Yence the reason we refuse to host family hoilday get togethers, yet as I type I am cooking up a storm for our little band of misfits ( our closest friends) & we are having a "family" get together tonight. Family isn't always blood, it's the people you chose to love

I want to see some photos of him opening that Christmas saddle.

I remember the year I got my very own, new to me, saddle. I just couldn't have been happier.

I've met many great horsemen who ride english and/or western. My personal preference is english however, so I tend to meet more english riders.

I cannot even express the respect I have for some of these men. Two men I know have been riding their whole lives, and are better horsemen than any of the young cowboys I've met. One of them used to hunt, and that is definitely not a very girly thing to do!

Taffy, have you ever tried to wrap a saddle?!?!?!? That sucker is getting a bow stuck on it & set on it's rack next to the tree. I'm betting though, if you listen carefully, about 5:30 in the morning on Christmas, you'll hear the howls of joy all the way at your house.

I am going to be listening!

I found this photo, in 1973 I think. I had gotten "Taffy" in August, This photo was Christmas Morning with my new Saddle, New bridle and that new saddle pad. I think I was 13.

And yes that is a pig right in front of "Taffy".

If it were me, I'd be telling him if he doesn't stop treating your son that way, that he can't see him.

Children need to be taught it's okay to do what they want, and nobody should look down or make them feel bad. He\s 9 years old, don't kill a childs confidence.

Sorry but that type of behavior is bs.

I love pig ignorant people like your F-I-L they are usually easy to get them to make fools of themselves, failing that a lump of 4X2 usually helps knock sense into them!

Your son does need protecting from him, I just feel sorry for his Grandma bit in not seeing him as much as she could and for being wed to such a man!

If he is worried about your son turning gay because of riding English, buy him Brokeback Mountain!

Hats off to your son. It sounds like your boy has talent and is goal oriented.
We want to see Christmas photos!

And your FIL is an ass, plain and simple.

I woke up at 5am & found him sitting on the couch watching cartoons with his saddle in his lap.
