From Fugly: Wiki said it all
My apologies for not doing a full post for Snarky Rider today. I worked long and hard on the Fugly blog post and am quite tired – also it’s a relevant discussion so why not bring it on over to SR?
Here are the highlights:
Big ass ugly bits being sold to “relax your horse, but will still let you be in control”.
Dumbass’s need to stop riding off their hands and causing horses to have ‘dead mouths’. If you feel your horse actually needs a bit like this then you need to go back and revisit his basic training. No horse needs a bit like this.
Seriously though, save yourself the $49.00, hit up your local hardware store (or Walmart) and pick up 5 inches of chain and just use that instead! Be sure to keep the paramedics on speed dial though, because I sincerely hope your horse dumps your stupid ass.
On an unrelated manner – SR is a proud finalist in the Best Blog category of Equestrian Social Media Awards!!! Wooo!! (Don’t forget to vote! -which closes on Feb 10!) A requirement of all finalists is that we submit a video for if we win, and if we don’t. Umm I’m a writer (or at least I pretend to be!), not a video-person-whatever-they’re-called. So I’ve struck an accord. A promising film student has graciously agreed to produce the videos for Snarky Rider in exchange for some exposure. To which I say: YIPPPPPEEEEEEE!!!!!
Actually, it’s pretty cool, they’re in a competition to win some start up money for their own film company. So please, stop by youtube and check out their video, all you have to do is watch. Easy, right? Please share the link as well – let’s help them win! Oh, and they have offered to donate $100 if they win to a charity of our choosing!
