I''d show em how to jump alright. I'd jump right on them and pull their hair out... okay just kidding ... just ignore them, bullies love someone who will talk to them!
(and as for me..back to anger management)

"Told me if I can't jump I shouldn't riding"

That's your red flag of being in the presence of morons. They weren't born knowing how to jump.. honestly the idiocy of some people.

You ride and do whatever the heck you want! :)

Words to live by: haters going to hate.

Any yahoo can jump over some sticks or ride in a 20 meter circle. It's about HOW you do it. It's about mutual respect and partnership.

They are clueless. To borrow a phrase from Edie Brickell (sort of): their opinions are of no more significance than a smile on a dog"....

Ignore 'em. And if you find out they're messing up your horse, I wouldn't hesitate to ask the BO to use a different horse for their lessons. Life's too short....

It makes sense that your horse is used in lessons in exchange for free board, however it seems that you ought to be able to make a call on whether he is jumped or not -- especially if he hasn't been jumped much in the past and it isn't an interest of yours to have him be used as a jumping horse.

Just sayin', you might be able to keep these girls "grounded" on your horse... if you want to.

Tell them that if you can't work cattle your not a good rider. Haha. I have never tryed to jump. And wont unless it is with cattle around and I need to go over logs or something.
Just remember my rules
Never trust horse people,
And horse people will do anything to make them look better then you.

If you're not a good rider by not jumping, then logic follows a horse that can't jump is useless LOL. Seeing as how I own a few horses that can't jump (old injuries) but are doing just fine elsewhere this is obviously poop logic.

My arab who doesn't jump (has in the past, find out he had some back issues bc landing would hit a pinched nerve) was a finalist for America's Favorite Trail Horse this year. Pretty solid accomplishment imo.

Too bad these girls aren't at my barn. They could try to get on my arab and be politely bucked off haha! He HATES ring work! Fine by me as he's my trail horse and we go on vacation and camping together and ride for 8h a day at times :) yeah - really useless horse ;)

No. Plus not everyone is even interested in jumping.

As for those kids next time they ask you just smile and tell them straight it's not their business.
