Goodness, I completely get when people use your stuff. Every time I spent any amount of time away from the barn I used to go to/board at, my bridle went missing several times. Beautiful leather and cowhide decor.

In the horsey world: People who have more $$ than brains (well, it does apply to regular world too, sometimes......) but....I had to go to some business formal ya da ya with the DH and one of his business associates was there, with the new trophy wife (think Barbie. Every sense of the way) Anyway, I knew they had recently gotten their girls into riding. Silly me. I asked.....so the girls, who are both under 12, riding less than a year, and daddy has bought them each top hunter ponies, which they keep at ABC barn. This barn is the type that you call up, they groom the horse, tack up the horse. You ride it-they cool it out and put the cute widdle poneh away. WHAT DO THEY LEARN? How to dial a phone? Then she says to me.....and "Suzie's" pony hurt its arm. Took me a minute.....what a noob. Glad I no longer have to associate with them.
Sounds like Martha Stewart and her friesians and people go on her blog and ask her for HORSE ADVICE?!?! She doesnt even ride faster than a walk and her barn manager does everything from saddling to cleaning tack

That doesn't bother me as much, I pasture Indie by the road just so she gets used to it. It's when I'm visibly handling or riding her along the road (which you HAVE to do to get to the trails), and people intentionally just want to get you hurt or see a reaction. I had one guy actually come feet from running us over, and we were off the road on the opposite side!

Oh! I know someone who trims her own horse's feet (horribly I might add) and she "tought" her only boarder and horse camp kids how to do it. In ONE DAY! And now she lets her boarder (a complete dumba$$) trim her horses' feet. This woman is so dumb that she makes her daughter wear a body protector to go on a trail ride. Even on a DEAD BROKE HORSE

At least she wants her daughter to stay safe :)

My horse's old owner trimmed his horses hooves himself and jacked up Joker's hooves. They weren't hard to correct I don't think though.

Similar though maybe not quite as bad. 14 yr old, showing dressage and low hunter. Mom would come out, bathe the horse, braid it, tack it up, help her daughter get dressed. Daughter would stand by and complain that mom was moving too slow. Daughter, the brat, would ride and look pretty on a push button horse/pony depending on how long his feet were at the time. Daughter would come back, toss her jacket at her mother, hand her the horse and walk away to go brag to her friends about her first place finish. Mom dutifully untacked, handwalked sweaty horse, cleaned up, packed up and then corralled her brat to take her home.

This same brat walked away with the stall open after she had put a saddle pad on the horse. The horse bolted out of the stall for whatever reason and in the process of losing the really bright, she liked flourescent yellow, saddle pad, it flew into the air and hit a horse who just happened to be cantering at that particular corner of the outdoor arena, causing him to go nuts, tossing his rider who ended up with a broken arm..the injuries could have been much more serious but the rider was a good one and managed to slow the horse's momentum down a bit before she finally came off. The girl just shrugged it off, caught her grazing horse and walked him back. A week later she did the exact same thing and had the nerve to tell off one of the stable workers for handling "her" horse when in fact he had caught the horse and was leading him back.

I was NEVER so happy to see them leave and they only did so because they found some ego stroking dressage trainer at some high brow dressage barn that meant they didn't have to associate with us "lesser ability" riders. At a local dressage show I came across this girl again and have to say I took perverse pleasure in that she not only forgot her test and rode it incorrectly but that her perfect little horse was having less than his usual perfect day. I pinned in the same class which of course had her seething that her mother congratulated me, but it was so nice, if a little mean, to see her humbled for once...not sure if she learned anything from it though.

You should see some videos on YouTube of horses getting stuck in trailer windows ;)
I think it's okay so long as the windows have those metal bars to prevent horses from sticking their head out.

Oh jeez! No I meant more of those little mesh windows.. I didn't know they actually dropped down those big ones on the sides... that's just irresponsible!
