Ow.

Yeah. Shark fin withers grind my gears, too. The guy I'm riding for now, well for the last four years, has a knack for finding those mountain bred beasts. Everyone else can hop on on hot summer afternoons bareack and laze around the fields. Not me. Not if I want to be able to move later and not hit the ER!

Ya.....seems some people are quick to judge....even when they haven't even used or touched a certain piece of equipment.....draw reins are a good example.

Ok, I cannot stand people who have saddles that don't fit properly, decide just to double pad and then wonder why their horse is bucking and has a sore back.
Also can't stand people who think horse people are rich and snotty, not every horse person has a stick up their rear and seriously, horses are expensive so if I have one then I am probably more broke then the average person!

While agree the average horse owner is broke, I find we do tend to have a pretty awful attitude. Not quite as bad as dog breeders/showers...but close.
