Okay here goes:
1. People who can't control their horses so they automatically use a harsher bit
2. People who tell me what bit my horse needs
3. People who are not my trainer that tell me what way my horse needs to be ridden when they have never seen her before in their life
4. When someone says that they can hit a horse because its "just a horse"
5. When people jump their horses too high for their ability

Probs think of more later lol xx

Whoever said "stupid people" pretty much covered it. For me anyways.

Oh yeah.

Hypocrites drive me nuts.

People who cannot discuss an issue rationally. I really don't see how you can solve real problems if you refuse to dicuss something logically. It's one thing if you want to rant, just don't pretend you want to come up with solutions then.

People who say that humans aren't animals.

People who treat animals like they're people. I think that it is a great disservice to an animal to treat it like you would a person. Then they wonder why their "insert animal type here" acts all crazy.

People who let their dogs become fat/obese.

Hmmm... I could probably go on and on.

That was me. Covered all bases and saved me from writing a novel.

People who ride their horse once a month or less then wonder why he's impossible to catch or is acting crazy.

How about when people have a problem with their horse and they ask for advice but then won't listen to ANY of it. Or they just think of reasons why they can't follow the advice.

errr I hate that too ! A girl at my barn has a horse that broke his withers & she tries to jump him like 5ft. He hangs his knees soooo bad over just 2ft, I think he can't physically lift them up any higher. He's just not that athletic of a horse any ways....it drives me crazy bc she gets mad at him when he stops at jumps or catches a leg & breaks poles.....its just so obvious he isnt capable of it....

This one relates to horses only in that when people do it, they look like horses asses to me -- rapidfire, loud, mouth-open, gum-chewing! For some inexplicable reason lots of women around here seem to think that this makes them look trendy and cool (or something). I just don't get it. PLEASE keep your mouth shut when you have gum in there!

(On second thought, I take it back. I don't want to insult any horses!)

I hate when I have to listen to people sit and claim to be trainers when it's obvious they aren't.
I hate when people sit and bash something they have proved/admitted to know nothing/very little about.
I hate when people bash someONE they have only seen ride a handful of times or are basing their opinions solely off of someone else's observations.
I hate when people say that so and so is mean/abusive to their horse because they did this, this, and this without even understanding the situation.
I hate when people say using whips/spurs is cruel.
I hate when people say cathedrals, spades, twisted snaffles, etc are evil torture devices.
I hate when people make un-educated observations.
I hate when people use the argument "if your horse is so broke why do you ride in a -inserthighportedbithere-"
I hate when people pick the worst example of something and base their opinions solely off of that.
