Haha depends on the situation you’re putting him in. Mine doesn’t get that badly hurt, he’s pretty good at staying a live hah.

I’m not really sure how you can get more damage resistant than that

If we’re going by that logic….
No dog ever asked a human to teach them to sit.
You’re simply showing a horse a new activity it CAN enjoy which provides mental stimulation.

You can show a horse activities that provide mental stimulation that don’t involve lugging a tired human ass around.
Why is this so rejected?
Dog being taught how to sit =/= a horse being trained to be ridden. Sorry.

The entire modern motivation behind riding a horse is for human entertainment. We are well past the age where horses are used for transportation and most towns and cities do not support anyone but police using horses for said reason.
As Havocados said, there are many different ways you can exercise a horse that does not involve sitting on their back, taking their control, and demanding that they go to a destination of your desire. It’s not about how nice you are or how beneficial it is to the horse; that’s the same kind of mentality that backs up the incorrect statements about how cows enjoy being milked or that they need to be milked and if you’re nice to them it’s ok. If horses truly needed human intervention in order to be exercised properly then I imagine wild horses would have died off by now.
Teaching a dog to sit is more often than not related the the safety of the dog and the people around it. My dad’s new Newfoundland puppy is absolutely insane and frequently accidentally hurts people because he doesn’t realize how huge he is and will bump, knock down, or nip at people because he wants to play. Teaching him to sit is beneficial to our safety and his because we do it so that he can calm down and get less rowdy so he doesn’t try to nip at people or hurt himself by running into something.
There is no doubt that horses enjoy companionship but there is no reason why riding on their backs is required to keep this relationship healthy (if it even is a healthy relationship at all.) It really seems like you’re struggling to insist that you enjoy horseback riding and refuse to give it up and instead are picking and choosing reasons to excuse the practice. Again, this is the same kind of mentality that prevents people from going vegan because they “like the taste of meat too much and can’t imagine giving it up.” This is the very mentality we shed when we become vegan.
I say this as someone who used to enjoy horseback riding and even worked at a stable for a few years: let it go.

Hi im vegetarian not vegan so will the recipes you post with milk substitutes still work if I put normal milk in there? Thanks ^_^

No. Do not ever use dairy milk in place of vegan milk. It would be incredibly gross and the biggest mistake you’d ever made.

There seems to be this strange fear from non-vegans that making a vegan recipe or eating vegan food will always be instantly bad so they MUST put something non-vegan in it to rectify it before they even had a taste. What vegans eat are also what non-vegans eat, yet somehow we’re the picky ones when you guys just can’t follow the recipe and will absolutely die if there’s almond milk instead of cow’s milk when you haven’t even tasted it yet.

I blinked at my phone, fighting simultaneous urges to hurl my phone across the room in anger and cry. Later that day, someone texted me my address — telling me they’d “See me when I least expected it.”

I haven’t been out to my car at night by myself since January 2nd.

Many are aware of my now infamous M&M’s analogy. After I made that post it was turned into a graphic and used without any of the context I put in the original post. 

I will admit that graphic has caused me a lot of trouble. Mainly because its intention is extremely misunderstood. I can’t tell you how many times I have been called a moron. 

I’m pretty sure I’m not a moron—even if people disagree with me. Though I’m not really bothered by what people think of my intelligence. 

I guess the part that bothers me is that they see my analogy as a suggestion rather than an explanation. 

History will show that those who were oppressed and marginalized often would employ general distrust as a survival strategy. In situations where they could not easily identify who their oppressors were, they would assume everyone was an oppressor until they knew otherwise. This was merely a tactic to keep them safe. 

I was not judging this tactic morally. I was not encouraging anyone to use it. I was merely explaining why some people feel it necessary to bolster their safety in that manner. 

I still stand by what I said. If a marginalized person is fearful of a systematic oppression that seems determined to harm or even kill them… I do not fault them for distrusting people as a precaution. For instance, if people of color were to be distrustful of all police officers after recent events, I would not discourage this. I think that is their right to do what they think is best to stay safe and alive. 

If you think I am in error and a moron for feeling this way, so be it. But it would be nice if you actually understood the intention of my statement before making that judgment of me.

Veganism is not about vegans. Vegans are people with all sorts of good and bad points. But that says nothing about veganism. Vegans are often the messengers of veganism, but don’t confuse the two. Veganism is the understanding that animals value their own lives and bodies, that animals have an interest in continuing their existence and avoiding suffering and that animals have the right to be treated with respect and justice and not to be treated as property. The logic of veganism stands independent of any individual vegan person.

For those of you who “would be vegan if vegans weren’t such jerks”: it’s about the movement, not the individual

If you’re doing a “hijabi” racebend or whatever please give your hijabi a country. A brown girl in a hijab can be literally any race. Please dont interchangeably use middle eastern women with muslim women. Like instead of Hijabi wonderwoman say Turkish wonderwoman the hijab you’ve drawn on will be proof enough she’s hijabi. AGAIN DONT USE HIJABI INTERCHANGEABLEY WITH MIDDLE EASTERN WOMEN
