    The words 'tempest in a teapot' come to mind....

    Seriously, why are you taking such offense at some stupid on-line blurb?

    How does this affect you? It doesn't, unless you allow it to.

    There will always be people who say stupid, ignorant things. Saying they shouldn't be allowed to ride or compete horses 'cause they hurted your feewings is moronic.
    The plural of anecdote is not data.

    *snort* Clearly, the two "responses" are from people with no sense of humor...bet there's something in there about dressage queens, too.

    It's urban dictionary. It's not worth getting offended over THAT entry.

    Yes, I am offended. But I am not particularly effected by it....they didn't hurt my "feewings", I'm not THAT weak....I didn't LITERALLY mean there should be a rule prohibiting whoever wrote this from riding horses. I am just surprised someone would be ignorant enough to take time to write something like that about their own sport. They are indirectly offending themselves. Sorry if I mislead you.

    Um, but seriously, click on pretty much ANY entry on that site and you'll be offended. Or entertained. Or both!

    At first I was really offended, I couldn't believe someone had the nerve to write that!! But it is pretty funny, and now that I read it again I can't help but laugh. And now that I think about it, it IS urban dictionary. I guess i'm guilty of over-reacting on this one....

    Here is the one about Dressage. The description of Western Pleasure was not one to post here.

    I laughed out loud at the dressage one that said, "If it were cheap and easy, it would be called Western."

    Only because I read it and automatically thought of the COTH username Western, not the discipline. Haha no offense Western!

    A: Heyyyy isn't dressage cool? *Dance horse, dance!*
    B: No, not really.

    HAHA. This reminded me of when I showed my non-horsey roommate an amazing dressage test to a song she liked. She wasn't that enthused.

    It's pretty funny, I thought. Actually, if we can't laugh at ourselves, we're in sad shape. And after reading COTH forums for the past year, I can see where every single mocking detail of that article came from. Our hunter ranks are full of knowledgeable horse people and fine riders, but according to a lot of threads here, they are also full of people who are more concerned with trends and fashions than a college girl going through sorority rush.

    I can laugh at this since: a) I can't afford an $80,000 horse (can hardly type it!). b) don't have a 'double bridle' anywhere in my tack room and actually haven't seen one since I was nine. c) any look of superiority I might have is smothered by my look of nervousness and occasionally embarrassment. I'll have to go back and read the others.

    1. Person who likes to wear tight pants and use whips, however, do not make fun or else they will beat the shit out of you with the whip and then trample you with their horse.

    Ha! This site is funny!
