She's going to hurt herself.. =\

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!

It's one thing to put herself in a dangerous position, but to endanger others out of total disregard, not acceptable. Talk to the instructor or who ever is in charge. As for her ever saying to you "I don't care" well it would be the last time. I'd pitch a fit of enormous magnitude!

As far as her riding skills, or lack thereof, not your concern, that's what a riding instructor is for. Your concern is making sure she doesn't endanger you with her lack of common sense and skills.

Sounds like the hurt is inevitable and will be better for all involved in the long run.

Don't let her hurt you but sometimes.....experience is the best lesson, only lesson for some.

Hmmm...doesn't the instructer do anything during lessons? Maybe she needs to be 'banned' from the barn for awhile, and take some 'classroom' lessons in proper horsemanship and etiquette.

Call me mean, but I wouldn't let a student like that stay in my facility, because it may not be her that gets hurt, but someone else. She needs to change or move on...jmho.

She actually did hurt herself a litle while back, has changed nothing about her. =\

Doesn't sound like the facility you're at has much interest in people's safety. That girl wouldn't last two seconds at our barn. Respect for horses and other riders comes first. They're too big to be messing around. Any other places you can go that might be more responsible?

I love my place, but this girl really annoys me! Also, she told me that she "hates any horse who isn't perfect". And I'm like, "Uh, you can't be good if you can't control a misbehaving horse" and she's like, "if you can't control them, they're BAD." Ugh..
