Giving Up riding.

I tried to ride Dealer again today , but I couldn't .
He doesn't listen to me and totaly ignores me.
I asked my Mum for my whip and she shouted at me saying if i wont ride with my leg , I won't ride at all! I was trying so hard to but he would'nt budge . This is the third day in a row this has happened and I know you shouldn't just give up but my sister is the golden girl , that gets everything she wants and my Mum just thinks shes a little ball of glory and that im useless.
So i've decided to call it quits , theres no point of me trying be something im not. I probably will not be on the forum very much , if at all .
Thank you to everyone who has helped me out , especially those in my last thread . Bye for now x

Wow. That sucks. What a way to discourage a person who wants to ride. I don't understand the situation or why your mum can't let you try things that may help for now. Not that you would use the crop all the time but until you can apply leg for a result why not? Sorry you feel you need to end your passion because someone is hard on you. Hope things can straighten out for you.

Its not just because shes hard on me , its as if everything I do is wrong. Im never going to be as good as my sister and everyone always looks down on me and they try to get me wound up and annoyed because they know that im going to give up. I don't see a point in trying anymore.

So can you prove her wrong? Do you want to prove her wrong and anyone else who doesn't believe in you? You need to rise above that crap and show them you are capable of getting a job done. However you feel necessary! How old are you?

Yeah that is hard. I'm sorry that you have to deal with that. Is your mom your coach/trainer?

I'm really sorry, parents can be rough especially if they seem to favor your sibling. I know it can be hard any maybe she doesn't want to hear it but have you tried explaining how you feel to your mom? It might help.

You are never better than anyone. Every rider has skills they need to improve. The only one you must compare yourself with, is you.

I haven't read the other thread, but have you ruled out something being wrong with him? Pain or something else?
