That is so me. I've asked my hubby on numerous occasions to retro-fit me a shopping cart with a battering ram attachment on the front

Also, people who stick beginners on horses and then have the nerve to tell me to "not run into them" yeah
Whenever I get annoyed by this, I remember myself, learning to ride (trot, canter, steer, anything) and being so shy and desperate, trying not to disturb anyone better than me and feeling guilty for any moment of almost running into somebody. I used to learn in quite a crowded place so I felt like this very often. Now I'm more experienced and I completely understand the new riders who aren't doing this on purpose. Yes, their actions might as well disturb my plans of the day, then again - how on earth will they get better in learning to ride a horse by themselves, if the more experienced riders are always there and not to be disturbed? So I just try to breathe slow and be understanding.

It wasn't so much the rider :) or the horse.. it was the person "teaching" on the ground pushing the horse to the rail. She wasn't an instructor, she was just a lessee of a boarder who wanted her friend to ride. Which is fine but when I was trotting on the rail, she pushed the beginner's horse to the rail by walking towards it, and so we had to circle (we were trotting) pretty tightly because I couldn't ask for a bigger trot we'd hit them and I couldn't just make him walk because it takes him awhile to do so. He's a greenie, So that's when the person on the ground, not the beginner, made that comment.

I mean.. horse 101, pressure release. You walk towards a horse looking big, it's going to move away from you.

It just bugged me, especially after the fact they had a dog loose in the arena which didn't help Sky relax at all. It was just an overall bad experience, but we did fine.

When people advertise their horses as "So and So" mare or gelding. Then you look at the pedigree and that horse is on the back of the papers or sometimes not even on them.

agreed I dont like that either.. my mare is impressive bred but she is hypp n/n and I hate that people try to push off hypp n/h horses as fine.. yes they can be fine but there is always the risk of something happening.. I saw on cl someone is selling a horse that had epm, and survived and is trying to sell it for way more than Id pay for a horse that may never be sound again, or have issues its whole life

Make it idiot proof and someone will make a better idiot.

I don't like that either. What made me think of it was seeing a horse on CL with the title Dinkys Red Man Mare, my horse is a grandson, I was curious so I looked her up and he's on the back of the papers. Sadly there's good horses up front.

People that feel they have the right when I let them ride my horse, that they can ride it however they want. UH NO. I gladly lent you my horse, I could have said NO, and let you sit on the sidelines while the rest of the team enjoys getting to ride for the AQHA. Kick my horse that hard again, I'll equal the force to your face.

If your pad is crooked. Fix it.

Warming up your horse does not mean trot for 5 strides then take of at a full gallop. Ever wonder why your horse pulls up lame a lot?!

Don't beat the crap out of your horse infront of me and get mad at me for screaming at you. Why can you get mad and I can't?

People who think they have the right to comment on you / your horse.

My horse, my way, if you don't like it, don't watch!

Not horse related, but people who try to get onto elevators before letting the people wanting to exit the elevator off.

Oh, and people who proceed to play loud music and jump around on the floor above you late at night. I'm sorry, I thought quiet time started at 10 pm, and it's now 11:30 pm. My mistake for 1) thinking that quiet time actually meant quiet time and 2) trying to go to bed "early" (11 pm) because I have to get up at 5 am for five days in a row each week. My bad for the misunderstanding.
