Things That Non Horsey People Say That Annoy You!
 
so I'm sure there are plenty of things non people have said to you that reallllllly annoy you.

One that i get asked ALL the time is ' so do you race?' they all think that horse riders are 'jockeys'

Comment that they all say, as if they know better is ' but you just sit there!'

another one would be when this chick in my class wrote in her story 'i picked the foal up and put it in my handbag, it was so small!'
incorrect stuff like that annoys me too :)

anyway , share yours!!!

"What do you want those things for anyway"
"horse poop smells"
"I dont know how you can stand the smell"

I get this often... "I just came back from the barn" and then someone asks me what " THAT smell is" :wink: Its my EquiFume :wink::rofl:

I am usually very tolerant, but "Why do you like them anyway, they smell and are dumb, just look at those stupid eyes!" got me raging.

Allow me to quote Hidalgo on this one,

"You can say anything you want about me, but I'm gonna have to ask you not to talk about my horse that way."

^ Story of my life. I get many insults. A lot of the guys in school think it's fun to try and get a rise out of me by saying "horses are stupid" to which I respond, "It took my 600lb pony a day to convince me to bring him food whenever he asked, and I have spent the night with him multiple times. You can't even get me to make you a sandwhich, let alone get me to come to bed with you." :lol: :lol: :lol:

That "do you race" thing too, pisses me off.

Oh and everyone at school assumes the ONLY thing that EVER happens in our area is barrel racing. Don't get me wrong, barrel racing is a grand passion of mine, but for CHRIST'S SAKE, EDUCATE YOURSELVES.

I ask around to see if anyone wants to join the equestrian team, that I could teach anyone to ride and I had a horse. Someone asked what we do, and one of my "helpful" classmates chimed in "You know...barrel racing."

*deep breaths(

ACTUALLY, we do Western Horsemanship, Drill, Hunt Seat Equitation, Dressage Hunt Seat Eq Over Fences, Working Pairs, Team Penning, Roping, Working Rancher, Saddle Seat Equitation, Trail, Reining, Steer Daubing, Figure 8, Team Biwrangle, Pole Bending, Keyhole, Team Canadian Flags, In Hand Trail, In Hand Obstacle Relay...

....AND THEN, after ALLL those are done, maybe we'll get to the barrel racing.

OkayI'mdone. xD

One guy who was a big bully at my school, used to make up he ate horse pies... Until i printed out laws stating that horse meat is illgeal and not sold for human consuption in aussie... then he had no leg to stand on :wink:
