    The child who is posting on there is an absolute brat.
    You have to wonder if her mother is aware of the page.
    Sadly there are tons of places like this and there is not much you can do about it.

    these people..... oh I can hardly think straight, I know it's stupid to get pissed on the internet but
    Get pissed?
    You started out pissed, calling them idiotic, ridiculous, irresponsible, AND stupid in the first post.
    In other words you came across as what you stated at the beginning, "a totally random jerk".

    How did you expect someone to react to that?

    It's one thing to start nicely pointing out the error of their ways and then becoming agitated as they give stupid answers, but another entirely to start out on the name-calling offensive.

    But, but, but... The Lucky Acres nitwit says their horses aren't wild!!

    If - oops, when - someone does get hurt, their little page with pictures of kids without helmets will probably make for some nice evidence for the prosecution. Poor safety practices and all...

    I'm more appalled that they're breeding. I bet they have their own stallion. And no one has been hurt yet? Hard to believe.

    I completely sympathize with the getting pissed on the Internet. I usually give in to the rage.

    With that said, your own Facebook profile pic does not exactly brand you as the spokesmodel for riding safety . . . just sayin'!

    Hitting someone over the head with a baseball bat rarely accomplishes anything. Although it may be wrong on many levels, it's not your job to educate the masses.

    OK, that's pretty entertaining. Now the owner/instructor/whatever person and that Montana girl are fighting between themselves because o/i/w told people to lay off Montana and Montana rather rudely told her to stop standing up for her. It was funny last night, now it's even better.

    Lucky Acres is a great name for them, though. They're lucky nobody has gotten killed on their acres yet! And they'll be even luckier if anyone actually learns to ride correctly from their "instruction!"

    Yeah, it's the oldies who care less but rant more about the Important Stuff. Maybe I'm limiting others' right to slap on a TBI so that there's enough money in the insurance pool for me to slap on adult diapers some day?

Yes, months honey, you must know everything now huh?

    lmao she got me there! But it hardly compares with her latest words of wisdom

    "If I got an injury I wouldn't use my parents insurance I wouldn't even go to the doctor . I would get up and get over it if I die o well who cares that doesn't affect taxes or insurance so stay out of our business"

    I'm sure her parents are sthuper proud of that attitude. I imagine she's just a peach to deal with in person

    Now Denise is saying, "Any one that wants to come out can we have nothing to hide."

    No $hit. You've just shared -- and defended! -- your reckless disregard for these kids' welfare with the entire Interwebz.

    Oh the humanity.

    Now it's just called "Stables". They have changed their name to protect the incurably stupid.

    Did you know that if you say the word "GULLIBLE" really softly, it sounds like "ORANGES"?
