I hope the OP doesnt think anyone hates her on here! It is just we might have been around the block a few more times. :)

I was always taught nothing in life is worth having if its easily gained. 6 years ago i used to work with horses and got attacked by a stallion (who was eventually PTS for being dangerous). I suffered a broken leg in 7 places, a cracked coccyx and life long nerve damage. Consequently i have about 50 % use of my leg on a good day. I developed a very painful nerve disorder called CRSD (nowadays known as RSD). I was told i would never walk again. My parents wanted to sell my horse who was only a baby at the time.

Did i give up at 19 years old? Did I hell, not only did i learn to walk about i got back up on my horse and i am riding again! It is different and i have had to adjust, but of you truely want something in life you find a way. :)

Trust me, if you have worked to earn it, it is more satifying when you reach your goals then if it is just given to you. :)

I don't think anyone has, as you put it, dissed the teenager, rather, tried to understand and offer understanding but from your responce that may be at your time in life beyond you.

As for being know it alls. Simple math with clear that up for you and you may become enlightened.

16 years of living, The first 12 tied to an apron string = 4 years of life experience.

Know it all, 65 years of living. The first 12 years tied to an apron string = 53 years of life experience.
Now do you really think you can compete with that life experience which you attribute the term of, Know It All.

A very wise person once said. A wise person learns from someone elses mistakes, a fool learns from their own. Worth thinking about, don't you think.


Ride safely TB

As always I take ownership of my spelling mistakes

Good post Stan. Now, i am only 26. But i have a grvaely ill father, a highly disabled brother who is a delight and a wonderful mother. I have had to mature from a young age. But, mathematically speaking, i only have 10 years worth of life expereince. Sometimes i can be cocky, i can be arrogant. I do have to be slightly arrogant to be able to shake off some the ills of life sometimes.

Life is not always a kettle of fish and horse ownership is a wonderful luxuary, but not a good given right unfortunately.

OP you have much to learn, don't take this as an insult, but respect really should be given. Don't hate anyone in life, life is so short and so precious, you never know whats coming around the corner.

maybe people need to suport her rather then saying shes a spoilt brat, teens can have just as much experience if not more then some 30 yr old, some teens have it harder in just teen yrs then a 30 yr old as had there whole life

I dont agree with that, i understand children can and do go through a lot, but not to have been on this earth as long as a 30 year old means they simple cannot have more experience on how to deal with issues maturely, in fact, the OP has showing in her original post that she cannot deal with things maturely. I hope she reads some of the advise on here.

Tbforever, a word of advice from an old fart who has had the joy, sorrow, and arguments with teenagers of my own. Stop, and I mean stop trying to get the last word in because all you do is give the others more to respond to which will in the end be your downfall.

You get riled up because of lack of experience so you argue with emotion, and your adversary is coming from a maturity born of experience so in the long run will wear you down so you resort to emotional argument which causes you lose control of your tongue. The result of that is, well you make up your mind what the result is. Redirecting misguided folk is what I do for a living so we could keep this going for ever, but, I see some maturity creeping in, by your acknowledgement of you losing control of your tongue. Thats a forward movment.

So cheers and keep riding that horse.
