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...
