Getting annoyed with myself when I come off in front of others yet I can laugh it off when I'm on my own.
Not wearing my body protecter when I need the support for my back and slouching in the saddle when I have a bad back so I should be sitting straight.
Not trying turning a horse when it's bolting and going straight to trying to stop the horse by pulling without thinking about it.

You honestly beat your horse with a branch?

I was guilty of getting fed up way too fast with horses, but now I have ALOT of patience.

I'm loosing my temper very easily unfortunately. Trying to manage that by counting (1, 2, ....). It somewhat helps, but not always. Also I'm getting too upset when things go wrong (like she throws the buck, or does something perfectly fine today and like never heard about it next day).

P.S. I don't borrow other people stuff (never without permission) and hate people using mine without asking.

I hada four year old mare who was freaking out at a show and I kept getting mad at her and smacked her with a crop everytime she moved. I feel incredibly bad about that and I think how stupid I was. In my defense, I was 12, I had been on the road for a day and a night, hadn't slept much and was dealing with a naughty four year old. :/

Oh, btw I don't beat my horse when I'm loosing my patience. I just start yelling at the people around or start walking with the horse like crazy.

I borrow stuff without asking, but I always put it back!

One thing I feel bad about, is when my fly spray ran out, I used someone elses without asking. But at the time, the boarders NEVER came up to see there horses! So, someone had to use it..

I see that I'm not alone when I say I lose my temper. As patient as horse people have to be, we can't be all the time!

This isn't a pet peeve of mine, but it would probably bother other people; I love to ride barefoot, esp. on trails (when I ride in the hot southwestern summer months boots are just a disgusting thought).

^^^ Me too, I've tried to stop being around the horses barefoot though. Have to be a good example for my niece, she's only 5....
