Since a few weeks one of my Dutch horse friends started talking about pennygirls. I wonder what they were. When she told me, I noticed I've had lots of encounters with those girls. I decided to open a thread about it to hear if you guys ever had experience with them. Let's first say what they are.
-Penny girls love "abused" horses and wants to save them.
-A penny girl thinks they know how to treat a wounded horse with herbs or other weird stuff they've seen in movies.
-A penny girl thinks a horse should be brushed and played with the entire time, especially if it are foals, yearlings or pregnant mares.
-Like I said, penny girls love braiding and doing stuff with the horse their manes and tail.
-Some penny girls want to use auxiliary reins, long whips and persuaders and think they're experienced enough to use them.
-Mostly they're young girls (9-14 year old) who have a lot of fantasy.
-Penny girls often think they are the cliche protagonist of a movie where they tame a wild horse that only THEY can ride on.
-Penny girls are often inexperienced and don't know that riding without a saddle and having a lack of experience can be dangerous.
I hope that we can have a bit of fun with sharing our experiences. Btw, this isn't meant to be absolutely serious. Please don't hate on anyone!
