All Things Horse

Forty-seven Years Of Horse Experience – At Your Service!

If Horses were in High School, What Cliques Would They Be In?

Quarter Horses: Definitely jocks. Strutting around flexing those muscles, showing offcomic1
their butts…definitely jocks.
Thoroughbreds: Preppies. Sometimes athletes, never ‘jocks’. Monogrammed blankets, leather halters, Nike eventer shoes, the latest custom trailer and tack. They are the ‘new money’ rich.
Appaloosas: Could only be the stoners so they can watch their spots move
Shetland Ponies: Frightening, spiky hairdos, snotty attitudes and any color of the rainbow …. Gotta be PUNKS. Some even sport tattoos.
Friesians: Big, buff, and always in black, they are the biker clique Cigs hanging out of the corner of their mouths, dangerous glint in the eyes, daring anyone to cross their path.
Morgans: They’re the nerdy teacher’s pets, running around doing everything from yearbook to decorating the gym and ratting out the bikers, stoners and jocks. They have perpetual wedgies
Drafts (all breeds): No real clique, they’re just the big guys who sit in the back of the room and fart a lot (and then laugh). Who’s going to STOP them?
Icelandics and Paso Finos: They’re the little squirrely geeks who flit around a dance trying to fit in and fail miserably. The kind who wear Toughskins jeans from Sears (or would that be rip off WeathaBeetas??).
Ahkle Tekl (Akle Takl? Ackle Tackle….!! Akhal Teke!!): Foreign exchange student(s). And no one can spell their names either.
Hackney Ponies: A breed this manic would have to be a band geek. Marching along with their knees and heads held high…..even going to the bathroom.
Warmbloods: Old Money Preppies, as opposed to the TBs who are new money preppies. All their tack is imported from Europe, they drink Perrier water and eat only organically grown feed. They look down on everyone and talk amongst themselves about summer in Paris and skiing in Gstad and wasn’t it dreadful how provincial Spruce Meadows
has become?
Canadians: They’re the bookworms and computer geeks of the the horse world.
