5 Reasons that proof Horse Owners are actually completely crazy, or are we?

Lists

Ok, so there might be some truth to the saying we are “horse crazy”.



I personally think that owning a horse is one of the best things I could possibly ever do, but if you think about it there are so many reasons why a lot of people think we are crazy people for doing so. Because of this, I made a list of 5 reasons why they might think so, even though it might forever still be a riddle. ‘Crazy Naughty Smiley face’

1. We spend so much money on horses

Well, some people have expensive hobbies and then there are horses. If you consider the amount of money we have to spend on horses through the course of our lives on stuff like barn fees, riding lessons, shoes, vet’s, riding equipment, saddle’s etc. not to mention the actual horse then I think most calculators would start to malfunction on the sheer size of the sum. Imagine saving all that money, you would probably own an enormous house with 3 cars and go on international holiday’s at least 2 times a year. Crazy you might say? I think not.

2. We ride on animals 10 times our size

Horses are a living creature between your legs with amazing reflexes, spooked very easily by many different things everywhere. Yet we mount up and get on without fear. We can be thrown off in the blink of an eye, are we crazy for getting on in the first place? Most definitely not.

3. We spend crazy amount of time and money to win a ribbon

You know that just about any dollar store or almost any store can sell you a ribbon for next to nothing right? Well, we are willing to fork out hundreds and thousands for the opportunity to rather win one of those you know? Sounds crazy right? Think again.

4. It’s not if you will get hurt but rather when you will get hurt and we know it.

I have been kicked by horses, I have fallen off countless times, my only time spent in the ER was because of a horse and my broken ankle was because of a horse. We will get back up in the saddle again and again and again. Am I crazy you might ask? Why is that crazy huh? It’s not, Ok!

5. What is a conversation about, if it is not about horses.

Whether you’re with your ‘horse crazy’ friends or with normals, we talk horse. That is the fact of life and you need to deal with it. If you don’t understand what I’m talking about then just realize I don’t understand much you’re talking about either so if you think I am crazy you are making a huge mistake because I think You are crazy.

There you have it my list of 5 reasons why people might think we are crazy. Being ‘horse crazy’ is all worth it, maybe we are crazy for loving and owning horses but I wouldn’t trade it for anything else.

If you are one of us (horse crazies) then please add to the list by commenting below. Also, share it with your friends maybe they can give us their insights too.
