Lol, I'm exactly like Faldor!
The other day, I was talking with my sister about having a horse carry a human without appropriate muscular development. I expressed my concern about her thinking of saddling up our ooooold mare, who hasn't been ridden in years. She claimed a horse couldn't build muscle without being ridden.
I thought she was supposed to know about muscle development, being she is a vet
Anyways, I told her I disagreed, and she disagreed with me, claiming I was completely and utterly wrong. I am quite darn sensitive when it comes to the horses and my beliefs.
My family (father and two sisters) are VERY old school when it comes to horse training, and consider me hysterical and crazy. Perhaps even stupid. They're all "jump-on-the-horse-and-start-riding"; don't really care about relationships.
Like Alice, I don't like arguing either; some things I'm completely cool with, but when it comes to things like the horses, I am VERY sensitive. Alas, I got quite upset with my sister as she patronised me quite badly.
(After I said one could certianly put muscle on a horse without riding it): "Well then, I'm looking very much forward to seeing you pack some muscle on your horses! *"HAHA-foolish-sister"-look-and-attitude*.
I felt like hitting her but just told her to butt out of my way of dealing with our horses (... with teary eyes, I'm embarrassed to say.
) But I sure do hope I'll prove her wrong, some day
