^^ well that is off topic.. but I can soooooo relate...

My horsey friend was giving my a piggy-back ride and she tripped/ lost balance and we both fell onto my ankle....

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

I feel badly about ^^^, but a show's a show, and a rider's got to go.
Some people who ask me to ride my young horse cause he's "so cute" I would love to put them on him and watch the show. I have a couple people in mind I would love to see that with.

"....Oh."
HAHA I've gotten that a lot. I usually say she is a Equus ferus caballus. Just to confuse them. :)

I'll still laugh when they get the farts. Sometimes I question whether I actually made it past my 12th birthday.

More than a couple times I've gotten people who think horses are breeze to take care of, all you have to do is "throw them some straw and apples."
Yeeah, about that...

Same here. Normally I don't let it get to me. But you need to tell him that he is the stupid and useless one. Not the horse. I mean seriously, if they are so useless why were they one of the most prized animals? Not only were they still are.

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.

Tell him about how incredible police horses are and what they do, explain how some horses are used in therapy programs for people with disabilities, and tell him that horses have actually pulled people out of depression before. That should show him that horses are really useful animals.

Dear non-horsey people,
Just a little tidbit of info.. you know those beautiful pictures/paintings/prints of the perfect horses galloping in the wind with their manes and tails streaming behind them? Well, if the horse is running, it's farting. A LOT. LOUDLY. Just a factoid for ya.

Also not every horse is cool with you seeing it and yelling "OH MY GOD LOOK A HORSE" and having a spazz attack. Your going to scare the crap out of my horse and you might get kicked in the face (maybe by the horse or maybe by me..)
