Unhappy Typical problem or just me?

Well as most of us know we started out at our homtown shows as a kid, and i was wondering does anyone every go back to their hometown shows and find that nobody really talks to you because you have a really fast horse that can't be beat?

Well i'm having this problem and i really dont like it because none of my friends will talk to me and I haven't changed at all since we left WI other then getting some more horses. The only thing they said to me at the last show was, go hang out with your own type their over there and they pointed to some pretty rich people. It really get on my nerves that people just look down on you because you have a fast horse.

Does anybody else have this problem and if you do what have you done to fix it? if you have fixed it at all

i havnt had this problem but they just sound jealous and rude and if people are like that because your horse is better then they werent friends to begin with, i wouldnt waste my time on them. I'd just keep beating them with your fast horse if they want to be rude and spiteful.

They obviously arent your friends. Sounds like they are sore losers. I'd make new friends.

Just be you. Maybe they'll come back around.

I've had the opposite problem (Not having the 20k horse, etc) and you just need to be yourself and not worry about them.

well spastic i dont have the 20k horse that i race in barrels, buddy is one of my many auction horses and i only paid 800 dollars for him, pretty good price on a horse like him, but if the guy that owned the auction house knew what he had in buddy he would never have sold him, thats why i get to take buddy down to their auction next year

^^And? What, sell him, your perfect horse?

Well if you don't like how you are treated at the rodeos, don't go, plain and simple.

Maybe it isn't everyone else who has the problem, just you.

IMHO, if you act like you do at shows like you do on here, talking about your perfect, $**000, horses that can never lose, I wouldn't talk to you either. It just comes off as snobby.

Now this is my opinion mind you, I am not saying you are a snob, but if every single person has a problem with you, you might want to look at how you are acting, not them.

I know buddy09 pretty well and i travel alot with her, i think she ment take buddy(her horse) down to the auction house for their rodeo. She really isn't snobby and her horses aren't perfect, nobody can ever be perfect.
