    Instead of being somewhat harsh and driving someone who wants to learn AWAY, let's try to be more pleasant and keep them around. Encourage them to ask for advice WHENEVER they need it, it could save both horse and rider ALOT of trouble
    If you think this is the place she should be coming to for horse training advice...

    If you think the adults in her life shouldn't be playing a larger role in the road she's going down...

    If you think hand-holding and coddling is the way to empower her...

    ...then knock yourselves out.

    I must have missed where I said ANY of that.

    I believe what I said we should encourage them to ask for advice so they don't decide to just take it upon themselves to learn by trying without help.

    I agree she should contact a trainer, I agree her parents should know. We can't force her to get a trainer. We CAN offer her ALOT of help and save her and her horse alot of suffering by trial and error riding. We could be a little bit more friendly so we don't chase her away...

    Just remember that is will only be as good as the level of acceptance by the person we are giving the advice to.

    I learned a long time ago that the value of advice given free is based on the fact that it is free. Selling "free" often amounts to nothing.

    You actually believe that while we can't force her to get a trainer, the only viable solution other than not getting the horse at all, we can still offer a lot of help and save her and the horse a lot of suffering?

    My, but aren't you the optimist.

    Let's not even mention that someone of the OP's level of experience has no way of determing good advice from bad advice. I recently read a thread on this site where the good ole 'see-saw' of the reins was given as advice by MULTIPLE posters.

    The least of the OP's problems is my wrongly percieved unfriendliness.

    I say it depends. I got a greenie and trained him to jump when I didnt know how.
    But I had a very natural jumper under saddle. And he was very willing. The perfect partner. So it made it much easier.

    But that was a once in a lifetime horse :)
