Know-it-all horse people

What know-it -all do you have to deal with at your barn?

I ride with this girl who majorly needs riding lessons. The problem is, when she takes a lesson, she acts like she knows more than the person teaching her. And she constantly bosses me around tells me what I'm doing wrong. Consequently, She never learns anything and continues to blame her horse when she can't control her. She can't even hand her dead-broke bomb-proof trail horse. Anyone else have friends like this?

I believe that people that try to convince you they know-it-all are very insecure people. In a sense, they are trying to convince THEMSELVES as much as you how wonderful they are. They are typically un-teachable as well .. because, well, they know-it-all. Lol.

I don't keep my horse at a barn, so fortunately don't have to deal with that in person ... but there are plenty of them on the internet to make up for it! You will encounter them on this forum also .. same rule applies, imo.

Don't let her get to you .. it's her that has the problem.. imo.

My aunt is a know-it-all, which really sucks because for a long time, she was the only horse person I knew. I mean, I get she made it to nationals on her paint mare, but, doesn't mean she knows EVERYTHING! Lol, so, I get the whole know-it-all stuck up attitude

I would not entertain the thought of having a "friend" that bossed me around. They all know better.

Friends like that don't last long around me! But if y'all board at the same barn, looks like you're stuck with her :o

I'm pretty much stuck riding with her. :( The best thing I can do is just tune her out. :)
I think the main problem with her is that she wants my gelding, so she's trying to make me think I can't handle him or something. Fortunately, she's not getting to me, because I'm very aware of how badly she rides.
Any tips on how to stay safe when I ride with her? Her horse is a gem, but she has no control of her whatsoever.

No, I don't, for a reason, too- I wouldn't keep someone like this around, lol.
I think the best solution for this is to kill her with kindness? She sounds like she's got some really low self esteem... But remember, being kind isn't the same as letting her walk all over you.

My 11 year old daughter....
Nevermind that I've been riding for 21 years longer than she has, I don't know anything! (unless her horse is having a training issue, then I'm right up there on a par with God in her book, as long as I do the work myself...)

Thanks. :)
She's not really a friend, she's the only person I can go trail riding with at my stable. (All the other boarders are older and she doesn't like riding with them because they try to help her by giving her advice) I'm not allowed to go out on the trails without a riding buddy.
