Failing to train a horse to do simple tasks because you 'don't want to hurt or cause him to get upset'...
Those "horse People" who claim to know everything about everything about horses, training, breeding, etc, when in reality they don't have a clue.
People who try to push a certain trainer on everyone, just because of the results they've had.
People who break a horse, and claim it's been trained in 'natural horsemanship'. There is a difference between 'bucking a horse out' and showing him what you want...duh!
People who are inexperienced purchasing a just as inexperienced horse, regardless of whether it's 'first horse' or not... I know people who've been riding for years, but still couldn't take on a 'greenie' horse, and yet one friend did just that...needless to say, she doesn't have that horse anymore.
"The ideal horseman has the courage of a lion, the patience of a saint, and the hands of a woman..."
