I'm done being cut down. I'm just sick of coming on Facebook and seeing something I know is pointed at me and feeling bad about it. You know who you are. I'm going to be great someday, and I'm not going to be stopped by somebody's mean words. Grow up.
Yes, you ARE going to be great some day. And perhaps her aggression is simply out of the fact that she finds you threatening, because you ARE becoming a very good rider and equestrian. A lot of older equestrians see budding, young horse lovers and grow envious of their raw talent and growing knowledge. This woman sounds a lot like someone I have had experience with, and that was her problem.

Take her out of your life and become the amazing rider she was threatened by. These new instructors will take you so much farther than you will have ever gotten with this woman.

Obviously this woman is REALLY immature. Strange that she's in her 40s and still hasn't learned the basics of being mature. Usually by that time the world has shown most people how to act--somehow she wasn't paying attention, or has some kind of developmental issue. She's acting how you'd think most people YOUR age would act, and you're acting how you'd think most people HER age would act! Just keep it up - you're doing great. Soon you'll be on to better things and this will be water under the bridge.

Disagree I think she is great right now for being so mature about things.

lol KI is da bomb!! Lol! Anywho, I looked at 2 trainers!!

The first one we looked at was BEAUTIFUL!!! Barn was spotless, horses were beautifully well taken care of, arena was awesome, and the trainer was awesome. Taking my first lesson there next Wed

The second barn ... eh. The stables were a bit messy, nobody in sight, trainer was nonexistant, students that were supposed to be there weren't ... just a big no.

But yay!! Found a new barn!! SO glad!! Next to ride? The Diamondback

Yay! You will find that riding and learning and showing can be FUN! Good for you for breaking loose! That mule woman is going to have to clean her own stalls now, and she has no one to blame but herself!

I'm glad you found such an awesome barn! Please tell us how your lesson goes :). I think you'll find that you'll improve greatly with a great instructor and a great environment.

Thanks again, everyone :) To those concerned about her making me feel riding isn't fun - No worries, I would still ride if she shot me in the foot every time I got on ;) It's my passion! Though I must say, it will be nice to have some fun at shows without her breathing down my neck...

Yes, I'll definatly let you guys know how the lesson goes :)

Wow!! Didn't realize this thread was up to 6 pages!
