My 2 cents: (achem) Well your a payign customer so I would go over and tell her you want to show and if she says no... then ask why. If you're a good rider, then any excuse she would give would probably be absolutely ridiculous.
Because an only good reason to say no would be if you and your horse weren't ready or : we have so many riders we can't possibly fit you in because there is no room in the trailer.
Talk to the mother... Push push push. You want to show, she shouldn't stop you for such selfish (and immature) reason (if that is the reason of course). She should think of you as a prospect for promoting the quality of her barn and it's horse/riders.
Hope this helped... I can understand your frustration. :/
thanks Hidalgo13 I wish it was as simple as to many riders but its not im the only rider besides her daughter and its not because ertr not ready cause we can do a simple walk trot class no problem ya know but I just get this feeling she doesnt want me to show cause she's afraid of Shaggy beating her daughter and her mare ( whose suposed to have all this training but is completely crazy) and your right I need to talk to the mother but she's never comes up to barn (its on her property) when im there or anything. I've been trying to give her til spring to shape up but I don't think im going to make it!
