    It may have been an insurance stipulation.

    Being lead around is better than being tossed on a horse and finding out its green or worse...

    I was thrown on a very very green horse for a huge event and even though I have ridden many green horses before it was an awful ride. Because the horses owner, who had never seen me ride, assumed by my FB posts of all the horses I've ridden, including my own, that I could ride. Luckily I can but had I not been able to, I could have been killed or seriously injured when she reared, or when she blew up over a tarp. There were 200+ riders. This horse was not safe for this ride. I was very peeved that someone would just toss anyone on their very green horse. Very dangerous and irresponsible. Mind you I didnt know she was green until I was mounted and wiggled wrong (trying to adjust my seat and stirrups) and she blew up, literally almost flipped me and herself into the side of the trailer from rearing. I got her under control and was like wth!? Yup she only had 30 days on her, just home yesterday :/ grrr still peeves me!

    Another point I want to make is that every single time I get on a horse I don't know I have its owner lead me around for a few minutes. This allows both me and the horse time to get use to each other and feel each other out. There is nothing wrong with being led around and it doesnt make me a baby at all, just a smarter, safer rider. When I climb on a 3yr old stud for the first time, dang right I want to be lead around until Im confident and am in tune with the horses body language. I have ridden many many green horses and the ones I get lead around on are less likely to act up when I am finally riding by myself. The horse mentioned above. I just jumped on, if I would have made her owner hold her and walk her for a minute I would have figured out she was green in a much safer way.

    And lastly I would never ever ever put a kid on my horse that I didnt know and let them ride alone. That's just asking for trouble. I have put so many kids on my horse (Too many to count because she is a lessons horse), who take pics, and post on FB that they can ride... lol just cause you sat on a horse and took a picture doesnt mean you can ride. It would have been very very irresponsible if they had just thrown you on a horse and let you go. Those people were smart not to let you just ride off. I don't care if you can ride or not. Those people are obligated to their horses and its irresponsible to throw strangers on your horse and not supervise them, even worse would have been to put a child at risk because they assumed. My horse is used for kids lesons and I still wouldnt throw a random kid on her, pictures/horse owner or not.

    I'm expressing my opinion. When you post on a public forum other people can say what they want to. Sometimes in life you don't like what you hear but it doesn't make it any less valid. So instead of going on the defense, put yourself in our shoes and read your post. You sound like a spoiled whiny brat. I did not say you were one, just that in your post that is how you come across. And again in your last post you come off as a spoiled whiny brat again.

    1) you have your own horses
    2) you were at someone elses party, not yours
    3) just cause you have a pretty picture doesnt mean bull
    4) complaining because why? Because you didnt get to have things your way!

    I would tend to think, that there were too many kids at this party to figure out who could ride and who couldn't. That would take time that maybe they didn't have. I can see it now, a bunch of kids just put on horses and let go, lol. Like bumper cars. And just because you can ride does not mean that the horse would not act up, or someone else run their horse into yours, gosh who knows. There are so many things that could happen in a situation like that. Would be different if you were the only one there.

    Your right it was a pretty picture :) its one of my favorites. And yea your aloud to put what you want on threads but so can I. Im expressing MY opinion. And my opinion is that was rude to say. And just because it was someone else's party doesn't mean I couldn't ride by myself.. I was simply saying that I didnt like it. I never said it was wrong of them to do that
