    *sorry on iPod, can't work the stupid thing! Tell rude peops like that while you appreciate her being concerned for the horse's well being, she needn't worry her stupid brain about it, horse's are strong animals. And if she phones you again, tell I said she is rude & ignorant, in fact give her my phone number so I can tell her myself!

    Just think in a little while you'll be thinner and she'll still be a bitch
    Ahaha, my thoughts exactly! That's what's motivating me to keep going

    Ahaha, that's funny! And if she does, I'll certainly pass her along! :p

    Funny thing is, her arse didn't seem too much smaller than mine, the silly cow.

    Someone people truly are ignorant of how their words affect others and are blinded by what they feel is truth. I used to think ALL people using a whip while lunging was cruel so I would be mad at those that did it (cause I'd seen a few people at shows smack their horse with it without really having a reason to??) But anyway I learned that the whip is a tool not a weapon and things began to make sense.

    Now if I went up to those using whips while lunging, I would have pissed off a LOT of people and I would have been the bitch. It's just I was ignorant and didn't realize it.

    Ya know? She'll realize one day that what she says about horses jumping and riders that seem heavy to her is untrue.

    Sometimes the best thing to do is be straight up honest, which it's your choice (the OP) if you want to be. I wouldn't have been quiet when she said that to me I would have aid "you know, I've had my vet tell me tha my horse is in prime physical condition and can support me just fine. So what you said was not only hurtful but untrue"

    But that's just me. I like to help people in various ways.

    But thought I would contribute my thoughts. There are too many angry people in this world when it could be fixed or at least confirmed (as in agree to disagree) with simple communication.

    ~~~

    That being said, like I said I am very happy that you are working on bettering your health :) That's awesome, and I'm all for it! Sometimes we need the right kind of motivation. I didn't consider I could get healthier (aka asthma and weight) until I found a reason to: horses.

    Hugs!
    I told her I didn't feel the correct fit between her and us, but I get where you're coming from. I also didn't say anything at the time, because I was so utterly dumbfounded that she actually said it, that's all.

    I appreciate the support too :) !

    But I feel scolded here, the point of the lady dog comment was to point out that the Op can change and probably a lot easier the the lady dog.

    But Hey, feel free to jump on me anytime, seems everyone else is just now.

    Noo you aren't being scolded! Just because I do things differently doesn't mean you're wrong :)

    She was a bitch.. but what I'm saying is I think her purpose wasn't to hurt the OP but she was concerned about the horse (without reason to be.. hence where the ignorance comes in)

    I'm sorry Golden that you felt I was scolding you :/ Not my intention at all!!!!!

    I love what you have to say, you give it up straight :)
