Top Ten Horse People Personalities

Top Ten Horse People PersonalitiesIf you're anything like me, you've met your fair share of the unique and bizarre people in the horse world. Look through this list, and feel free to comment which ones you think you are, or you know. You'll find everyone from the equestrian model to the future Olympian, and much more!

1.  The Crazy Trainer
This type of horse person usually gives lesson to younger kids. They were valuable trainers and would bring blue ribbons to all their riders... About fifteen years ago. Now, they have no concept of the word 'safety', and would rather watch young beginners stand on their horses while playing a good round of Red Light - Green Light than watch their favorite student perform a dressage test.

2.  The Exaggerator
If you haven't met one of these yet - you probably will eventually. This person loves to stretch the truth as far as possible. For example: "Me and my horse Diamond Princess just jumped six feet!" Reality: Diamond Princess went over her first cross rail without knocking it over.

3.  The Only-Into-Horses-Because-They're-Pretty
Luckily, I've never met one of these before. But you might have. This person will usually miss lessons for excuses like sleeping in or bruising a thumb. Steer clear of this person while at the barn.

4.  The Over-Achiever
Don't get me wrong, over-achieving isn't a bad thing. Unless this person has a too-serious case of over-achievement. If the person will work their horse too hard constantly - until they get the perfect knee tuck throughout the whole course, or lowers their head perfectly so their rider can get the lasso where they want it - then they are a bad over-achiever. The good over-achievers will go above and beyond, to an extent. They know when they should cool off for the day and when to take breaks.

5.  The Fashionista
This person will have all the latest equestrian apparel trends, and tend to put up with itchy breeches or slippery gloves - all in the name of fashion. Now I don't know about you, but I'd prefer my handy dandy paddock boots over uncomfortable boots any day.

6.  The Down-to-Earth
This person is usually the most pleasurable to be around. They are not crazy, unless the moment calls for it. These are the most common types of horse people, in my experiences at least.

7.  The Snob
We all know these people are never fun. Even if we've never met one, just the thought makes us gag. These think that whatever they're doing must be better than what you're doing. Just because they're themselves. Don't let these people get to you, or else you won't enjoy your barn time. Times are better when they're not around.

8.  The Know-It-All
These people are often referred to as 'Walking Googles'. If you have a question, ask this person. But be careful and do your research before you go for a ride with them, or else they'll be correcting you left and right. Know-it-all's can be helpful at times, so get to know one.

9.  The Dreamer
These people can be a good refresher after a long week or two filled with lessons and training. They remind you of the things they plan for you both in the future regarding horses (many have the Olympics in mind) and can usually turn a negative outlook into a positive one quickly. They are great friends to have around.

10.  The Beautifier
This type of person spends more time spiffing their horse up than they do riding. They'll brush every speck of dust off their horse's coat, then remove every tangle from the mane and tail. Sometimes, they'll even go to the extent of braiding. These people may not be as good in the saddle, but they sure know their way around the grooming box! There's nothing wrong with these people, though.

I am the #10. :)

But unless I don't have time. Then I try not to worry about that last tangle. :)
I love my horses to be spotless. And I wish they would stay that way, but sadly my horses have this issue with being clean. :D Hahaha!

I'm 6, 8, 9, and 10.
My friends tease me about knowing horse genetics. XD "Does this horse have an agouti gene?"
I love grooming. It gives you time to get to know your horse, and just relax. I love riding, too, though. I braid whenever I have time. ^^

I've met one person who is #7 and the bad #8. Trust me, you want to avoid them at all costs.

I think when I'm with Dee I'm a #4/8/10.

Another one you should've added, The Avoider. Tries any possible way to get out of doing any work or train their horse, then gets mad at the horse when it doesn't do good in shows.

That kind really annoys me.
