7 Myths About Horse Owners
#giggles #horses #EverythingHorse
Who’d be a horse owner hey?! Here’s 7 top myths,and realities, about modern day horse owners….
- Every horse owner is rich/loaded/mega loaded/has loads of money
Wrong! We are all ‘skint’ as we spend all of our hard earned cash on our horses
- Horse owners are stuck up/snooty
Wrong! – Someone help me up on my steed, said no horse owner ever! More like I wish this horse would stand still while I tear my new £19.99 jods trying to get on ….
- Riding a horse is easy
Wrong! You think you can ride until you leave the four walls of the riding school and purchase (as don’t forget we are all ‘loaded’) your first horse. That’s when the real fun starts as you hack out for the first time and realise you’ve actually purchased a ticking time bomb and not a riding school pony – just saying! We don’t just sit there….we hang on!
- Horse owners are all nuts!
Fair point….we can’t argue with that one, next!
- We love our horses more than our partners
It all depends on how nice you are to us, and whether you buy our horses lots of nice things…
- We think we own the roads
Wrong! we don’t, we only ask for other road users to be as respectful towards us as we are towards them. If you pass wide and slow, we will say thank you….if you don’t, well lets not go into detail
- We know it all when it comes to betting on horse racing
Wrong! our guess can only be as well educated as other non horsey folk. The racing industry is completely separate to the discipline world (i.e showjumping, dressage, eventing, polo), so it all depends on what your specialty is, and with such a large diverse industry, racing only makes up a small percentage of horse owners
