    Y'all are cracking me up.

    If you smack my horse as hard as you can on the rear, it doesn't necessarily mean she's going to take off at a gallop. You may, however, get a close up view of the underside of her hooves.

    Just because she's pinto doesn't make her a paint.

    Palomino is NOT a breed.

    YES, both boy horses and girl horses need their "bits" cleaned. Get over it.

    A horse standing in the rain does is not neglect, it's just a horse standing in the rain.

    No, the horn isn't there to hang on to, and an English saddle is not broken.

    Yes! I was at Fleet Farm the other day, and there were some bumper stickers and they were like "I love my Palomino", and that's not 'weird' but the others weren't like "I love my chestnut," or " I love my blue roan" the others were like "I love my saddlebred" or "I love my Shetland pony". I was really confused. I wonder if they ACTUALLY thought that Palomino was a breed! It still confuses me sometimes, because people are like palominos a breed! Then others are like, "Naw, it's just a color!"

    Just because I can ride doesn't mean I don't need lessons. I tell my friends that I am taking riding lessons and I get, "But you already know how to ride!" Umm, yeah, sure! But I want to learn specific disciplines and I also need to learn proper terms and ways of doing things.

    There is more to riding than just jumping on a horse and being able to stay on.

    Heck yeah!!! If my horse jumped at my level of skill ability right now in the hunter/jumper discipline- 9 out of 10 times I would either: fall on my butt, Toby would refuse, and I would probably still fall off, or any number of bad things may happen.

    Horses don't (usually) respond to "Hi pretty pony! Will you plleeeeaaassseee w/t/c?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? I'll give you an extra special helping of carrots!" (I kinda learned that the hard way ;D)

    Just because you rode a "bucking bronco" (in actuality it was a horse that was trotting and you fell off) when you were 12 years old doesn't mean that you can ride my crazy nutcase horse!!!! Well, you could, if you'd care to do the superman over my horse's head!!!

    I didn't read all of these so forgive me if I say something that has already been said.

    "Yes, I have 12 horses" "How many pairs of shoes (or whatever) do you own"?

    "yes, those are full grown horses" (we have Paso Finos so they are on the smaller side"

    "yes, they are a lot of work but so worth it"

    "Yes we ride horses in our indoor arena"

    "No we don't ride all of them, some are broodmares, some are too young or to old and why do I have to explain this?"

    Rant over LOL

    "No, that is not a pony. Amado is just very tall." 6'4" on my Paso Fino with stirrups set for me... 5'6".


    Amado was still in training so no comments about his ahhhhh... lack of skill. Notice his new boots?

    People have probably already posted most of these, but...

    Do what I tell you when you're in my barn! I'm not nagging you or bossing you around, I'm trying to keep you from getting hurt!!

    Horses can see through flymasks. They are not out in the pasture blindfolded.

    Crops are not evil or used to beat a horse. The popping sound they make is the main motivation. Same idea with the lunge whip - the snapping noise is the motivation.

    Horses are flight animals by nature, and their first instinct when threatened is to run. Slamming doors, yelling, running around, etc. are generally percieved as threats even to a 'bombproof' horse.

    Do not hit head shy horses in the face - ever!!! (Someone has done this at my barn recently)

    Don't expect to jump on a horse and be able to gallop around like a cowboy.

    Buying a foal for your kid because 'they'll grow up together' is the worst idea ever. It's not like a puppy or kitten.

    When you stand at the gate, the pretty horseys will not come galloping over and allow you to pet them even if you click at them and shout, "Here, horseys!"

    Certain horses are on strict feeding schedules. Do not feed them ANYTHING unless someone has given you permission.

    Just because you rode your cousin's pony every summer as a kid does not mean you are qualified to ride mine.

    Leave your spurs and your big belt buckle at home. You're going to be on a lead or lunge line your first few lessons and probably won't even get to steer.

    Don't come to the barn in flip flops or heels if you plan on being anywhere near a horse. This category also includes any clothes you like or wearing makeup.

    I realize I stink. Do you expect me to smell like strawberries and cream coming from being at the barn for five hours?

    If you plan to begin riding, wear the correct clothing! Shorts, tank tops, those slippery nylon pants, sneakers, sandals, camisoles, crop tops, etc. are not acceptable! A few have exceptions when bareback riding.

    Riding is hard work. I do not just sit in the saddle and let the horse do all the work.

    Horses are shameless. They pass gas loudly, all the time, and threateningly as you pick out their back hooves.

    Imagine a stranger came up to you and slapped you between the eyes/across the nose. You would react the same way the horse just did when you did that.

    That's all for now...I think...

    THIS lol the first time my bf was there when I gave the horses a bath and cleaned my gelding sheath, he was like what kind of SH*T are you in too! I am not joining in! I could not stop laughing I know he was joking. He will not clean there but does pick their buggers and all that lovely stuff.
