Mother knows best?
Hi, My mare who I'm training for showmanship, is such a doll. She's amazing and gives everything 100%. Well, anyways, my mom help me work sometimes, but my dad is almost always there and helps me. Today, he was going to come, but had to mow the lawn. So, my mom came. I wasnt ASKING for her help, but she offered what she thought was right.
Okay, here's the thing about mom. She has had NO experience with horses AT ALL. She's only into it because I am. She's always lived in town and has had one dog. She didn't even like horses. My mom is the type of person who thinks she knows all. I've been researching horses and studying horses since second grade. But apperently, internet sites are giving her every little piece of info she knows. But she's throwing all these things at me.
Well today I wasn't praising her as much as usual, and giving her more verbal cues. Squaw was great, and paying attention. So I got upset and started arguing with my mom so mom made me put her away. I barely worked with her. Only like 10 minutes. I don't have all the time in the world to train her. It's such crap. I'm getting fed up with her being a know it all. Help please!
