Okay so my brother has a 27 yo horse, my brother is 10 yo so he is typically a good weight for his horse (not too heavy for him)
My mom pays cheaper board for him if he does a lesson once a week (he was their best lesson horse before they sold him to my brother)
Recently, my brother, two cousins and I have lessons and then right after my mom, her friends sister, her kids and another friend have a lesson right after us.
So recently only two/three people come after us so the coach is just letting them ride our horses after we are done with them (which I already think is unfair because we work them hard before)
So my brothers 27yo horse not only gets ridden twice in a row (without a break) ..but he gets ridden by a 300+ lb lady...I think this is totally unfair to him. It would be too much for my completely healthy 10yo horse...Nevermind a horse that already should be taking it slowly.
Last time she rode, she tried mounting from the ground and she actually made him fall and catch himself again..this literally made me sick to my stomach.
My mom doesn't want to say anything because she doesn't want to offend my coach..but this is making us all sad and worried about my brothers horse.
What do you think about this?
