    Pessoa gag bits and people using them even after they know how they work

    People going barefoot to ''sae'' the horse but still think it's ok for said horse to be lame for a couple of years before the feet has ''toughened up'' enough..Especially if the horse is old and has bee sgoed its whole life. (I'm for barefoot but not to whatever cost it takes)

    People thinking their ways are the only right ones. (I have opinions but I try to respect others too especially if they'veput some mind effort thinking about it)

    Cushionlike treeless saddles that doesnt do their job (not good treeless saddles tho)

    People chaning bits instead of fixing the problem, if any problem is reason to the change.

    People who say standardbreds are worthless riding horses

    Uh...I can't sort the rest out but there's plenty of them:P

    Oh. The worst of all..
    People who doesn't think for themself..I mind less if they think backwards but try, than f they got it right bt just blindly followed tradition/whatever.
    Like ''He's so good he's always right and he can't be wrong I'll just do as he say'' or ''It's always been like that''..
    Of course I don't mind doing something you might not b completely sure of, like ''hmm..this person is usually right an I trust him, so lets try and see even if I'm not really sure about this thing''.. but think, use your brains...

    Ok I'll shut up now:P

    People who buy their kid a colt so that they can grow up together PUHLEEZE!!!!!!!

    People who think that just because they have a $10,000.00 horse at a trainers 11 months out of the year have the better horse. (yeah, they got beat by a $500.00 dollar reining horse that belonged to my mom and trained by my sister THAT WAS FUNNNY)

    People who have a stud just so they can say "I have a stallion"

    People who don't take into consideration a horses quirks

    Horse show parents who berate their kids while in the ring especially the ones that don't know how to ride themselves.

    Quarter horses that fourbeat instead of canter UGGH

    People who get roaring drunk and try to ride IMO alcohol doesn't mix with cars boats or horses

    People who "COWBOY a horse" and you all know what I mean (see above)

    People who don't expect their horse to behave on the ground then get hurt and blame the poor horse manners people manners

    Well I could go on and on but am out of time

    But that was fun

    People that take a 1000 pd animal and talk to it like its a 3 pd toy poodle, and refuse to correct their horse when its running all over them, because "he didn't mean to do it"

    People that treat their horses like they should be in the house. I understand blanketing a horse in freezing weather, but putting them in the stall and putting a blanket on them because its in the 60's is wrong.

    People who think that it requires gadgetry to control a horse.

    People who think that if you use a gadget at all in training then you're "abusing" the horse.

    People who don't understand that there is a purpose for a curb bit, and that when used correctly they can be great tools.

    People who think that every horse must wear shoes/eat grain.

    People who think that no horse needs shoes/requires grain.

    People who look at someone trying to work with a rank horse and laugh and say how much fun the horse is having or how pretty he is when he rears/bucks/kicks out.

    People with major and unaddressed horsey behavioral problems telling me (as I sit sideways in the saddle, my horse standing happily on a loose rein)that I'm doing something wrong in my training.

    Show judges who judge every horse in an open division as a foundation QH (or tb, or pony, or...)

    And... to finish...
    People who think that The Black Stallion is real, and that their first horse can be a rank Arab stallion and that within a week they will be galloping tackless down the beach.

    Wow, all of these peeves start with people... I must be antisocial, too!
    Fun thread!

    I hate it when people think its abuse to get on a 2yo horse

    Or when people can't see the benefits that jumping has on dressage work

    AND lastly when people buy their kid a big expensive horse that the kid falls off everytime they ride & refuse to have the kid ride a plain but safe horse

    I hate people who think the only form of training is beating their horse into submission or running it into the ground.

    I hate people who prefer fear over trust.

    Idiot kids who want to teach their horse to rear because "it looks so cool!".

    Ok I havea list so pardon me for all your about to read

    People who think my horse should be shoed because it will make him work better

    People who think that every horse needs a blanket

    People who think that they can stand next to a horse and not get bit, kicked, stepped on or nudged really hard

    People who think a 1200 lb animal isnt strong

    People who think all you have to do is hop on and away you go

    People who think that since I don't keep my reins tight on my horse I don't know how to ride

    People who think that if you don't have a show horse your nothing

    People who think appys are the worst breeds and that if you get near their horse, it will become nasty.
        10-15-2009, 02:24 PM
    People who buy unseasoned/untrained horses for their unseasoned/untrained kids

    People who think their way is the only way and are pushy or disrespectful about it

    People who use tack that doesn't fit their horse properly

    People who use their reins to make up for faults in their own balance/seat

    Gosh, this is kinda fun!!!!
