You just so happen to have a fast horse.
So, what..
They don't.
I'd take some pride in that.. Really

If they want to be sore losers, and not be happy for you then they don't sound like friends..
I just wouldn't brag to much about it, or go about bringing attention like this about it, and yourself..

It really don't matter if he was $100,000,000, or $200.
He's a good horse

Holy horse feathers!!!

You have a $20000 horse??
You only paid $800 for him, or did I miss understand?

I would hold on to that horse for dear life, and pay no attention to whatever your 'friends' think about that..

I definetly wouldn't sell him for a silly reason of that sort

((I thought I read that in this thread somewhere, excuse me if I'm wrong))

personally I think its really rude to go to big shows with one horse & then take that same horse to small hometown shows or rodeos.
That would be like me taking my horse to a show & jumping in a 4ft class & taking that same horse down the road & jumping in a 2ft class....

People go to hometown small rodeos or shows for a reason, because they don't have the money, resources, or training to go to the bigger ones. If you have the money, resources, or training to travel all over the country going to big/pro rodeos why do you even care about hometown rodeos ?

Or you could be lying.

I'm sorry, but it sounds to me like you bragging in a way, but doing the innocent bit to get attention somehow?

If you act this way at the 'hometown rodeos' like you do on the forum,
I see why you get treated in such a manner..

Or, like Gypsygirl said your fibbing..

well i've got nothing against buying a horse for cheap and selling them for more later.
We bought my sister's horse for 1500 and 1 year and a half later we were getting offered over 10k for him.

But to me, if you are on a horse competing at a national level that's very unfair to take him to small shows. Because the people who are competing there are doing it to get places to qualify for the big shows, and if you are already qualified then you are taking the points and placings that they need.

If you had just bought the horse, or had not really competed on it and it was still very fast (naturally and through training at home) then that's just luck and hard work from you and you have no need to worry about what people think and say.

But if you are going back with your good horse then you are hindering other people who worked hard from reaching your level and they probably find that annoying.


That aside,

You probably realise all of the above posts are correct in theory..... so why did you need to post this thread?

If you feel the need to brag about flogging people at local shows you are on the wrong forum.

Folks, Buddy09 has been banned so she can't respond.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.
