Omg this is making me so mad. There is this girl at the barn and well she used to be the little girl that people just gave little pony rides or taught her a little here and there. Recently through the last year or so she has been able to ride a dead broke horse alot and now she has moved on to a green mule. This mule was the only other horse/donkey free at the barn. I used to ride this mule and let me tell you she is a pain in the butt. Although i rode her at a more green stage she is still somewhat green and this is a big accomplishment for the girl.

Well basically what i want to get to is that she has really gotten a big head every since this. :roll: Gosh its getting on my nerves. She is acting as if she knows everything at times and when you try and tell her she is doing something wrong she gets mad at you or says "i can't do anything because everything is wrong." I hate this because she gets an attitude about things.

Another thing is she starts acting as if she is better than others at the barn it makes me so mad. I know that one of my other friends is probably the best rider at the barn she is great and definitely has a great balance. Well she can do alot of things on her horse no problem. Well the other girl i am ranting about told me "you haven't galloped in the english saddle yet?" like i was supposed to already be doing that like a pro. I was just thinking i'm not like my other friend i don't have extremely great balance and well unlike some people i can admit it. See i changed saddles to western because in english i am basically teaching myself some of the things but am planning to get lessons soon. I just don't wanna rush into things and get hurt so i never go any faster than a canter because i know i will probably go flat on my face not knowing the positions or anything.

Well thats only one of the things that makes me mad. See it really irritates me because this girl wont get on Junior because he's too big and scary i guess :roll: and she wont ride in the english saddle when i offer. I just don't get why she has room to talk. I am seriously so close to exploding on her and it just grrr.....

Well sry about all this i just had to say it so bad. Am i wrong for being irritated about this?

Thanks by the way if you actually read through this whole thing lol. Kudos to you.

To be honest i think you have every right to be frustrated with this girl.. I can not stand people with big heads, or people that for some reason think they are better than others..

Just hang in there man, don't worry one of these days she is really gonna make a fool out of herself when she can't keep up with her mouth.

I love my horse. She is the wind beneath my wings.

We all have these people at our barns... best thing to do is just rant to us when you need to, but keep quiet to her. Don't be overly nice, but don't be mean either.. just ignore her.

oh, and laugh when she eats it ....

kidding... kinda..

Just ignore the little maggot.

If she wants to show off and act tough, let her. She'll fall harder when she does.
If you treat her with indifference, she might just shut up.
I like JDI's suggestion too.

Hehe, what I do with those kinda people is completely blow it off when you are with them, but when they mess up have some smart comment to give them..... start planning now ........ Like if she gallops in her english saddle and biffs it then be like...... isn't it hard to gallop when your but is on the ground not the saddle......prolly something more clever, but give me credit I came up w/ that in like 2 seconds :P hopefully you got my idea..... trust me it works

lol yea but she wont ride english its too scary :roll:

Thanks for everything though but i might be back again since i am probably going to the barn later today.

Haha maybe she listened to me and wont tie her horse up by the bit again. She did that and i told her not to and she got an attitude with me so i walked away garsh. She has done that two or three times now. One time she did it and walked off for a little while so my friend took her off the lead rope and was walking her around for the mean time and then the girl just came back and took the horse from her no thank yous or anything got on and rode off. So rude....

Is she much younger then you and your friends or the same age? She may be acting smart to hide her stupidity around you. You can take it as a compliment that she admires you enough to not want to seem green, or you can take her under your wing and try to help her become a better person and rider welcoming her into your group of friends. Sorry, but I feel its the ones who inside feel inferior that act superior on the outside. If you feel there is no hope for her, then of course ignore her as best you can. Horses are great equalizers for humans and if she is as green as you say she will be brought down a peg by the horse. I just hope she doesn't get hurt to badly when there are more experienced riders there to help her along.

lol yea well she is a friend of mine actually and she is younger than me actually. She is in 6th grade i think and i am in 10th grade. I met her through one of my other friends at the barn and she used to be the little nice sweet person that listened to whatever we said now she is starting to irritate me because she is getting a big head. Maybe its just the whole new thing about her moving up or something i'm not even sure. All i know is that she needs to shut her mouth sometimes.
