My friend's dad came up to me once and asked me, "are any of your horses broke to ride?" We have eight horses, and not only do our families know each other super well and both have horses, he later asked - drunk off his rocker - if I would go get one for him to ride. (All of our horses are broke to ride and/or drive, barring our weanling of course,) As an added bonus, all of our horses were pastured several miles away at the time and I hand walk them to that pasture, but he still wanted me to get them.
He also insists on having horses, although refused to feed them because he was, "saving the hay for winter." I know what other people do is not my business, but when your horses are emaciated and neglected, all of a sudden it becomes more than a difference in handling techniques. It would be one thing to be feeding poor hay and graining because that is all you have, but to refuse to feed your horses is an ultimate peeve. Perhaps more of an issue of moral standards I guess.
