barrel pony

“I thought I had a very fast pony”

but what if it was the snortiest, scruffiest shetland and he loved it so dearly though.

what then.

help me.

I can appreciate any horse.

-the legs on a thoroughbred

-the beautiful head of an Arabian

-the feathers of a draft

-the colors of a pinto

-the booty of a quarter horse

-the neck of a hunter

-the cuteness of a pony

-many more.

Every horse is special and I don’t understand why some people cant see it. Just because you’ve never ridden/shown that breed of horse, doesn’t make them a lesser breed.

Explaining different riding disciplines to non-horse people

Jumpers- gotta go so fast

Hunters- based on how much money you have

Equitation- whichever rider is the skinniest wins

Ponies- spoiled little girls with crazy midget horses

Dressage- where people fork out thousands for dancing horses

Eventing- a triathlon for the insane where equitation doesn’t matter

Barrel racing- a competition to see who can do the best splits midair

Reining- the art of spinning really fast

Trail riding- a test to see how bombproof a horse really is

Western pleasure- drugs and glitter

Liberty- every single girl on Instagram who has a “bond” with their horse
