    You can use this forum to vent, but you should do it in a more mature way.
    Its okay you're just learning, we all have to.


    Maybe try educating your friend? :)

    Proud of you for seeing the error of your ways. Takes a big person to admit when they are wrong.

    Glad you see where you went wrong :). I know it can be frustrating, but it's no big. She's new to horses, and not everyone is born to be a rider.

    Very nice of you for reviewing the whole thing :)

    Many hugs from me as well.

    For future situations like this, to put yourself in their shoes, imagine instead of the horse an animal you know nothing about but you really like . I know nothing about elephants for example, but I do love them dearly.
    I'm sure I would be just as clumsy and scared but also thrilled around an elephant just like your buddy was around a horse

    I think it's fine to get out what you're thinking. And so what that you didn't space it very good? It's a rant, lol. You're just typing what's on your mind as it comes.
    I would suggest just helping your friend understand how horses behave, think & feel. She's obviously not been around horses for long by the way you describe her. It seems she thinks she an awesome, natural horse person so I wouldn't burst her bubble. Just make hints and suggestions, lol.
    I doubt that she'll ever see that post unless she's on this forum so I wouldn't worry about it. If you see your friend doing something wrong, don't get frustrated & ignore it, not everyone is used to horses. Just correct her as nicely as you can. I have to do this with my sister a lot. I give her 'mini-lessons', lol. Good luck!

    - Brie.

    Actually, every report or request to delete a thread goes to all of us moderators as well as the Admin and then we decide together as a group what to do. Just because someone requests that a thread be deleted, does not mean we just delete it. Usually if we deem that there is something to learn from the thread, anything at all, it remains. We believe this thread is one of those and it has been decided not to delete it.

    Alright, how about a thread locking request then? :)

    I believe the OP learned her lessons about posting, typing and ranting about clueless friends, admitted her mistake and was probably in an emotional state of mind anyways when she wrote the first thing.

    Considering she is (probably) also very young, any further bashing or hard words, even well-intentioned, might be hurtful.

    ..it's just a suggestion & a kind request.
