People who do the above and continue to ignore said advice despite repeatedly failing and getting hurt.

I have a friend who just bought an overpriced Belgian draft, with a missing tooth, and is not saddle broke. And she knows next to nothing about horses.
I know that I'm inexperienced, which is why when I get advice, I take it into consideration, and if it is good advice, I'll use it!

One of mine is those who like to tell me that I'm wasting my horse by riding him Western, even though he is a typical "English" breed. He's my horse, and it isn't hurting him, so it's my choice what style I ride :)

I always wonder when I see these, whether people really are clueless, or if they mean 16 1/2 hands, as I guess everywhere else a ".5" would be a half. Not that anyone that knows what they're on about would put 16.5 for horses, but maybe this is what people mean? I dont know. But one thing for sure, I immediately avoid any for sale/lease that have a ".5" as I figure they dont know what they're talking about!
