    How about "horsey" people (ones that own horses) that think you have to just sit there and let the horse do everything and not understand that the correct lead and other body mechanics are important? That irritates me sometimes. They don't understand why horses need to build up their muscles :/. Like they're born with the correct muscling lol.

    Every time I hear "Can I ride your horse," I feel a sharp pain in my chest. NO. He is too unpredictable, even on his best days.

    Or--
    Friend: "Wanna spend the night?"
    Me: "Can't, I have to be at the farm and I have a show the next morning."

    I feel badly about ^^^, but a show's a show, and a rider's got to go.

    I definitely get the 'can my kid ride' and my sister seems to think that the way to get on anyone's good side is to tell them they can ride my horse without asking me first. I also get the 'do you know so-and-so they ride too' all the time. I even get it when I go out of state and tell people I'm not from the area.

    Not every horse needs to be or should be blanketed in the winter.
    Not every horse needs shoes.
    Getting their hooves trimmed doesn't hurt.
    Horses will not automatically bite your thumb off if you leave it stuck out while giving a treat.
    The lunge whip isn't a cruel device.
    Just because I have a horse doesn't mean I go to or watch every horse event ever, I also haven't seen every horse movie/TV series that's out there

    My best friend thinks that kicking a horse is mean so I asked her what you should do instead and said to just jiggle the reins...... I told her very quickly that that's not how it works. She also thinks horseback riding isn't really a sport, when she told me that I just about flipped my lid :P

    People who say a palomino horse is a breed, not a color. At least they don't call it yellow :) Also, people who see horses with wall eyes and think they're blind.

    People don't realise that horses need to be TRAINED to reach the high Olympic level!!! People you can't just jump on a horse and expect it to nail the hard core dressage routine or be able to correctly jump 2m+!!! I have a friend who told me once at a show a girl came up to her and told her the she and her horse did a great job. My friend said something like Thanks! It took me a lot of time to get her like that, the girl was like What they don't come like that when you buy them! Seriously you do have to train your horse!

    This a thousand times over. I took Flirt out for a handwalk around the neighbourhood a few months ago. Being clydie x wb he's a BIG boy. Had 2 kids and their Mum appear out of nowhere, scare the ever loving crap out of Flirt. Once I settled him down they asked if they could pet him. I lowered his head so they could stroke his face, but told them to be very gentle and quiet because he's only 2. The mother proceeds to look at me with a look of complete disbelief and say "horse's aren't this big when they're babies!"

    If you wouldn't pet the cop, don't pet the police horse! He's a working officer, not your chance for a photo op. :)
