I'm a nerdy twenty-something female and a writer of equestrian romances.
Writing under the pen name Sasha Kay Riley, I am working on the Anderson Stables series (m/m romance that involves high-stakes show jumping and training retired racehorses).
#personal is anything about my daily life, my pets, and my family (none of which is too personal)
#opinion is anything where I share my opinion on political or social drama (I try to rarely post any of this)
#writing is anything related to writing in general
#relevant to my writing is anything, well, relevant to my writing (will likely be co-tagged with the series title)

Yea I think this is bullshit, but sadly, I see it a lot. (although, only on tumblr, funny that) Sure maybe when people first started using horses it could have been considered cruel. But they have now been bred for thousands of years purely for the purpose of being ridden. They literally have no other purpose in life. I don’t understand what people want us to do with the 58,372,106 horses that were in the world in 2006, and I can pretty much guarantee that number has gotten quite a bit bigger in the last 8 years. Do we let them all go wild? A lot will die. No doubt about it. Furthermore, cities and countries would be over run with horses who don’t understand what has happened to them, why they aren’t blanketed and why their feet aren’t being trimmed every 6 to 8 weeks. Sure, some horses probably don’t love working, but some people don’t like exercising. Individual personalities vary, but a lot of horses absolutely love their jobs. If you have a horse who doesn’t love working you probably aren’t going to be jumping it 6ft or doing GP dressage on it. Work with each horse individually, but the majority of horses will be much happier and live much longer if they actually have a job.

Posts aren’t my type and they are really small on your theme. :)
Well put together argument
So today I was working and a middle aged man came through my line. And he started making rather suggestive comments about “pretty girls” and “tall girls.” He convinced me to put my hand into a plastic bag promising it would be “an innocent joke.” So I did, only to have him ask, “is this the first time you’ve been caught in the sack with someone as old as your dad?” So I was really uncomfortable and he kept asking so I finally said yes and he said, “I don’t believe it.”
Turns out he’s a trucker, and had his truck parked right in front of the employee row outside. For hours.
When I left he was still sitting in his truck out there and I was so afraid to walk to my car that I was literally trembling. So my friend who works at the customer service desk told me to call the store. She literally rambled on with me about nothing until I was in my car with the doors locked and ready to go.
I am so happy she did that. If it was after dark I would have asked for the manager to walk me out, which I’ve done before in a very similar scenario.
