Here's one: if you tease me about horses...prepare to get a nasty look and a, "that was soooo not funny!" Seriously these are some comments I've gotten in horses
Me:our horses are coming home tomorrow!!!
Him: in a glue bottle!
Me: *nasty glare* and , "that wasn't funny. No one here is laughing."

Him:how many horses do you have?
Me: one, but we have four at our house.
Him:cool. Did you know that horse meat tastes really good?
Me: you're so mean!!

Then at another time these same two boys told me how farmers used to euthanize their horses, and that horses are useless for anything other than riding and dirt bikes are a much better investment. I got pretty mad...but my youth minister told them to be nice to me so then they stopped ripping on horses :)

Pshh....I don't procrastinate, I just do unimportant things VERY productively!

Be a frootloop in a cheerio world!

One of our delivery drivers apparently owns and rides Arabians and he tells me horses do all the work. I just reply with "Well you're not riding properly then" but he gets all huffy. But apparently he "trains" them too.

I get to my first show, and we pass by the warm up ring. What's the first thing my EIGHTEEN year old brother says?
"They look like they're humping their horses." You can imagine the glare I gave him!

My mom sometimes hangs out while I tack up. One day, my horse cocked her leg and was resting. She asked me if the horse had to pee, because she looks like she's crossing her legs.

All my friends ask me what riding stuff I do, and I say English. Usually, they don't know what that is, so I just say, "It's the stuff in the Olympics, ya know, Horse-Dancing, Jumping, and Jumping in the woods." They, 90% of the time, know EXACTLY what I'm talking about.

Luckily, I've never met ANYONE who has said horseback riding is easy. Buuuuuutt.... I DO make it known that I know how to use my riding crop...

Dear non horsey people,
You might say riding is easy and that anyone can do it. I might attempt to tell you how hard it is. You might still say that it sounds easy, all you do is sit there and if they buck, you just sit more. I tell you that that is impossible to keep your butt gluedto the saddle when that happens. You still say it's easy and that any one can ride a horse. Well, I invite you to take a trail ride with me on a good day and race at full speed. Too scared? I then invite you to a trail ride on a cold WINDY day, at a walk. We will see how you control a spooky horse.

Lol. I dare you to stay in my horse for more than five minutes. He will only let me and my best friend ride him or he bucks like a demon.

I'm guessing these folks who say riding is easy are young folk. All my friends tell me I'm crazy to ride horse because it is so dangerous.

You don't have good luck or bad luck, you just have muck.

Don't act like you know what you're talking about. Your riding history is riding a carousel horse when you were four and riding a pony at the fair when you were eight.

Saying that riding is easy or that anyone can do it only proves that you have never ridden before
