Rider "Cocky-ness" and a "Know It All" Attitude
Does it ever feel like you are being snubbed whenever someone tries to 'teach' you something about horses? I mean I have grown up around horses.... until about 14. Then I was into teenage things and then off to college. Now I am 24 and I recently moved onto my boyfriends' parents' ranch where we have horses, a riding area, round pen etc. and I recently realized I wasn't as experienced as I thought it was, afterall a horse is hardly a bicycle, right? I was riding a horse without much time under the saddle. I was cocky and thought I had it going on. Then what do you know? He started at a gallop then went out of control (all while I'm trying to trot) and I bailed off...into a fence. My leg is all beat up from catching a hoof after I landed. Do you ever catch yourself being a horse "know it all" or do you know someone who is on?
