I agree they are there to learn, that's why I enrolled her. We all know parents know ABSOLUTELY nothing. :). BUT, if a child is physically not strong enough to do something, wouldn't it be better to have an adult there? I don't see that as doing everything for her, I see that as being a responsible parent. Let me put it this way, J must brush the horse by herself. If it's not done properly she has to do it again. She picks his hooves, I supervise. I get the saddle down ( it's on the top rack) but she has to put the saddle pad on and carry the saddle over to the cross ties. I will put the saddle on, but she has to attach the girth on the off side, put the breastcollar on and tighten the girth to at least the first hole (hunt saddle) more if she can. She then has to bridle him by herself. Lets just say thankfully he's patient with her because it's not pretty, lol. Posted via Mobile Device
