Do these parents have clue how hurt their kid could get from having pwetty poneh in the yard with kid who knows nothing? Wow. Just Wow.

It also amazes me that they trust someone to sell them a horse, but noone to teach them or kid anything? People are wonderful, aren't they?

A horse that is so sore it will not trot is pretty sore. It may be time for a vet. If they have one they think they can "trust". :-/

I would never allow a 13 yr old inexperienced horse person to teach a younger inexperienced horse person about horses, riding, horsemanship or care of the horse. At 13 yrs old, it's very difficult to teach anything and a young teen without the relevant experience trying to teach is just asking for trouble.

The parents need to invest in a qualified instructor for BOTH girls before someone gets hurt. The parents need to invest in vet visits for the horse with thrush. The parents need to take a greater level of responsibility in this situation instead of palming it off to a 13 yr old child.

Horses are potentially very dangerous and for kids without experience, if there's no experienced adult around, it can be a recipe for disaster.

I seriously hope these parents step up.

So you continue to contradict yourself. You say you know what you're doing yet in your signature you're ready to learn all about horses. So which is it as I'm seriously confused...and I hate to say this, but nobody ever knows enough at 13 yrs old to be teaching anyone else. I've been around horses for more than 40 yrs and I wouldn't be confident in teaching others. Why? Because I'm not qualified. Please get yourself and your cousin to a decent instructor before something terrible happens to one of you or one of your horses. And please no need to poke your tongue out either.

I guess I'm just old fashioned in that I think people (Especially chitlens!) should learn to ride from a trainer.
But, hey, there's more than one way to skin a cat. Just be careful.

You are a kid. That's ridden for how long? Last time I came on this site, boasting how good I was, after riding for 10 years, I got shot down, quickly.

Repeat after me, I barely know anything about horses. Repeat it again and again. Only riding for, what I think you said, 3 years, you haven't scratched the surface of horse knowledge. Horses are a vast topic, and you will never know everything. I almost think that you think that you know all there is to know. I used to be that way, so save yourself the disappointment I went through when I put a video up of my riding, and having people say "you're an average rider" or "go back to beginnger lessons." That was after I broke out a 3 year old, and a very green horse 3 years before.

If I was in your position, I wouldn't even think to try to teach her on a horse that also needs to learn. That is an accident waiting to happen. Get an experienced rider to get out on that horse first, and work out the kinks, and then teach the girl. (Preferably after the thrush is taken care of. Thrush buster works great). What if that horse does someting that you or her don't know how to handle? Rearing, bucking, bolting, backing up excessively, etc? She needs to ride a solidly trained horse IMO. One that she can get a good foundation on, and work on her balance/aids/etc. An unexperienced horse is not a horse to learn that on. Trust me. When you have to focus what your body is doing and what the horses body is doing, it's hard. I would rather have it where my body can hold it's own, and then deal with the horse.

Good luck.

The horses will enjoy humbling you, I can already tell...

For everything we think we know, horses show us otherwise.

Not before
