    Yes we have one of those at my barn. Sometimes she drives me up a wall. Luckily she is on the other side of the barn (indoor sits in between) so I try to avoid her if I can.

    ha ha - you've all heard it before... same old story...... brat kid who is GOD of all things horses, including training, veterinary and farrier (has owned 1 less than 10 years). The only thing I know for sure is: the horse will eventually make a fool out of someone like this (with any luck, they will learn from that experience).... ask me how I know this - LOL...

    There is a local expert/instructor who's a real gem. Some of the "wisdom" she passes along:

    ---You should always wrap horses' legs with polos before you ride out on trails.
    ---32 degrees is too cold to ride because it damages the horses' lungs
    ---One must always ride one's dressage test in front of the judge with horse wearing pretty white polo wraps
    ---You should never turn your horse after a jump
    ---Proper hand position while riding on the flat is to bury your knuckles in your horse's withers

    Southern ladies say, "Well, bless your heart!"

    New Yorkers say, "Up yours!"

    I say, "Go pound salt in a rathole."

    Whomever said you have to always be NICE? But be witty. It's key!
