I was out on my horse the other day and a woman drove past.... she stopped her car in the next layby got out and then started lambasting me for using a hackamore.
I had always thought that I had very gentle hands but she said that to use such a savage bit was cruel. She then got back into her car, wound down the window and told me to wear a (swearword) helmet next time I ride my horse.

She did not notice that I run my horse barefoot as well.
All round the incident clean took the edge of what was otherwise a lovely ride
