Thats the horses i TRAIN lol not the horses i own. I have one horse im training that i do own but she is a rescue and will be adopted out later on. And another gelding im breaking in for a family member.

If your horse thinks your the greatest person in the world dont seek a second opinion.

HAHA ya i think the whole reason it all happened was about his ego because he isnt really that bad, i think he just got his wittle feelings hurt and felt he had to act tough

Umm, I would PROBABLY find a different boyfriend. You can tell by his comment and actions that he clearly is not the horse person he says he is, and he is disrespecting you.
There's a difference between "not being a fan of horses but still respecting them" and "strongly disliking horses and being rude about it".
My boyfriend of 2 years isn't a fan of horses, but he respects the fact that if I don't go to the barn to see Image after work I'm going to be very cranky. He hardly comes to my barn, but when he does he plays with Image and is nice to him and gives him treats. If I need help cleaning stalls, no matter how much he hates it he will always come help me when I ask. He refuses to ride a horse and I can respect that; it's just not his cup of tea. Just like playing Dungeons and Dragons isn't my cup of tea, haha.
There's a fine line between not like something, and just plain disrespecting you.

LOL ya totally get that, he hates my horses becaus they totally love me but dont care about him, i tried to explain it takes a lot of TIME, the other day i was working with a horse that bucks and he came up to see me and he watched me go from side to side and pick myself up in the saddle, he asked why i did that and i said its cus she bucks, he told me to just hop on and ride her til she stops lol. I just rolled my eyes.

Thats an attitude I just can't tolerate. I don't have it in me.

I understand not everyone will share the same passion, but I can't tolerate someone who is supposed to be my "other half" to belittle something I care so much about. My horse is part of who I am. You want to insult my life style and WHO I AM, then I'll show you the door.

My guess is that his pride was at stake and so he blamed the horses for something he couldn't do. My exhusband and I knew horses but never agreed on anything relating to horses. Not a single thing. Ever. I could trust him to pull my horse out of a burning barn, but that was it.

He had no respect for my riding or skill or knowledge and it got so bad that we would never talk about horses around eachother. Now that we're divorced, I'm not settling for another man who will scoff and degrade my passion the way my ex did.

If he doesn't like it and has such a poor opinion about your horses, I'd keep him at home and not invite him back.

He is not only disrespecting your horses, but you as well. Failing to listen to you?! Hello!!!! Where is the communication?

I don't like this guy. If he can't even listen to you, then he isn't worth your time. Plus having him on your horses will probably mess up their training. Be realistic. Not all horses are "bomb proof" or "beginner proof"
