About The Yearling
Well I've been riding her since she was 2. I think its extremely abusive, she's too young. She just now turned 3... Like last month. And the riding teacher always yanks on her really bad. My goal is to go into the Three Day Eventing circuit. My riding teacher is extremely stubborn and I believe she's even abusive! I don't know what to do or say. I know walk/trot/canter are the basics. I've been doing those since I was 6. I'm not trying to sound conceded, but my teacher even said I've "perfected" the walk/trot/canter! And she says my balance is amazing, my seat, my leg position, everything. She told me my jumping is amazing, my seat, my leg position, my hand position... I believe she doesn't want to lose money from a student leaving to another barn. But she won't even talk to me about it! She changes the subject right when I say something about it. I think she's abusive! I am riding a 3 year old, isn't that the age the horse should be started at? 3 - 4? The horse is a Gray Appendix Quarter Horse, she just turned 3 last month and she's 15.2 hands high. Everytime I mount she grunts and pins her ears back, I'm only 130 and 5'8.
Age doesn't show your maturity, it's your actions that do.
