Do you find your judged because you ride?

 I have to admit i am fed up of being seteriotyped because i ride. Whenever people find out i ride two shared horses i  get comments like "must be nice to be rich" or "daddy spoils you" nobody ever sees i work my butt off to be able to do what i love. Does anybody else experience things like this?

Re: Do you find your judged because you ride?

 Honesty my best friends are all horsey because of this! Alot of girls at school ride but they are all in a different pony club to me so we are in direcet competion to each other!But still we get alot of "oh riding isn't a sport you just sit there!" from non-horsey people. And I get alot of "oh a pony, very rich are you?" even though everyone knows Penny is on a FREE loan til the summer .So I only get to see my best best friends at the weekends. *sigh* 

It's ok if you give up as long as you come back later to try again.

 I told people I had ponies and they were like "she's the rich one"

really bugs me as I am no where near rich.

 I think some of my friends think I'm loaded or suspect my parents are paying or something.... When I got Cracker, one of the first comments someone made was "I work 50 hours a week and I couldn't afford a horse".  I don't work that much and I only work as a waitress.  I just spend a long time saving money and I don't be wasteful, then get myself something I really want :).  It was a similar reaction when I got my car too. Hmmm.  Oh well :D.

Most of my closest friends have horses. So it doesn't worry me.. by having a horse has enabled me to have some wonderful friends. Most of the time, lol.

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

no one in my class at school has horses so when i got toby they were all asking how big my house is and how rich i am. i am definitey not rich ! really does get on my nerves. if they knew how hard looking after horses is then they wouldnt do it !
