Wow I think her parents need a swift kick in the butt, if they lose their daughter they will regert not being good parents. I hope it all works out well for them, however I doubt it will.

Just wait till the first time that poor horse unloads her. And it will happen. Maybe she'll have a revelation while she's in the ER with a cracked skull. And she'll probably blame it on the horse.

I will never understand why some newbies never want to take advice.

You she will most definitely blame it on the horse, people that do stuff like that are just like that!

Strange but my sympathies lay with that poor horse! As far as the little girl goes, her parents are suppose to be looking out for her safety.

This will end very badly for all concerned. Poor horse.

Huh...what parents buy an untrained horse for their untrained kid and leave each of them to their own defenses...Sounds like a recipe for disaster to me.

a friend of mine is doing the same thing. She is 20 and bought a green broke arab. This girl has only been riding for 4 months, and she claims that she rode when she was younger. She rides like she's only ridden for 4 months, with out any proper training lol. The horse was broke, but she fell off from 2 baby bucks at a walk, and got a compression fracture on her spine.

It happens. Though it was not the horse's fault and if you can't stay on for a little buck at a walk, you have no reason to have said horse.

Oh, and she blamed it on the horse, as well. Fail.

I really hate this. People think they are fantastic in the beggining. People really need to meet the ground, or their ER physisan many times before they become even a tad bit humble.

I know. The parents shouldn't be letting her ride that horse. It wil become ruined and the girl will be hurt.

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky

Hmmm. Well her parents have never been with horses, but this is still no excuse. She wasn't at school today so I'm quite worried about that but I did warn her not to ride him. I feel sorry for the horse though.
