As I see it:
If you're smart enough to skip class, you're smart enough to know how to do something you haven't been taught.

Again as others stated prior, you put this on yourself.

I am so sorry for your bad experience (ive been there) and I think everyone here has made a valid point. I had the most amazing animal science teacher, who was also my boss, cause I was a student worker on the college farm as well. She was great until I missed classes, showed up unprepared, or got lazy with my job, then it was my butt chewed, often in front of people. One thing I learned about her was that she wasnt trying to be rude to me, she didnt hate me like I suspected, she had higher expectations for me and constantly pushed me out of my comfort zone so that I could improve my skills. Try not to take it personal and use it as a learning tool. He may or may not have meant it personal and I also agree with the thinking out of the box comment. The teacher I mentioned above constantly put me in situations that I was convinced I would fail at, I didnt always succeed (most of the time I did fail) but I pushed my limits and learned alot about myself and I learned that failure is not a bad thing. Give the guy another chance, horse people and ranchers are their own breed and often come across wrong. I truly hope your next class goes much better :) Good luck to you and your sister <3

Thank you everyone for your honest opinions. Though I may not have agreed with some I did listen to them, and will keep them in mind for the future.
This thread was mainly to vent, and I have done that, and I have calmed down and I am not angry with my instructor anymore (though I still dont agree with what he did)

Whats done is done. I cant change what happened at that class, so I might as well accept what happened and let it all go, though still remember it for future experience.

Once again thank you all for being honest. Id rather agree/disagree with honest people than deal with people that will only tell me what I want to hear.

Never forgot the horse that taught you to be fearless (Braveheart RIP) the horse that taught you to stay strong no matter how bumpy the road is (Caesar) and the horse that always had to test gravity by throwing you in the air (Cali)

I may have tried it at a slower pace. Maybe the instructor wanted to see what you are capable of doing. Maybe talk to the instructor after class, calmly.
