A friend of mine, let's called her.. Bob.. is very annoying when it comes to horses.
When we're in a lesson, she always wants to pass everyone and lead, even if her horse is too slow. She doesn't take care of the other riders in anyway. I'll be riding a very skiddish pony and ask her politely not to go near him, cause he'll spook, and she'll say she doesn't care! She stands up in her stirrups instead of jumping position, and I know that's just novicity, but she doesn't listen when we tell her it's not right, and expects our instructor to let her jump higher.
She wants to lease next year and frankly, I think it'll be disatrous! She was telling me about the horse she wants to buy: A formally bred, green broke FILLY. I kept telling her that'd be dangerous, but she just keeps saying, "Noo, she's trained!" Trained doesn't mean safe.. =P I asked if she was english and she's goes, "yeah, doesn't jump but like, they say she'll make a good jumper!" Of course, this girl doesn't know how to train a horse to jump.. Ugh.
I just can't talk her out of this fantasy she has that she knows everything about horses. Help!
