What ticks me off is when people at my barn do nothing but the bare minimum for their horses. There's one chick there that takes her pony out, rides him, then tosses him back out. That's it. She MIGHT groom him occasionally. She's also way too big for the poor 12hh pony that she originally bought for her daughter. She acts like she's the one in charge and she can't even ride to save her life. I feel really bad for the poor fools who take lessons from her.
There's also a guy with two mares whom he never takes care of. The horses' stalls get cleaned about once every couple months, and that's only when his daughters do it. His youngest girl asked me how I keep my horses so clean. I was like, "Um... I groom them." O_o The same guy also leaves Taco Bell wrappers and cups lying everywhere, and if he does throw something away, it's in the wrong bin. They're clearly marked "TRASH", "RECYCLABLES", and "METAL". It doesn't get any easier than that, but it's just too much for his pea-brain to compute. It's annoying as hell.
