Everyone else may disagree, but I most likely wouldn't mind this.

I yelled at a girl who started texting while riding (despite the fact she was riding a school horse), she glared at me but put the phone away.

That's just my pet peeve though.
I worked at a place like that and have a "trainer" that does it even when's supposed to be instructing me. Even irks me still when people drive a car and do it. ( that's another rant) I don't understand what is so important to text or talk on the phone. Don't you just love the glare.

What can your horse do?"
When I was looking for a horse to lease I can't tell you how many times I've ran into people like that. I spoke to a lady for almost an hour about her horses pedigree.

I know they're trying to make themselves look better but in my eyes the most discrete and honest person wins most respect
My most "recent" trainer. Quick to point out everything wrong about the rider's position, horse, her own horses, etc.

My horse bolted and the man finally asked if his children were scaring my horse, uhm, yes!
I agree people really need to supervise their kids, especially with the screaming the horse I rode prier was used to gun shots but when kids scream it was a whole different ball game.

I wish she could see us now.
Nothing worse then this or so I've come to believe.

I'm going to have to go back and read the others, I"m sure I'll agree! And think about some of my own. But one off the top of my head that I hate: people calling Belgians as belgiums. For some reason that really bothers me (and I don't have any Belgians lol)

My pet peeves? Hold on, now youve got me started!

1. People who think your cruel because you actually use the whip not just tap the friggen horse.

2. People who are ribbon hungry, someone i know rides past our rider class to make sure im not in it. It got that bad her mum once drove into a show saw our float and drove out ;/

3. Horses with no manners and people who pussy foot around them! Again same person leads there horse around the whole show because he wont tie up by himself. And yet he tramples over you and hits the end of the lead all the time!

4. Pony Club (ive had a few issues with them)

5.People that tell me ive broken there horse! Because i dont jam its head on its chest.
and to think i have many more to think of.. I dont have much pactience for annoying people :P

The Perfect Day-
Going to bed with a Dream
and waking up with a Purpose!

Im sure a million people do this but it really gets to me.

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. I have a horse who is almost entirely white and I'm up til all hours of the night making sure he's spotless before shows. If you want your horse to look great actually put some work into it!
