I'm with this BEP on this one. Her dad might be like that, but its not like she didn't do anything to not be treated that way. No offense bb, I know what it feels like, but ditching? While being grounded? What were you thinking girl!
This is why you need to go to class, and not ditch.
Now, on an even less pleasant topic, what do you do if you think you're being stalked online? This person's sole mission in life appears to be to make me feel like an idiot and to imply [and occasionally outright state] that I am abusive, cruel, and neglectful. I don't like it and I've had enough... [they don't succeed in making me feel like an idiot though - I think it was Eleanor Roosevelt who said "Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent" wasn't it? I live by that]
Well I figured I would update, I finally got a lesson in now that crew is done and can start riding again! I was going to ride my regular draft lesson horse but she was in a mood yesterday and was charging and kicking everyone so I rode the BO's personal horse.
Holy crap. Riding a well-trained, personal, light, sensitive horse is so much different from the lesson horses. At first I didn't like it, but slowly it just got better and better, I wish I could get all of my lessons on her! With a tiny half halt she stretched into the bridle, I never had to touch her with my lower leg except for some canter transitions, ahh it was great! I'm not sure who I will be riding next week, but wow she was great!
Oh yeah, I know that feeling Almond Joy! I went from am stubborn, unwilling horse that wouldn't listen to me to a horse that is amazing! She really listens and pays attention and takes light rein pressure even with a snaffle bit. Doesn't break a gait and will change gaits with a cluck or two and changes smoothly. She's a great horse! Only problem I've ever had with her is that when we were trotting, I don't know what happened, but she tripped and fell forward hard and launched me from the saddle and into the fence. I tried to pull up on the reins to keep her from tripping but she went down haha. She was ok though, she had that look like "uh...I meant to do that."
