    You're doing the right thing, people like that feed off your anger so don't give her the satisfaction of getting mad. Keep your head high and remember to not care what anyone else thinks of you as long as your happy.

    Hang in there girl. Mean people suck.

    Stick with the people who are your friends, compete with her when you have to, or ride with her when you have to, but if she doesn't want to be friendly, and if you don't want to be friendly, then why pursue the friendship right now? Hang out with people who are going to have a positive influence in your life, not the ones who are going to tear you apart...

    Drama is all a part of being a kid, and considering that it was HER horse that the girl bought and is riding and made to go lame, I understand the drama completely. I also understand kids being stuck up about their riding abilities. I never had formal riding lessons-- my cousin taught me how to ride on her fat greenbroke paint horse and I won 5 out of 7 classes of my first competition three days after I first got on that horse... Against girls in the junior classes (I was nine, and just about to turn ten. The junior classes were for ages 10-15) who had been riding all their lives. Raised with it. They were all very arrogant and stuck up about their riding abilities and training and their "amazing" expensive horses. I was just thrilled to be riding and didn't expect to win anything. They were putting me down hardcore because I hadn't been riding for even a week, and I put them to shame.. But I wasn't arrogant about it. Just thrilled to have done so well. They were even more mean after it was all said and done.

    But, being humble sometimes can be the rise of a good rider, an arrogance the fall of a rider who could have been better.

    Leave the girl be. Let her do what she wants. It's out of your hands now, but just keep working hard and when you're training and competing don't think, "Oh, I'm going to crush her." Think, "I'm going to do my best no matter what."

    =] *bigger hug* It'll all work out fine. Maybe she'll see that arrogance doesn't get a person anywhere, maybe she won't. Maybe she'll see it in a few years.

    My experience tells me, though, that as soon as school is over with and people have to go into the real world, they start thinking about all the mean stuff they did and how immature it really was. I'd say 80% of people who were ever mean to me apologized once we got out of high school, and I'm now good friends with 40% of those people because I felt they truly did change for the better and would be good friends.

    It'll get better when you're older. PROMISE!

    Thanks Amelia. Im more mature then most people my age. If I wasnt so mature im sure I would have gotten a long with her just fine, but im not. Of well, its in the past now. Honestly, if I see her at a show I will probably just ignore her, which I know is comletely immature. But I know that if I even try to talk to her she will have some smart-ass remark and will be rude, so im not even going to bother.

    Thanks to everyone else for being so supportive! :]

    Well, if she tries to start conversation with you while you're ignoring her--which very well may happen-- just be polite and chat a little bit. Before it gets to the point of meanness from either she or you, politely dismiss yourself with a logical excuse like, "I need to get back to the horse," or "I've got a little bit more work to do," or, "I've got to help my mom out with something. See you later." And leave it at that. You don't have to be snotty and ignore her completely if she says anything to you, just dismiss yourself before it gets nasty.

    You'll be just fine. ^_~
