Horride girl at show

I go to my local riding club with my loan pony. However I discovered a girl who threatened to beat me up is also there. She really annoys me as I'm not a confident shower and she always teasing me over my loan pony as he is not the most energetic pony in the world. I'm not too sure of her, I always have my mum around but she continues to tease me and have a go. She is much older than me and shes only mad because my opinions on tack.
Should I tell someone at the riding club to tell her too keep away? I dont do anything to her.

dun, personally I'd just ignore her completely. And if she comes and talks to you just ask her naively with the big smile something like "are you afraid I can beat you?" Smile is a key - it freaks out people like her and they usually leave you alone. Remember, those who make a nasty fun by teasing another person (especially someone much younger) are not worth a conversation, attention, or respect. Don't worry - her behavior will turn around and bite her in butt big time one day!

kitten is right...bullies and people that do what this girl is doing are actually insecure...call it trying to psyche out the competition. It only works if you let it. Unless she does actually come at you physically, take her teasing as a challenge and as kitten indicated, if even bothering to give her (the girl teasing) the mild satisfaction of bothering to respond, not so much as ask as state that you know she is only teasing you because she knows you are the better rider. For most, it does make them blink when someone stands up to them, instead of getting upset.

If, however, she EVER comes at you physically, then you need to let someone know.

I feel really annoyed as my loan pony's owner used to be her best friend, I could give her a great big smile. She threatened to knock my teeth down my neck.

Shes lucky im not there... if i was there, i guarantee she'd never bother you like that again.

But since im not, ill give some advice.. DO NOT show her your afraid of her, because the minute you do, she will know she can say/do whatever to you. She sounds like shes either jealous of something you do or shes got some insecurites about her self.

How does she start the conflict? Say your in the barn brushing pony, does she walk up to you and say stuff?

Ugh i hate bullies.

I don't like that an older (probably bigger) girl is making you feel threatened at a place where you should be able to relax and enjoy yourself.I think you should at least make someone at the riding club know what is going on. She may be doing this to others too >:(

Basically she didnt like my opinion, I prefure to ride natural, she is a total opposite thats fine by me but my opinion is my opinion. Shes not at my yard, it just happens at a show or on a hack. Like today, my loan pony was being really naughty and refusing to move she brought her horse about 1 metre away and a gang of friends and start talking loudly mocking me about how im small and i'm a crap rider coz I ride bitless and she rides in tomthumbs. I dont mind that but thats my opinion Im not willing to change it. And she continues to b*tc* about me and untill the owner comes over or my mum does she actully stop. And its unfair as im new to the club although she knows everyone.

tell her she is being very immature, she shouldnt be picking on someone younger than her, thats probably why she is picking on you. like others said shes probably insecure about herself so she picks on someone younger than her to feel superior and thats wrong! and very immature.
