    So frustrating.. sort of a rant

    Alright soooo have you ever met that one person who you just wanted to throw a spur at???? No?? Well I did tonight.
    Now im only 15 but this man honestly drove me bonkers. So to start off with he put the horses saddle on WAYY to far back and then threw a FIT when I told him he needed to get off and fix it. So we got that resolved... finally. Then (now the horse he was on is an amazing trail horse she will just walk and walk and walkk) he kept yanking on her face hitting her with the reins and being a total idiot when I would tell him to stop yanking on her he ignored me. Now I was trying to control my own horse who was being a spaz aswell as watching 3 kids + a 'child' aka father. He the proceeded to tell me how he could control my horse in whatever I put in his mouth and that he was stronger then ANY horse. As well as that there isn't any horse that hasn't been ridden. At this point I was biting my lip to keep from telling him to shut up. I finally told him politely that he was NOT stronger then any horse he again said he was..... BECAUSE HE WAS A MAN. At that point I blocked him out and was steaming. Now am I in the wrong for being upset with this guy??? Because I think I did very well behaving myself while still attempting to do my job with a 40 sumthin year old man trying to tell me I was wrong.

    He sounds like an idiot.

    I don't even bother to offer out advice to these sorts of people.
    I'm just a lowly woman after all.

    Do you give lessons to him or something or is he just someone you saw riding? Unsolicited advice usually doesnt go over too well

    I was supposed to be taking his daughters and one other girl for a trail ride but he tagged along and I honestly wish he hadn't

    Was he riding his own horse? If he wasn't I would have told him to "Get the F**K off the horse. Either you do as I say or you don't ride. End of story."

    If it's his own horse, theres really nothing you can do about it.

    This sounds tricky. If he tagged along on a horse that wasn't his I would've told him he needs to follow the rules or walk, better yet maybe just turn home and end the ride early and let him deal with whining daughters.

    He was quite obviously ignoring you due to your age. I think if I was in your position I would tell whoever the BO or head trail ride person is and ask to not allow him to tag along again.

    Lonestar- He was riding one of the ranch horses. The BO doesn't like him either but deals with him anyways. Now I wasn't sure what to do so I waited and went about letting the girls know what to do or when they were doing good but once we got back I told both my trainer and BO that I refuse to take him out ever again and my reasons why they both agreed.
    Zeke-that is what I figured and exactly what I said to the bo she agrees and said I wouldn't have to take him out again

    Glad you told the trainer and BO and don't have to deal with him anymore! Know-it-alls are so annoying!

    Zeke- haha yeah the whole ride I was seriously thinking about taking me reins and whacking his backside just to see how he liked it! Poor dally was so confused besides the fact that she was in a hackamore that he kept yanking on and then swatting her butt it just mad me ten times more angry. Haha I am very glad that I wont be dealing with him anymore. If it were a child I would have told them to get off or pay attention to me.. sad thing was he was worse then the 3 girls I was supposed to take

    I've run into 2(!) "cowboys" like that. Both thought the best training for the young horse (which is just learning) is to use spurs "to keep 'em going". Sigh.....

    Kitten_val- if he tried to do that to the horse he was on I would have deffinately grabbed my spurs and kicked his sides with them lol. The horse he was on is a bomb trail horse she will just walk and walk and walk and this guy kept pulling back on her face then when shed throw her head up trying to avoid the yanking he'd smack her on the but with the reins.
