Lately I feel like im getting no where in my ridding. My horse seems to go backwards right when it seems like he's getting something. I was going to start barrels this year on him but his gerneral ridding still needs work, and I would love to start showing but he's not ready I love him and he's so much fun but I don't know what to do. I've shown my moms horse s few times and he's done pretty well but he doesnt have the speed to do any real showing. He would be better for a younger rider to show but is fine with doing anything else.
My mom wants me to show I told her there is one this weekend and she said lets go now her moms coming up and says do you really have to show this weekend? I don't want to leave you there by yourself. Its not really a one person thing he is new to showing and I would need help and she doesnt understand. She keeps saying that I should do rodeo but I feel once I do she wont want to come like every weekend this summer theres been a show she finds something else to do a few days before and I can't do it all myself. I bought her her horse a year ago and she's ridden about 6-8 times in the past year.
Does anyone feel like this? I just don't know what to do.
