Sorry for the double post but I have another non horse person peeve.
I was talking to my friend one day and I mentioned my horse, and the convo went like this:
Lyd-OMG IM SO COMING OVER TO RIDE!!!! Ya know, I used to take riding lessons!!
Me-really!? Cool!! Did you ride western or English?
Lyd-*blank look on face* wha....?
Me-*in my head* HOW DO YOU TAKE LESSONS AND NOT KNOW WHAT DISCIPLINE YOU'RE IN?!?!?!?!!!!!! *out loud* (toning down the horse stuff A LOT(!!!!)) did your saddle have a thingy to hold onto, or didn't it?
Lyd-yeah, it had one.
Me-oh so you rode western.
Lyd- yeah.....I gues....
Me-*wishing I could facepalm but didn't want to be rude* ok...
UGH!!!!! I'm guessing she rode at least once, because she knew a LITTLE bit, but ugh!!! How do you not know what western vs. english is!!!!
