So i'm 14 and went to my mom's friend's daughter's 9th birthday party at a barn. So of course I was excited to ride and stuff. So I saddled up the horse I got to pick and told them I had horses of my own and stuff and so I put on the bridle and right before I got on someone held the reins so I thought maybe he liked to scoot away or something. But then (mind you this was the girl I was talking to about my horses) she LEAD ME on the trail ride. I mean really! I think I can handle a horse on my own! I was so embarrassed! I hate being lead! I felt like a baby! Oh another thing was I couldn't even hold the reins! But when the trail was over she said the next ride ill let you have your reins. So I was all excited being able to ride by myself finally. NO she let me have the reins but attached a freaking lead rope to the horse and lead me -_- I was so PO!
