This is true im extremely bonded to him, and I don't think either of them know what that feels like since they keep selling their horses for new ones. That makes me feel alot better looking at it from the point of view that their just jealous in a sense, not something to brag about but kinda makes me feel better about the situation, it wouldn't even bother me if they did get a high quality horse, it never would have in the first place, only thing that bothered me was they were doing it to one up the Twinkster. But I guess that don't matter, im sure in a couple months they'll want to do jumping again and go get jumping horses. Girls can never make their minds up :/ Their 19yro each, twin sisters.

High-five, Waybueno!

I know exactly what you're going through, and I know how it hurts sometimes. Lakeside (where I live) is extremely horsey ( and SMALL. What a beatiful combo), so if you know kids at school with horses, theres a pretty high chance that you board with them, show with them, compete, trail ride, whatever with them. It's small and everyone knows eacother, if you catch my drift.

That makes it extremely hard for me, because my horse is my buisness, and I don't want what I do with her, how I'm training her, or whatever, strewn across school. And guess what? It happens. All the time. I know these two girls, their sophmores this year, and they have really nice barrel horses. They've gotten every horse they've ever wanted served to them on golden platters and have never had to work for anything. And they think it's REALLY fun to sit and watch me train my mare, and pick out everything I do wrong, everything my horses does wrong, and everything we lack in, and compair it to their extremely well trained, older horses. And to top it all off, they spread it all around school so everyone else knows too. And it drives me nuts, because I worked for six years in able to get where I'm at, to have the horse I have, and the things I have, and I never got help from anyone. I worked, and I worked REALLY freaking hard, so It's pretty acurate to say that my BLOOD, SWEAT, and TEARS, are in that horse. So you can bet your socks that when they tease her, compair her to their horses, ridicule her, and comment about how ugly she is, I want to rip their faces off.

The girls you're dealing with sound an awful lot like the girls I have to deal with. If they want to compete against you, say "Go for it," because I bet you fifty bucks your horse will kick their asses. And if they want to talk ****, talk it back. Build your horse up. Hey, you'll feel better, and I bet they won't see it coming. =)

I totally respect you right now for not flattening their faces. Honestly im the aggressive type and I probably would have resorted to violence with my fists of fury if they were talking crap about how I train my horse. Thank god both girls are ridiculously afraid of me and wont talk crap like that because they know ill find out and it helps that none of us go to school anymore. Yeah I believe my horse can kick any horse they gets butt and even if he can't at least I know I didnt pay the cost of a new car to get him and go as far as we've gone :]

That's the spirit!!!!!


Hahahahahaha. I don't really like conflict... I'm the kind of person who gets walked all over because I don't know how to say "F*ck off". It's easier for me to just keep my head low, and ignore everyone... Even if it means pain for me. I seriously wish I was more like you. There have been so many girls I wish I could just punch in the face. Maybe then they'd respect me a little more. LOL. I'm the exact opposite with my horse though. She knows how she's supposed to act, and she knows what happens when she decides to dick around. =D

Ahhh, girls can be so stupid and have more money than they have sense. Heck, Blue (my horse) is a barrel horse and eventer and I paid $600 for him! The thing is, you are a real horse owner. You have put training and love into your horse not just showing and trying to be better than anyone (major props for that). That's the bad thing with the horse business, everyone tries to be BETTER than everyone else when they should try to be creating a bond and showing that bond off to the world (:

Have you ever heard the expression, 'The most truest form of flattery is imitation'. It really fits here.

That being said, however, I would not give one care to what someone is doing who changes horses like they do underwear. If anything, I would feel sorry for them. They will not ever have a true bond with a horse. They will not ever know how great it is to overcome an obstacle or training issue. They will not ever know the feeling of success that comes with the hard work and dedication that most of us put into our horses.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not against selling horses when a situation is not good. However, most people that have to sell, do so for serious reasons, not on whims. Their parents aren't giving them a gift at all, they are hurting any chance those girls have at learning what it really means to be a horse owner. They view horses as disposable at every whim..it's sad if you think about it.

My own daughter wanted to learn to ride and get her own horse. She mucked many a stall, scrubbed water bucks, learned to feed, groom and tack before she could even take riding lessons. She also spent time with all the horses...not just the perfect ones that were super easy to ride. I wanted her to learn that horses are a helluva lot of work and can't be picked up and put down whenever the notion strikes you. She now owns a horse, but she does so with the appreciation that horses are extremely hard work, none of them are perfect and that they require lots and lots of time and even more patience.

Until you can learn those lessons, what does horse ownership mean anyway?
