    Unhappy I dont think i can do it anymore : (


    I went \back to horse riding today and everything went good, but my instructor didnt teacher me anything new.
    People kept saying a whole lot at once, telling me to smack him with the whip, telling me to jusr let him go, I was just like one at a time, and preferably the instructor.

    When I got off, bobby snuggled me and then this other girl got on.

    At first she was alright with him, but people sometimes take him for a burn and after a jump he thought he was ment to go for on, but the girl got angry and for the rest of the lesson she was kicking him, and yelling at us, when I say kick I mean hard enough to see the ripples where she kicked. I didnt get to spend much time with him, again.

    I don't think I can do it anymore. I love this horse to death and they wont let me near him, and I have to watch this happen to him. They treat him like he is a wild animal I tight hold on his lead rope, smacking him, I can't watch this anymore. Why do they do this? I was him onn a loose lead, keeping an eye on him, talking to him, and he just walks behind me, or rests his head on my shoulder.

    They only thing I can think of is to leave, as much as I don't want to. Im in the middle of getting a horse of my own, but I need to find one.

    Could you tell me what to do? Could you tell me why they treat him this way? Could you sugest the perfect horse for me?

    This is what I cann do:-

    I've been riding for about a year and a half, had pass experiance, nothing major.

    I can walk, trot (post and sit) canter (sit, forward seat, and one hand) jumps (not such how big) I know how to yeild. Im a pretty confedent rider, the horse I ride pig roots, kicks, lunges (like the jumping toward you and chasing you) and I do well controling him, he's only ever done that once with me. And yeah anything else you need to know tell me.

    The thing about crossroads is you can sit in the middle of the road otherwise you'll get run over. And I totally sympathize about having to stand by and watch the horse you love be mistreated but such is life when you don't own the horse. If your funds can allow it have you thought of asking to buy him?

    It has crossed my mind but umm....i havnt got the guts. I can take on a horse that does all this, yet I can ask to buy him. I would love to having him, evenn my mum wants me to have him, she's seen how he is with me, but I havnt got the guts to ask, they gossip there and if I say know, they might talk aout it and then people will laugh at me : (

    You have to also remember that you did go back to riding. The instructor probably wanted to start from the beginning and see what you remembered and/or forgot. You can't expect to take awhile off and then just jump back into it, you have to start slow. Don't listen to anyone else but the instructor! I hate when other people are in a lesson with me and they do that.

    When do they hit the horse?
    I hate to say it, Horses are wild HUGE animals. You can't treat them like your kid or your dog. They can hurt you, without even meaning it. You need to be firm with them because once you let them get away with something small; it can turn into something huge that can put you in danger.

    Why not have your mother ask about buying the horse? She can pretend it is a gift for your or something.

    White foot I understand what you said, were all firm with them but they hit him for the stupidesst reasons. One of them have hit him just cause he wouldnt let her hug his neck.

    Always behind, ill see what my mum thinks about that

    Sometimes in life when we want something we have to reach out and get it. Talk to your instructor about purchasing him. Worst case scenario, she says no, and things are no different for you than they are now.

    Try to think of it this way:

    Wouldn't it be better to face a little embarrassment now for the horse you love, than spend the rest of your life wondering if you could have had him if you had gotten up the courage to ask?

    I also love the get your Mom to ask idea if she thinks he'd be a good horse for you. Moms have the perspective of age to realize that most embarrassments are very temporary .

    Ill talk to my mum about your ideas tonight. My mum has a way of getting her own way ; D haha. Thankyou sooo much for all your help. Ill keep you posted on what happens. I hope she says yes....the only thing is that they gossip. If she says no, then everyone will talk about it and then ill most probebly get a huge lecture from my instructer and what if she never lets me near him again? I wouldnt be able to stand it : (

    I think you should just ask. I mean, really - who cares what the stupid kids there say anyway? In a few years time you'll regret not having asked about him.

    As far as once you have a horse - the most important thing is to be at a stable where you'll both be happy and confident, and have a trainer who has the best interest of the horse at heart. Someone who will push you just enough but won't make you do things you're not ready for. This person can help you find the perfect horse for you.
    But seriously - ask about the lesson horse. You don't have to do it in front of everyone. Take your trainer/barn owner aside when she's not super busy, have your mum there so she knows you're serious, and ask!
