    I tried to edit my last post but I ran out of time. Anyway, the gist of it was I am adopted (not anyones business) so I am well aware of what I have and am very greatful for my life. I finished 3 years of university with a 3.6gpa. I bought everything myself and I find riding and showing a sacrad thing. And the pressure from my parents make me not want to go this weekend. And I LOVE showing, nothing will stop me. Obvioulsy except for unrealistic expectations. I thought about what I said and I clearly did not get across what I wanted.

    I will continue with what my coach says, she is AMAZING. I would follow her to the ends of the earth and back and I trust her 100%. My issue was is that I really -really got my hopes up when she said I could move up and then I felt like I went backwards, that's all.

    And for showing, someone would kill for one lesson a week. I used to work at a barn 5days a week for 3 hours a day for 2 lessons. I got the real bargan lol! So I should be greatfull and I am- trust me.

    In no way did I say I have evil worst parents in the world. I have the best parents in the world but them judging me and pushing me to do something when I'm obviously trying. I don't try to hit rails. So please stop with that. That's not right at all. I'm not 7 years old crying because I don't get what I want. I work my but off for everything I have. So just stop. Your reading too much into this. My parents are not against me..

    And for me being my parents little precious... uh huh.. I bet you have a whole image in your head of what I look like and act like eh?

    Anyway. As for going out for trail rides that's great idea. I may not actually be bored with the height, I may just be bored with the routine. I do the same thing 6 days a week every week. Same with the gym, I go to the gym 2 hours a day min. To keep fit for my riding and showing and trust me.. I get bored VERY fast. I never thought of it that way at all so thank you so much!!! That may just be what I need and I wasn't thinking outside the box.

    So all and all. Thank you for those who didn't read too much into this and take things WAY out of context, and for the others who think I'm some kind of horrible rotten spoiled ungratefull snobby "my parents are evil and against me" type of little brat. Go away. No one has to post any more comments on this I've heard more than enought.

    I just know next time.. have a problem. Don't POST IT ON HERE and talk to the people :)

    I am the show mom :) I help bath, clip, make sure everyone's hair is in place. I am the photographer, I am the supporter both in time, cost and the cheer section. I love to ride my own horse, not my daughter's. Not my job to tell her anything about riding her horse...she has a trainer for that. I will say I am not qualified to tell her anything either :) I always just send her into the ring with a wink and a smile.

    Looks like some of us jumped to conclusions, sorry about that. In my defense, it might have helped to post some of what you just said in the original post, like the fact that you're an adult and you pay for everything. You have every right to determine with your coach what classes you enter. Listen to your parents' advice, but if they don't know squat about riding and showing, take it with a grain of salt. Let your coach know that you're more interested in moving up right now than staying at your current level to win High Point, but expect her to dissent and tell you to stay where you are. Try to compromise with her so you can both be happy.

    Good luck!

    Thanks, I should have filled in the blanks a bit better but I was a bit upset writing the first post and was on my cell phone so my spelling was horrible which may have made it look like I was a lot younger than I actually am.

    Well, I didn't need any blanks filled in... my post still stands no matter your age. I am the show mom :) I am not the rider, the trainer or the judge. Still send my daughter into the ring each and every time with a wink and a smile.

    Wickednag: horse show moms or dads are a GOD SEND. My horse is easy to handle but it is a hard job and one only a mother or father would do for free! Long hours and horrible pay lol. Thank you for being a show mom and a supportive parent!
