Oh wonderful...he is being rewarded for his attitude with a young horse to start? I see two outcomes..neither good. Either the horse is ruined/neglected (going on past history of not taking proper care when ticked) or he gets himself or his friend injured.

Unfortunately, there is really nothing the OP can do to convince them that this is a bad idea other than advising against it.

Yep, realize that..just shaking my head at how people (the kid's grandmother) think that type of behavior should be rewarded. Maybe the OP's grandmother could have a little chat with the other one.

I do have one question though...why are you letting your other friends ride your horse?

If this is a good horse, that could well ruin him.

I rarely ever let anyone else ride mine, and then usually in round pen with me present.

What it takes you five years to train, can be ruined in five seconds by someone else.

Horses make me a better person.

One of the biggest problems with horse sharing is ego. Each ego feels the other isn't doing things correctly. Someone who pampers and loves on a horse may feel a more direct approach to be akin to abuse or a non-caring attitutude. On the other hand the more direct approach may think the other will never win the horse's respect. It becomes a no-win situation. We are hearing one side of the story and who knows, perhaps once the young lad has his own horse he'll do ok. With horses beginning to hair up for winter, Bug may have been itchy and rolling. After a run he'd definitely be itchy and wanting to roll. It may not have been colic at all. Usually the horse will lay down, do a half hearted roll and lay there and look and nuzzle his side. An itchy horse will roll vigorously then get up and either buck and scoot or start grazing.

I grew up in a huge family just like Diego (I am the youngest of 7) and my thing was horses also but I never dealt with this exact scenario so how about your grandmother, Diego and you get together and talk otherwise you are just gunna have to ride out the storm and if your grandmother is really noticing Diego's wrongful actions he will probable end up the one either riding allot less or not at all and he will learn something from that!
