    Oh yes there's the NON-Horse folks who don't understand what I see in horses. Manly cause I'm a guy and should be into cars/motorcycles, souping them up to go fast, four wheeling, watching or partaking on sports. "How can I spend all that time with them?", "how can you take the smell?" or "Horses are a waste of money", then the "what can you do with a horse?"

    For starters I hate sports, I don't watch, talk nor play sports. Sports are extremely boring to me. Second I like sports cars an muscle cars an fast cars, trucks, etc. but. I rather have a horse!! You know the original/real horse power. I LOVE the smell of horses and smelling like a horse. It's my one an only cologne I will wear! Plus I tell them you are all just jealous cause I'm surrounded by so many cute girls that I get to hang out with all day long and they love my attention. SO here take my "man card" I didn't want it in the first place. I'd rather be with my girls! I love my horses with all my heart, the amount of money/time it takes means nothing to me. There worth it ALL! Things us horse lovers will only understand.

    Haha! My boy friend was shocked for the amount I paid for my horse! I was getting a steal to! He use to say that riding wasn't a sport and wasn't very hard. I finally talked him into letting me give him lessons for a few months... needless to say he doesn't think that anymore! Lol

    Ugh. When people say that its isn't that hard to ride it makes me want to punch them. Funny story, my cousin made a few comments like that. Next time we went riding(dude ranch trail rides) he feel of his hors. Next time he did that, I stuck him on modello(who has a very uncomfortable gait.) and led her around for a minute or two. He was in a bit of pain for a while.

    Sorry about your dog--whatever the problem may be, hope it's resolved soon!
    I manage a farm where the owner is non horse understanding. He bought the farm for his daughter, and relies on her for all of his horse knowledge. What a bad choice! His daughter is NOT a horse person, she is merely a RIDER. So when the owner comes for a visit, he relies on this less-than-useful knowledge garnered from his also less-than-useful daughter. There have been many "incidents" resulting from dangerous practices due to a combination of laziness on their part, and the lack of a good working knowledge of equine motivations. As I am not a family member, MY advice is rarely considered, even thought they hired me because I've been managing farms since before the daughter was even born! Normally, the non-horse people's questions don't really bother me, at least they are willing to listen and learn.

    True, backyard horse, but it's when they ask but don't even listen or anything that bugs me.

    "Riding horses is easy. You pull left to go left, right to go right, and kick them to go faster."

    Why yes. That IS all it takes. When you ride a rocking horse.

    One thing I like about people who don't ride horses. They are so stupid.
    One asked me "how can riding be all that hard? All you do is si there and move your hands." Um, there is WAY more to it than that sonny. There is so much you are doing I couldn't even start the list. And once I did, it would go on FOREVER.
