    I do not know any stables around here that have that rule or strongly discourage parents from watching.


    I do get the point that the gymnastic place is trying to make. Which I suppose is probably the same point barns are trying to make. The kids will pay better attention to their trainer if they are not distracted by their parent over on the side lines.

    But................

    Ah no no, I understand ....encouraging the parents to allow the child to focus on the lesson and not get distracted by their presence.

    However I would appreciate if you would be allowed to take a sneak peak from time to time.

    Where I used to ride, most parents (except that crazy mom I described earlier) would sometimes even get out and go to the stables, pet the horses, drink a coffee, they were never staying all hour in there watching their kid.
    They simply understood a child needs to know you trust them sometimes and also they simply feel les pressured when you are not around too in some cases.

    But they would still come back towards the end of the lessons and have a short chat. The instructor usually gives them a sum-up of the whole thing " She did great, her balance improved, she needs to focus more on this and that"

    Parents weren't allowed IN the room where my kiddos took Ballet Lessons but the studio had a 1way mirror, so they could sit in the lounge room and watch, so I was fine with that.

    Dropping my kiddo off at her lesson would be the most pointless thing I could do. The barn is 45mins from our house and 20mins from ANYTHING. Her lesson is 30 - 45mins long and as she's all of 6, she can't tack or un-tack the horse, so I couldn't make it home and back in her lesson time. Now I could go into *town* but I'd make it there in time to turn back and we're talking a town that doesn't even have a grocery store. There's a couple gas stations, couple restaurants, a convenience store, an auction house and a hardware store. So there would be zero point in going to town.

    My kids watch my lessons during the summer (I can't leave them home alone), so it's all fair! LOL

    I loved when my mom watched my lesson and wished she would do it more! She and my father aren't "horsey" and tho they've always been supportive, when I got to a certain age mom stopped coming. I too spent many long days dropped off at the barn to do my own thing but I loved when mom would watch me ride.

    My mom used to watch every single one of my lessons, she actually became a better rider just from watching and she was my toughest critic, which made me an even better rider.

    My parents almost always watched my lessons but they would sit up in the lounge area where they were far enough away that I couldn't hear their comments/see them.

    Lolz my mom would have a cow if she wasn't aloud to be with me haha at the place im at now its not as bad cause she has her own horse so she grazing her in the weeds and watching my lesson

    Idk about everyone else but I try to do better when my mom and dad are around they are very horsie people and I want to impress them lolz the only time my dad did anything anoying is when he said my horse just didn't want to work while really my poor boy wasn't fitting with the saddle I got off lolz and I was right but my dad dosen't know that xD let him have his fantaseys xD

    Plus with my mom and dad being horsie people their advice is welcomed and i'd get upset if my instructor said anything mean to them!
