A) Using pain as punishment is not cruelty so long as it is delivered immediately after the disobedience and it is released immediately after the point is made.

B) If others in your barn do not understand A above, then they are ignorant and poor horsemen.

Everything we do around horses centers around the infliction of discomfort (to some degree) as persuasion for them to do what we want and the release of that discomfort as a reward for their obedience.

The use of aids (bit, leg pressure, spurs, whips) all inflict discomfort to make the horse go, stop, turn, etc. When they do what we want, we release the pressure from our aids.

Honestly, after reading this whole thread, you seem to be under incompetent instruction and mounted on sour, ill mannered horses.

If I were you I would go somewhere else. If I were your father, I would take you somewhere else.

I don't know where I would go. My mum doesn't want to travel any further than 15-20 mins and I have already tried one other stables in the area (who were even worse than this one).

Will your mom let you volunteer at therapeutic riding centers? That's how I learned how to ride. I traded volunteer hours and they taught me all about horses. It's worth trying! Therapeutic horses need exercising and like to have an "active" rider on their back

Are you allowed to learn when your volunteering!? I always thought they wanted people with experience that know what they're doing! I'm not the best of riders...

Are therapeutic riding centers like charities? Do you get them in the UK?
