And my frustration isnt just with saddles... it's their attitude with me and horses. If I'm not doing what they want me to do, I'm doing it wrong.
:/ some people are like that. So set in their ways that nothing else is remotely acceptable.
Yeah when people are like that, anything you say they'll just turn down.
One day you'll be able to carry on a conversation with them without them telling you to zip it. I know how frustrating it can be..
Sorry they're so controlling.. mine are the same way including just about EVERY OTHER ASPECT OF MY LIFE. From driving to studies to work to finances to relationships to my choices.
One day you'll be able to call your own shots without people being way unsupportive...
All I can offer you are two things: encouragement and support in the form of smiles, likes, phrases like "Way to rock it" etc.
