#TBT: What the Restaurant Business Taught Me About Horses

Horses and people: we’re more alike than we think.

After 18 years working in the restaurant business, I have learned that horses are a lot like people when it comes to eating. Most of them are a pleasure to serve, but there are a few that give me the opportunity to write lists like this. (Note: this is a tongue-in-cheek list — best enjoyed with a lighthearted sense of humor.)

1. Horses that are normally really nice can turn into monsters if they’re hungry enough.

2. Some horses are picky eaters. No matter what you put in front of them, they’ll still turn their nose up.

3. You can see someone’s true colors by how patient they are while waiting to be fed.


4. Some horses have really expensive taste, others prefer to eat crap.

5. How well they treat the person who feeds them is a reflection on how well they were raised.

6. Some horses will act like your best friend, until they get what they need. Then they don’t want to be bothered.

7. Everyone nowadays seems to be on a fancy diet.

8. Horses love to interrupt you when you’re serving someone else.

9. Young horses love to make a mess while eating. So do old horses.

10. Some horses inhale their food, while some take all day to finish.

Go riding!
