Lack of common sense......this falls into all aspects of life, not just when horses are involved....

Horses are like chips...you can never just have one

- People who think because i am young I don't know anything about horses, but when I ask them to show me something they haven't a clue what I am talking about


-People who breed because they want to see cute foals running around, and the fail to notice that it eats, poops and sometimes you can't sell them. And they don't relize how most of those BYB horses end up..on a meat hook and in a can.


sorry I am done ranting now
Amen to these ones!

I used to get adults p*ssed at me because they'd tell me their horses couldn't be caught or couldn't ride in a bit because they'd rear or their horse just can't stand still. I walked up to that man's horses, ignored the horse that wouldn't be caught, and gave all sorts of pats and scratches to the other horses while ignoring the hard to catch horse. Guess who walked right over and let me halter him? The guy was mad that I proved him wrong. That horse that couldn't be ridden with a bit? I put a snaffle in and rode her around. Didn't have one problem with her.

-I hate it when I see these rodeo kids running around with huge bits and yanking the horses around when they obviously couldn't sit the canter without holding the horn, or steer a horse with gentle pressure, only know that legs are for asking for speed and that the bit is to make the horse turn and stop. No offense to rodeo people. I used to compete in it. It's just this is where I see this type of riding the most compared to other events.

-When people breed horses that shouldn't be bred. I don't care how much you love your mare if she has a glaring or serious conformation fault don't breed her! We've got enough fugly horses in the world we don't need more when there are dirt cheap nicely build ones waiting for a home.

-People who envy how well other horses are trained but do nothing to try get their horse trained up that well.

-People who let their horses walk all over them. It's a 1,000 pound animal. It should NOT be bossing your around.

Foolish human! We non-irkles cannot be irked by such means. Don't try to irk a non-irkle; although in the north we are referred to as irkians and confusion between the two can cause a great wave of irk to sweep across our nation.

People that treat all horses the same, then complain that the more sensitive breeds...such as Arabians...are crazy and stupid. It just makes me want to scream "Well maybe if you paid more attention to working WITH your horse instead of against him, then he wouldn't be completely terrified and confused!"

The corruption that seems to come with showing.

Trainers that insist on trying to restructure your riding when you come to try out a horse that is for sale.....SOOOO annoying!

OMG does that make me an irkable or jerkable or maybe a jerkable irken? I have to go to Walmart today I always get irked at Walmart. I need to put on my no-irkles hat or take an assperin free irkless pill.
