If At First You Don't Succeed....Try And Kill Your Kid


Just a short rant.

At my show the other day there was a little girl who was about 10 or so. The horse she was riding was new and faster than her old horse. Well apparently she was having a hard time keeping her feet in the stirrups and a little trouble keeping her balance, so guess what her mom did................................She DUCT TAPED her child's feet into the stirrups. I'm sorry but that is a very good way to kill your kid. Newer/faster horse+no balance+feet duct taped into stirrups= disaster if you ask me.

Sorry just ranting and wondering what is going through some people's brains when they come up with these good ideas.

That's horrible. Did the lady not realize her kid could seriously get hurt?! People just don't think sometimes it makes me mad. If the mom was smart she would have rubber band her daughters feet in the stirrups, that way if she fell or something happened they would snap and break, and her child wouldn't be in danger with rubber bands on her feet. Did anyone say anything to that mom?

Dusty and themacpack----- No one said anything. I was walking past with my friend and I said extra loud "Me and my BO's motto is SAFETY FIRST(emphasizing those words) and if you aren't going to be safe, you have no business being around a horse." That got me a dirty look. I probably shouldn't have done it, but I couldn't bring myself to walk up to her.

I'm not a confrontational person, I wish I was but I have the "Stay quiet and please all" personality unfortunately.

That mom should not have given you a dirty look. It's pretty sad when you are worrying about the well being of a child you don't even know more than her own mother. That's bad parenting. She's extremely lucky nothing serious happened to her daughter or the horse didn't act up while her child's feet your duct taped to the stirrups. It's very ignorant in my opinion and just asking for something to go wrong. It kinda surprises me that no one said anything though. At least you tried to get the point across even though you didn't confront her.
