Yes sad but true, Worst are the Hollywood educated types, who think horses all act like they see in Movies/TV. Umm no they do think and have a mind of their own... and NO they always won't do as you ask of them. Once they get on a horses back act all tough, cause "It's SO easy" Can almost figure they'll be eating dirt and the horse will be back at the barn on it's own. Worst is when they wont listen on not putting their foot in the stirrup so far. If ya fall, you'll get hung up and can be dragged.
One guy who I remember shouted I'm a real man now, I felt bad for cause he got the bounciest horse of the bunch. Lets just say he was squealing like a sissy when his "other brains" were smacking the saddle over and over. Not so easy is it? What was that about how much a real man you are? I so felt like saying that.

Wow you should have! Man I hate people that think that! Sure you can teach them tricks but they won't automatically act like that!

I may seem small, but if you mess with my horse, I will break out a level of crazy that will make your nightmares seem like a happy place.

When your horse poops in front of someone and they're all "EWWWW!! Look he's taking a crap!!" OMG people grow up!

When people think a horse should live in a barn (and this applies to some horse people too)

When people hear you have a horse and immediately tell you about the worst horse experience they ever had...either the horse bit them, was crazy, kicked them, or jumped a fence while they were riding...for this I blame their over-active imaginations, and the so-called horse people who will throw anybody up on their semi-trained backyard horse and just let 'em go and see what happens.

What's wrong with that? You keep horses your way, and others will keep them their way. My boys have stalls, but they're only used when the weather's bad. I personally don't believe in making an animal stay outside when it's cold, windy, and rainy/snowing.

What I dislike is when someone with a year or two, maybe less, in horses thinks they know more than I do, who have had them for 3 decades. Nobody ever knows everything about horses, but the noobs tend to think they know more than the truly experienced for some reason.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!
