I know this has been done loads of times before but I love reading theese stories, so here's mine....
I have a friend who is into spiritual stuff and crystals and angels and so on, (She apparently used to ride at school, but if i'm honest I don't really believe her) well I took her to the riding stables one day because she wanted to watch my lesson (I don't mind, another camera to watch videos back on later ) She was looking around and stroking some of the horses when she turned to me, pointed at a hanging salt lick and asked:
"What's that?" Knowing exactly what she was thinking I replied
"It's a salt lick, you thought it was a crystal didn't you?"
"Yeah, I though it was rose quarts...."
I just wanted to laugh picturing the horses meditating in their stables with a big chunk of rose quarts to help out their love lives
I don't believe that she rode at school beacause when I asked her a question from a horse quiz that was: 'What is the strap that holds the saddle on?' (pretty basic stuff ) she answered the multiple choice question by the process of elimination. And 'girth' happened to be the last on the list
Also one of my teachers told me she used to ride aswell, so I was talking to her about my pony, who's bay, and made a comment about how 'bay obviously being darker than chestnut' thinking she'd just understand. She then replied:
"Oh, I didn't know that. I thought chestnut was darker...." I corrected her and just moved on (though knowing otherwise I found it a little bit funny.
I told my friend what my teacher had said and laughed a little when telling her, only to be cut down by a snippy reply of:
"JUST BECAUSE YOU KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT HORSES DOSEN'T MEAN EVERYONE ELSE DOES! I DIDN'T KNOW THAT EITHER!" I was shocked because i've never claimed to know everything about horses.
Thanks if you read the whole post
And please share your stories about non horse people
