My boyfriend has seen my horse once..Tried to tell me she was just like his beagle and "OMG you yanked the lead! What'd you do that for!?" Because she moved too far away grazing and I gave a little jerk on the lead (she wore a chain OTN then) to get her to move back over.
Until I can trust her around him with him treating her like his dog (that he doesn't discipline either), he won't be coming around her again. I don't like being told I'm abusing my horse ("and no wonder she kicks at you") because it needs disciplined for something. He got to witness me beat her with the lead while she cowkicked, he wasn't too happy about it and blabbered the whole time about how bad he felt for her.
I'll try and teach him if he actually wants to learn (and get him his own to use), but until he asks to come with or Alahna is able to deal with stupid (she'll take total advantage), I won't be asking him if he wants to come with me to the barn.
If he never wants to be at the barn with me, that's fine. I don't want to go hunting everytime he does (though I am learning this year) either. I enjoy him for who he is, not who I want him to be (until he learns it's in his best interest ;p lol). If I wanted a guy that already knows how to ride and does such, I'd have dated someone else, lol. I think the challenge of teaching him or leaving him out of all my horse fun will be worth it in the long run.(:
