My personal pet peeve is people that work thier horses hard and then don't take the time to properly cool them out afterward. It drives me crazy! Case in point, last summer I went to a riding camp. On one particulary hot day (it was probably 90+ degrees in the sun) all the riding instructors were having thier students take it easy. All except for mine, she had us out in the bright sun working our horses to the max, jumping ect. All the horses were DRENCHED from head to tail with sweat when they were done. After all this she gave us only like 5 minutes to cool our horses out. Five minutes wasn't nearly enough time to cool out a horse that had just been working that hard. I was pissed and refused to put my horse away till I was done cooling him out. She got all bitchy and acted like I was doing something wrong. I was the only rider that stood up to her and bothered to properly cool out my horse. Wtf?
So yeah that's one of my major horse related pet peeves. Now it's your turn to share yours.
