MY PET PEEVES:
-people that ride in double bridles that don't even do that high level dressage that they *have* to use one, usually hackies that jam their horses up in the bridle and think they are the best riders when they're not even correct!
-hackies that attemp eventing because they are "really great riders and t looks sooo easy" then they got eliminated at the first xc jump because the horse isn't ridden!!
-hackies in general lol (only the ones that jam their horses up and think they are top sh..)
-people that ride in grackles/mexian nosebands/figure 8 nose bands without needing too just for looks. they are made for a purpose not to be pretty like a browband
-people that ride horses way too small for their weight
-horses with bad ground manners! i wasn't a very experienced owner and i had a horse that was big and strong that was really pushy, i taught her manners and i was a beginner, come one it's not that hard!
i actually had this girl's horse pin it's ears back at me when i was walking past because it was eating and she was their and she goes "oh he's just grumpy"
-people that hoon around a warm up arena at a training day and hoon right pass you when your horse is obviously having a mini melt down so they think "hey lets just hoon past that young horse that's spazzing out on it's first time out" and even more so that you have to yell at them to stay the hell away from you until you sort it out! hello training day!
-gadgets that *make* your horse go "on the bit", i know someone that would "train" her green off the track tb of 4 years of age to "collect" by using a elastic thing that goes around the poll then attaches to the girth between the legs, then at shows she can't use it so then she wonders why her horse rears, flicks the head up and almost knocks her out! she's had a few black eyes - i laugh when i see her with an ice pack on her face, serves her right!! lol
