How about "No, you can't just whip the horse into doing whatever you say"?

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Love the one about cute ponies not always being the nice ones xD Sour took that one to heart and made sure that every human that so much as approached her learns that lesson...little butt head.

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

I love this! They're soooo true! I hate is when people say the horse does all the work. Those people need to try riding for a week, and they'll change their minds fast. It's a team effort. I wish the people that want their kids to ride my horse would realize that, too. Kid kicks, horse goes. I can't always stop that.

ugh tell that to my dad.

I may seem small, but if you mess with my horse, I will break out a level of crazy that will make your nightmares seem like a happy place.

oh and here is another one. Riding is not easy. You don't just kick the horse and make it go. There is a lot that goes on. Not just kicking.

After riding for hours almost every day this past summer, my friend's asked me where my abs were coming from. When I said "Riding", their jaws dropped haha.

that should stop any arguments that start with "riding isn't a sport"

when people don't realize that every time you ride you are risking your life... seriously

You may be out of my sight, but never out of my mind. ~RIP Angel
