    To me it sounds like Mum wants her little darling to ride the horse and not the other way around.

    Right, okay, I was getting pretty mad by this point, but didn't want to sound like a b*tch by putting my two pence in to what they should really be doing. Plus, my Mum had come down to see the horses with me, and I didn't want to sound like a b*tch in front of her either!

    And now I'd feel so mean by trying to get out of it.

    Your horse cannot advocate for herself. YOU have to be her advocate. This means standing up for your horse and for YOURSELF, no matter whether or not people think you are witchy. Your horse, your rules.

    I don't care if you have the best rider in the country up on your horse... if she's used to certain cues, you'd better be telling the rider what those cues are and insisting that he/she stick to them.

    Nikelodeon, you're right, everyone who has commented is so right. I'm going to have to put my foot down aren't I!?
    By the way, the middle quote, nikelodeon, was actually my Mum, and I never want to sound like a b*tch in front of her - she can be scary haha (but I love her!)

    But you're right, her Mum does have a LOT of say in what H does. She was fuming because she'd spent a weekend away, leaving H in charge of the horses, and they only got a few minutes (hay, feed, water, done) and back to the boyfriend (don't get me wrong, have a life other than horses, but don't give up on your horses for some boy.) The rugs weren't taken off (it was a hot day for once! And not a cloud in the sky!) and the stall wasn't mucked out. I think S certainly wants more to do with the horses than H does. But that's a whole other rant haha!
