People who know absolutely nothing about horses going all out. It's like how a drag queen takes being a girl to the extreme exaggerated level...but with horses.
Example, I have a friend (love her don't get me wrong) who knows absolutely nothing about horses. Not a young girl either, older than my mom. She moves into the area, goes riding with us a few times, and convinces herself that she wants a horse. So she goes and buys two expensive Tennessee Walkers (nothing against the breed-they're great!) expensive tack, expensive trailer...everything expensive and everything related to horses. She and her husband go away for half the year to Arizona and leave her horses at our place to take care of. Not a problem, love the horses. So we ride them and they stay at our place most of the year. She comes back, takes them to her house and never rides them. She fell off once (not thrown, fell) and didn't ride him again the rest of the summer. One of her horses has since died and she has just one Walker left...that she doesn't like. So he doesn't get ridden either.
Before you say anything, I know they are her horses and she can do what she wants with them. But then we have to listen to her complain. "Chance doesn't come to me or Chance runs all the time..Chance doesn't do what I tell him to"
Again, love this woman but it gets old.

I hate people who ask for advice, then blow you off and get their panties in a wad when you don't tell them exactly what they want to hear. Ex."Starlight bucked mii off n i dont wanna git on him agen! He scares mii! Wut shud i do????" "Get a trainer or sell the horse." "No! My horse luvs mii n wud do nething for mii! i cant afford a trianer but i dont matter neways cuz i em da best rider everr!!!!" Then two weeks later they come back and complain again. -sigh-

People who buy horses without knowing squat about them. You would think that reading was some kind of torture.

You even got the misspellings, horrible grammar and text speak just right!

I love it too Sunny. But I admit it, it took me quite some time to read through the text speak part.

Aha, my other pet peeve: TEXT SPEAK!!! It even annoys me in text messages.

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

Yup, me too, Sarah.

Which is why whenever I send a text message, I spell everything out as if it were an e-mail or forum post.

There just isn't any good excuse to use text speak, especially since most cell phone plans no longer charge by the word.

Plus, how HARD is it to type out anymore as opposed to nemore? Seriously?

Let's see some of my pet peaves from the other day...

You need a breast collar and a back cinch...if that horse goes to bucking...what???? My English saddle has neither and has never managed to come of when I rode in it and jumped in it and yes even had a few bucks in it.


You need new reins these are to thick and to new...ummm i just bought them today.

What kind of a bit is that??? (It is a D ring snaffle) I've never seen a bit like that you need to ride that horse in the bit the trainer was riding in. (yes I have it ordered it should be here in a couple of days. This is fine for now) well I have something you could throw in her mouth (no thanks)

That bit needs a curb chain...seriously???????

Again that horse needs a breast collar, a new saddle, back cinch and I would throw a tie down on her too. (why she hardly raises her head above her withers????) because I just would.

You can tell a woman trained her. Really how??? You had no idea until I just told you and that woman could outride you any day I am sure of it.

Well she trained her gentle for you. Wasn't hard on her.How do you know and isn't that the point to have a gentle responsive horse? I don't want a horse who had its mouth ripped on and head tied down like your horses and is half crazy out of fear.

You should let so and so ride her...umm I would not let him NEAR my horse and ruin all of the great work that was put into her.

I could go on but needless to say I won't be riding near them for a while.

I am so particular with grammar that I use apostrophe's, comma's, hyphen's and semicolon's in text messages, even if it means my messages are long. I find it so tiresome trying to translate text speak, I invested a lot of money in my education, why oh why would I want to appear uneducated? Phew, rant over.
