    Thanks Guitarist. I'm not sure my poor mum has realised yet that horses don't work like that!

    That riding a pony does not mean I am childish or cruel...

    Yes, I'm 5'6". I'm also not a good rider (yet) and only 115lb, so of course I'm put on the14hh and 13hh ponies because I'm the only one small enough to ride them.

    I told someone how I rode ponies, and they started baby talking me! 'aww does the wittle girl want her wittle pony?'

    Someone else was trying to convince me I was too big for the ponies.

    Oh god....
    That just reminded me of something. At my first ever riding school, I was forced to ride a 10hh Shetland pony when I was 8 years old!!!! So yeah, being 5'6" and riding 13-14hh ponies is totally fine IMO.

    That's why I moved riding schools that exact year!

    Oh boy, I got some

    Yaaaa that black horse in the purple blanket locked up in a run is NOT the wild stallion.
    Just because it's muddy does not mean my yard is full of horse poop.
    No he is not bucking, he sneezed.

    One time me and mt friend that are like 5foot7 went to see the races and they were giving out pony rides on this old mini well we just wanted to pet it nd the lady was like NO GET IN THE BACK OF THE LINE AND WAIT YOUR TURN AND YOU HAVE TO PAY A DOLLAR. And I'm all like meowwwww.

    Haha and not just because he's a mule does not make I'm lazy or stubborn

    Nd just because I own cows does not make me a bull fighter hahaaha
    And just because I was learning how to jump does not mean I should go in the Olympics

    Sorry 4 double post

    Or the people who say, "He's a STANDARDBRED?? He looks way too pretty for a Standardbred." "Why do you think that, Standardbreds are stunning horses" "well, my friend who has horses told me all Standardbreds are ugly."

    I love Standies. They're amazing horses.

    "he's only coming over to you because he knows you have treats!" I don't give Luca treats. He will get pushy if I do.

    And there's this really annoying man who always goes around pretending to be a total horse know it all. Just cos his wife has two horses. Here are some of my "adventures" with these people.

    I was messing around with Luca, running around on the exercise paddock with the lunge clipped onto his halter. We were having a lot of fun, me running in front of Luca, Luca trotting to catch up to me and then trotting by my shoulder. Then comes that man, let's name him J, with his car. He stops it and asks me' "are you trying to lunge it?" IT? IT!!!?!?!? He knows perfectly well that Luca is a gelding. So I just replied' "no, I'm just having fun with IT. I mean...HIM."
    The worst thing is, he always calls him an IT, not any of the other horses.

    Those people have always had problems with me owning Luca. They had horses in the first place, and they want to be the only ones. When I told them about Luca, they came over to see. He was in terrible shape, but it was just his first day here, and he was malnourished when we got him. So...then he says,"He's skinny." Me: "I know, I just got him, what am I supposed to do against that right now?" him: "give it back." me: "no thanks, I'd rather get him happy and healthy again." him: "you know it's hard. You're not experienced enough. He'll just lose condition." ahem.....lose condition you say? Yeah...look how skinny he is now...I did a bad, bad job.

    And the other day, we were telling the woman, let's call her F, that we were going to look at a horse for my sister, a 16 year old gelding. She said, " I wouldn't get such an OLD horse, it will just collect lots of vet bills. You won't be able to do much with him because he's so OLD." One of her horses is 15 almost 16 and the other is 20. She rides them once a week, including galloping and jumping.

    Those people
