I most definitely like my horses and other pets more than people. I *still* collect model horses, but now i'm a bit more specific on which ones i'm after, my husband *still* collects matchbox car mustangs, so we support each other in our "collections" that decorate our living room, and bedroom LOL.

My SIL intends on riding with me this coming summer, she has only ever sat on her obese pony, never asked her to walk, trot, nothing, but she insists that she can ride with me in the rugged trails with lord knows what out there on them. I think no.....and because her horse is healing from hoof problems, she wants to ride Shadow my 21yo ornery Appaloosa gelding, who personally took me through fences, trees, and played rodeo bronc the last few times we rode....i think no. Until you either listen or go take lessons, you will NOT be riding with me anytime soon. (her grandmother doesn't help matters either, saying that she CAN ride with me, when she so clearly has taught her granddaughter to ride...oh yes...maybe in fantasy land somewhere...)

You got to love the strange people that notice that your wearing cowgirl/cowboy boots, and exclaim that you must have horses, and that they would love to come and ride sometime :facepalm:
1 I have no idea who you are, just because my dad is your mechanic, does not mean you know me.
2 you would not be able to handle any one of my horses, each one is so very different and aren't to kind to strangers
3 do you have any riding or horse experience at all???
(hits face off desk in office repeatedly) :ROTFL:

^The first part of this. My boyfriend's biggest competition is my horse xD (Ok...not really. But he probably feels that way sometimes xD)

in our sport we could have the ride of our life one day and be fearing for our life the next because our equipment has a mind of its own

When I had a horse and people asked me about riding him, I often times said sure you can ride a horse. Just not my horse. I then politely referred them to a local facility that gives riding lessons. Lol

Strength is not defined by physical ability. It is determined by your actions and the compassion of your soul.

^I don't mind people riding my horse. Assuming they aren't trying anything too crazy and it's under my supervision.

I don't appreciate when you tell me that I can have my horse in a family photo, so I leave him tied up for a few hours in the cold. And then when I bring him in the photo they say could we take a picture without you on a horse.
I felt like saying then why didn't f**k**g tell me before my horse waited for hours that you never wanted him in the photo.
Lets just say I got a little hot.

I got into a debate with someone once about stalls and pastures.

No, it is not abuse to stall my horse at night in his giant 16x35 ft stall, nor is it abuse to keep him in a cage all day (AKA a pasture).

Where would you have me keep him? Just let him run all over like a crazy feral beast?

It's also not abuse to ride him. No, I'm not too heavy for him.
