I can't believe that I am 32 years old and still fight with my mother. Is this normal?
We decided to take both boys (Dancer and Ranger) for a little stroll down the street. There is a spot on the road that has new construction. Dancer was acting dumb and not going over it, even though he's been over it several times. Since Dancer wasn't going over neither was Ranger. I told my mom to please wait and give me some room so that I could get him across. Every time I have to get him to get through something I ask for some space so this isn't a new request. I ask this because Dancer likes to back up fast or spin around and I prefer not to have any horse/rider collisions. She never ever gives me space and its so frustrating. She's always right up my bum and I end up getting angry. I try not to but since we always have this issue I'm getting fed up.
We got the horses through but it ended up in a huge fight which ruined the rest of my riding. She always says she just forgets but I don't understand how she can forget every time?! I know I sound like a horrible daughter but I want riding to be fun and not stressful.
