I think he was just being a typical teen guy who thinks he can do anything and wants to show off for the person he really obviously likes a lot. Guys do really dumb things to impress girls. I doubt he will do it again, but I would tell him he's on probation....another sign that he can not e trusted no matter how small and he's gone.

Guys do dumb things as do all people. He wanted to prove to her that he wasnt afraid but yes he should have listend to her. I wouldnt dump him just for that.
If it was cheating yes. If its for doing bad things yes. But this is one thing. IF he werent respectful in all ways id dump him.

But i dont think u should.

If I was younger and had a boyfriend who did something so asinine, I would dump him so fast his head would spin. What a dummy.

I'm glad my husband doesn't do stupid things around my horse, or he'd be in big trouble!

This post made me laugh so hard. LOL. I'm glad he's ok though. I'm just imagining the few seconds he did ride. lol. Hopefully the macho man learned his lesson. And no lesson can be taught so well as from a horse. ugh. men. :)

That sounds like something my boyfriend would do.....ugh. My handfull of a 5yr old i vent to him about and he always says "I will ride him for you" i say no and he gets all defensive. Grrr. I have yet to teach him to ride, and im kinda trying to avoid it... Im glad your boyfriend is ok, its just sad that he had to learn the hard way and did not respect what you said to him.

Wow, I would be incredibly pissed. I can't say dump him or not cause I don't know him or you but I do know that most reasonable teenage guys will often do incredibly stupid stuff trying to show off for a girl or just to prove that "there's nothing they can't do". Hopefully the fall knocked some sense into him (literally LOL) and he'll start thinking more often with his big head instead of his little one.

He's not 5, ok, maybe mentally but still. He needs to respect your knowledge and follow your direction when at the stables. End of discussion.

Luckily he only hurt himself. You may not have been so forgiving had he hurt the horse!

I'm glad he wasn't hurt to bad, that could have been really bad. Sometimes people need to learn the hard way. I have found though that trying to teach a boyfriend isn't the best idea. They don't tend to listen to us as well as they should. I've gotten to the point that if they are serious about learning then they can go get lessons from someone else and when they are ready then i'll ride with them.

Good luck with teaching him. Hope it works for you guys :)

Tell him that's his one and only 'get out of jail free for being stupid' card, and if he ever shows you such disrespect again, you'll dump him. Then stand by your word if he does.

Teenage boys are full of hormones and stupid, and not much else. Hopefully he's learned something, and will now treat you with the respect you deserve.

As the old saying goes, "There are 3 types of people in the world. Those that learn by reading, those that learn by observation, and the rest of us just have to piss on that electric fence ourselves." LOL.
