need to prove they do to others.
The Experinced horseman.
These people have the skills and knowleage.. You can look at them ride and see that. These people can take any horse and in a matter of a month have the proforming like champions, these people usaully have been riding for a long time and have loads of experince with combined natural talent.
The well educated Horseman.
Nuteritional knowelage ? Hoof helath knowelage? Gentics? These people know their stuff, Right by the book, can tell you what minreal does what for the horse. What this feed does, What herbal rememdy keeps the flys away. Ect. Ect. Ect. List goes on, Always nice to have someone like this in your life when having horses..
The Show Person.
Knows how to gloss that coat, Spends hours grooming to perfection, Takes riding lessons or had a good mentor to perfect that seat, Horses are registered and well Conformed to the standard of the breed. Knows all about the ring, and how to proform to catch the judges eyes, can sometimes be snobby or appear snobby, but not everyone is like this.
Can anyone add? My fingers are tired just randomly thinking about all the personality types I've seen in this Horse world..
