    Don't do jumping, it is too dangerous.
    Why are you riding without saddle? Did somebody take your saddle away?? (...while I'm enjoying a bareback ride)
    Wow, he is not that smart as you're saying - look, he just spooked from that silly noise! (a loud bang right behind his back, from a car he hadn't noticed)
    Good horsey, good boy! (while Snickers is trying to push her around in hope for treats, although I had instructed her that this behavior cannot be accepted)
    Horses are just a hobby. You should stick to something more serious, you are an adult after all!

    Meh. How I deal with it? Just smile and nod, smile and nod... Some things never change, and one of these things is a mother that is always right. But she is still a mother.
    Haha, my mom is the same way. Sound like she is just worried that you will get hurt. I personally agree with your mom on the bareback thing though ;p

    Well, she was not that concerned about me riding bareback - more about that my saddle might have been confiscated by some reason, somebody... But generally, yes, she is afraid I might get hurt. She's been like this since I was born and I guess some moms just are this way. A bit like overly attached girlfriend, lol.
