    This has happened to me multiple times in my area which has a lot of "yuppies". They drive by me riding and scream out their window. I also got a lovely complaint to the SPCA because my horse were out in the rain (have coats on and shelter). A horse is not a child it lives out side and they seem not to understand that it dislikes being in a stall 24/7.

    Here's one:

    Just because my horse is big doesn't mean he's a thoroughbred. Note the very loud pinto coloring? Not something you see on thoroughbreds (I know there are some pinto TBs, but the average lay-person doesn't know that).

    We were walking down the road one day (I was leading Aires because he wasn't broke yet and my best friend was riding her Arab mare) and this older man was in his front yard as we went by. He came over to the road and said "Beautiful horse. He's huge. Is he a thoroughbred?" Ok, firstly, Aires was only about 15hh at the time. Second, he's built like a draft horse (imagine that, he's half draft). Third, he's a LOUD black and white pinto. Sadly, this guy owned three horses (one of which was a pathetic old Arab gelding with a horrible sway back, wormy belly and horrendously overgrown feet...for the first six months, we thought for sure he was a pregnant mare...then we saw him dangling one day O.o).

    Haha! I get that a lot! I'll never understand why the non rider wants on the most energetic, least mileage horse. Especially when it's the biggest horse!

    So there was this guy once who had horses but obviously didn't know anything about them. He was a "stalker" of mine, and one day was telling me proudly how his horse had thrush and how he was taking care of it.

    Dude, thrush is not impressive.

    We had this problem at the Girl Scout horse camp I worked at. We would pair the girls with a horse for their 30 minute "lesson" and inevitably someone would end up in tears because they didn't get the big, pretty horse they wanted (which was usually Foolish, our 15.3hh 8yo TB who we only put more experienced girls on because she could be a handful). Or they'd want to ride Paleface, our 15.2hh QH who was the lead horse for trail rides and WAS NOT kid-friendly at all. Heck, she wasn't terribly people-friendly (she liked me and the head wrangler...all the other wranglers she merely tolerated). Finally, we just ended up telling the girls that she didn't like kids and would buck them off, which was why only us wranglers could ride her.

    Here is one that I have to deal with a lot.. road riding to get to trails. Yes the horses me and my friend ride are great on roads, but it makes ME nervous when some cars go really fast by us... umm... HELLO WE ARE WEARING NEON vests.. maybe you could SLOW DOWN??? Its either the speeders or once we were returning from a trail ride and we were on the road and this old lady was turning into her driveway and saw us and so I (leading) stopped and waited for her to go but she just sat there in the road and didnt wave us on, so I just stayed put. Then she FINALLY pulled in about 5-10 feet and just stopped. I was really confused becasue she was at the end of her driveway just sitting there, but we passed her anyway. Uuughhhh... people.... -_-

    Had an a$$-hat on a Harley rev his engine less than 50 feet from me, BEHIND us, as I was crossing the road after a trail ride on a horse that my old BO used on his dude string. Poor Reno spooked hard and took off toward the barn (about 500ft in front of us) at a dead gallop. My best friend had crossed the road in front of us and watched the whole thing. She thought I was going to come off for sure because my stirrups were too long (couldn't make them any shorter) and the saddle was WAY too big for me (only saddle that fit Reno). Surprised her when I not only stayed on, but got him back under control within 100ft.
