What's your top 3 pet hates in the Equine World?

1)  Those people who say they are "Experienced" have nothing more to learn or that they know best - sorry we are all learning all of the time and no one person has the ultimate knowledge or understanding, and I don't just mean with horses! I've been around horses over 40 years and still would not say I am experienced - I learn all the time.

2)  Rude riders who do not acknowledge drivers that slow down, they then moan that cars fly past - I wonder why?

3)  Riders using their mobiles - pay attention to the horse not your social life.

OK that is my top 3, I think I must have got out of the bed the wrong side this morning ha ha!!

There is no greater gift than to share time with a creature of such beauty - The Horse.

 genuinely don't think there is enough space in this box for me to fit all my hates in. shame.

It's lonely in the saddle since the horse died.

 1) People who like to be the 'dominant' boss of their horse and milk the whole dominance thing. 

2) People who keep their horses in stables 24/7- let them go out!!!!! 

3) People who are unwilling to break out of their habits and open their eyes to different possibilities, if it could benefit their horse.

 

Also, really don't like it when people don't say thanks to drivers, it is just etiquette and polite! 

 

But each to their own et al

Our lives begin to end; the day we become silent about the things that matter.

Re: What's your top 3 pet hates in the Equine World?

 Hi new here but this caught my eye!! I'll narrow it down to 3 -

 

1) People who are closed to all ways but their own, everyone has an individual flair and if it works don't dismiss it - you might learn something!

2) The politics of stable yards.......Oh they are tiresome I have my best friends at the yard - my boys and although I like chatting and swapping stories I'm there to do my horses, not get involved in petty squabbles. 

3) People who bemoan other owners for not rdidng or whatever and saying the horse is 'wasted'. If the horse is happy and content and the owner is happy and content then how exactly is the horse being wasted? Not everyone wants to ride, or indeed CAN ride for various reasons. We don't always know the reasons why a particular horse is kept but not ridden - and really it's only the business of the owner, isn't it?

So much love for this one! Sadly mummy and daddy aren't funding my horsey adventures so I have to work my ass off in a supermarket and don't have all the time in the world/ am never up when they're up! Yet people seem to take that as 'Omg she's never up to ride Woody, he has so much potential and he's just standing there!'. Wish they'd all just fall in a big burny BONFIRE!

Hah yeah ive got one of these people at my yard and shes a royal pain in the backside. Shes convinced my horse is evil all because he is top of the herd and pulls faces at her mare when its feeding time. The rest of the time hes not interested in masey but chris beleives that dan is mental and out to get her horse!
Oh and shes full of yard politics too - cant stand it or her come to that!

 1. People that assume that your horse is a lunatic but haven't taken the time to understand what or why. So make out that they just don't like the horse when they're actually terrified for no reason!

2. Yard politics!

3. People who don't get the rules of the school so just come crashing across and almost cause accidents!

Re: What's your top 3 pet hates in the Equine World?

1) Bitching and back stabbing at horse shows and the horsey world in general. I have a horse because i love them and my boy is my sanity in a mad world. I would do anything for him and im looking forward to going to our 1st show together this year but im dreading the "my horse is better than yours crap" I just want to go and have fun with my equine best mate and if we come home with a rosette then great and if not then we’ve had a new experience together.
2) People who purposely speed up on the road when they see its a horse - Why don’t the government make an ad that shows a horse going through somebody’s windscreen to show just what damage it does to the horse,, rider and driver of the car then maybe people will slow down (obviously im not suggesting they use a live horse for this but i do think as vile as it would be to see it may just save lives)
3) The new woman at our livery yard - controlling, aggressive, insensitive, unhelpful, rude, never listens and name drops every 2 seconds about useless bits of info nobody cares about!
I need a number 4) sorry - colic. It took my beautiful boy of 25yrs away from me last year and my friends 1 yr old on xmas eve.

1. people who try to push their way of doing things because they believe it's the right way and will not even listen to alternatives

2. BITCHINESS! I have discovered the horsey world is a very bitchy place

3. people who don't spend time with their horse or if in full livery and just on the yard not doing anything and watching the staff care for their horse. yes they are paying for it to be done but part of having a horse is looking after it. If I'm on the yard and the stables are being done I'll help with all the horses and not just my own.
