    How about:

    Raising a foal does not mean it will grow up to be perfect and have a fabulous, unbreakable bond with you. They do not work that way. They are not dogs.

So why don't you skuddle along before getting into an argument about me and my riding, and her and her parents money making her able to ride. And btw, I have ridden upper level horses, Grand Prix horses, because people trust my riding. It went fabulous and I was being paid to ride the horse and jump her till they moved to Georgia. Don't believe me? I have pictures. And no, she has only enough mental capacity to know the courses, I asked her once if she did any leg work to get him bending, and she asked me what leg work was. Yeah, lets think about arguing with someone who MAY accept your high-brow and narcissistic ideals to get your point across. What a negative way to go about my statement. Congrats on being the first person to tick me off on here. *clap* you are surely a champion rider, look how you handed it to me. Please, try and have at least half heart when you look at other peoples posts. TB-Out

    Wow, way to show your a**. You need to go take a time out. I'd be pretty embarrassed if I were you.

    I did, and after consideration, I am apologetic for how I went around that.. I had a bad day and that just kind of flipped my lid, however it was not appropriate for me to do that and respond in such a manor. My apologies, members of Horseforum.

    Another thing...just because a horse is "big" doesn't mean it isn't a baby. And just because my green 5 year old "looks the same" as a 17 year old seasoned trail horse, does NOT mean you can hop on her and expect her to behave the same!

    Here's one that occurred to me last night talking to a lesson client.

    Just because I ride horses does not mean that I know everyone in the county that rides horses.

    "Do you know __________?" "No, I don't think so, why?" "Oh, she has a horse"

    Green Broke
    Adding on to the list....

    - its a miniature HORSE, not a miniature PONY
    - I don't know of anyone who actually yells 'giddy up' to make their horse move...
    - just because I am a beginner does not mean I am a bad rider
    - and I was telling a horse person that my ankles hurt after a long trail ride (riding western of course) and she (rides english) said "how? You just sit there". And I thought later 'what kind of horse to you ride where you just sit there???'... ugh, I mean, yeah there is more thing that you have to 'do' in a english saddle, but you don't just SIT in a western saddle.
