wow, so scary!

So my friend told me about her ride yesterday. She was riding in the rink and used running reins to correct something (I'm not sure what). She decided to take them out, and some girl offered to help her, assuring that she knew what she was doing. Wanting to be nice, my friend let her. Well, somehow, this little girl managed to detach the reins instead, and just got them out as a crack of thunder came. The horse reared up and started freaking out, and my friend had no reins whatsoever. She managed to calm him down with her seat, but This makes me ask the question: why did this girl claim to know what she was doing when she obviously didn't?

I see a lot of little girls running around thinking that they know everything.

Yeah, same here JDI. :roll: Ah...she probably got a bit over-confident & thought she knew what she was doing.

Success comes a [bit] at a time.

Exactly!!!! :roll:

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Maybe the little girl thought she knew what she was doing, in holland we call these girls penny girls I can't explain what these are because you don't have the penny (let me explain a bit) it's a magazine with fun strips about horses like : Someone saves a horse, someone manage to tame a wild stallion those 'penny' girls think they can do to and think they know everything 8)
