I hate it when people find out you own horses and want to ride them or they expect to ride them and hint " so when are we going for a ride?" .....

When you get your own horse lol

May we all see horses through the eyes of children

when people ride their horses up to a group of little children;

when people constantly crack their lunge whip and yell at a horse in a round pen when they're already doing what is asked.

When people forget to turn the hot wire back on.

When people leave the drive gate open.

When people jerry-rig fencing... letting their horses get out and eat all my hay.

When people don't feed or water their horses.

when people tie their horses and drive away

hogging the wash rack

pasture mates that always spread the manure in the pasture instead of picking it up (the flies love it, but I don't!)

finding my rakes, etc with someone else's stuff.

horse people that always try to one-up everyone else (and they've usually got the worst behaved horses)

"All I pay my psychiatrist is the cost of feed and hay, and she'll listen to me allll day."

People who have a solid horse with like one sick and baby powder it to make it look white instead of spending the time actually washing their horse before the show.

Our show season here is in the winter, and I refuse to bath a horse when it's cold just to go to a show! (granted I just do schooling shows except for the minis... for them I use a force blower to blow out all the dirt, which is easy since they're shaved for shows, and will use a warm damp cloth if needed).

I hate when I have my horse in the cross ties and someone puts their horse on the hitch post in front of it and let it swing around backwards so that their horses butt is against my horses chest in the cross ties with no way to get away, especially if they kick at him.

I really HATE that my stable gives certain families a nice discount on their board to volunteer to feed, clean stalls, turn out horses on a weekend...one day a month and all they do is throw hay at your horse and leave so that Sunday night your horse is standing in a swamp of urine and sawdust (my stable buys sawdust instead of shavings...yeah I know....).

This annoys me !!! People think just because a horse has color its some how worth more , even when its achieved nothing , has no papers , bad confirmation and is unfortunate looking ...... But hey he's a palomino !!!

4 yr old palomino qh gelding. green broken and ready to go on with further education in any discipline. 14.3 hands and solid build . beautiful natured and looks to match. willing to learn. white blaze and two front white socks. very good doer . just had feet done and wormed. good to catch and float.no papers.$4000 ono.

Oh, I hate that too! We have a few of those ads on Craig's List out here one for a Pali and one for a Buckskin... The buck isn't even 2 yet, hasn't been handled and they want 5K for it...and I don't recognize any of the names in it's breeding. Oh and it's knock kneed to boot!

I hate that People just LOVE Cinny when they think he's a QH, and say what a great QH he is, nice mover, etc etc and then...when they find out he's a breeding stock Paint (paint with no spots) they sort of look down their nose at him and walk away like they can't waste their time on him.

And I really can't stand ads for foals with titles like "Great Reining Prospect" "Great eventer prospect" "Great Barrel Prospect" etc etc etc, and then you get to the ad and it's a little foal who's never been handled. Isn't it a bit early to be able to tell that it's a great prospect at a particular sport?? Okay, I can play that...my 9 month old baby is a GREAT PROSPECT to be a pro quarterback!!!!

I assume you mean sock not sick, correct?


I guess it does not bug me that people hide dirt on socks. Why? Because socks get dirty the instant you get them clean.

I am annoyed at the people who go into the ring with manure chunk on hocks and such.
