I talked to her mother today, and she said that she has been through a lot, she said "oh she is just a little mean on the outside and sweet on the inside. she will get over it" I really dont think you can get over it, you have to learn. I had to do all of the work today, though thats not such a big deal, I LOVE DOING THE HARD WORK!! but eventually she will need to ;earn or she will not be able the ride. god thing is that today, the barn manager, found out what she was doing and she is not allowed to ride for the next two days!! i know thats not nice but she needs to learn, if not the easy way but the hard way. so I showed her how to cool the horses down the right way and she looked like she was listening,
I dont want to say that she isnt intrested but, some 8 year olds are great with horses and are really responsible. this girl, well just might be going through a stage that she just really loves horses. who knows. I really dont think the mother really understands her. NOW I REALLY DONT MEAN FOR THAT TO SOUND BAD OR ANYTHING i reakky sounds bad. I am trying to be strict and sweet at the same time cause I dont want to turn her off horses for ever if she really likes them. but I have mentored for three years now and I have never had this much trouble!!(sigh) makes me tired just thinking about it.
