I called mom on the phone and let her know what's happening. Funny, her daughter didn't mention anything about being scared of the horse biting at flies. I told her we have several options 1) keep riding 1.5) go back on the lead line 2) do unmounted 3) I can teach her to drive the donkeys. She is going to chat with her and see what she would like to do.

Great. Let us know how it goes. It could be that even though she gets scared she bounces right back and still enjoys riding. We'll see I guess!

at the ranch if a kid is scared (a lot of the time they just aren't used to horses) we'll usually convince them to get on and then if the don't want to stay on, they don't and they can wait in their cabin or (as I prefer) hang out at the gate and pet the horses that come by, lots of ours will come to people at the gate for pets
