So next time, DON'T RIDE!

My boss hired pony rides for our work Xmas party, weight limit was 100lbs so everyone was giggling that *I* could go for a pony ride with all the kids. It would have been a leadline slow-a$$ walk ride... um yeah, no thanks. My kid however, couldn't have pried her out of the saddle with a crowbar. The owner told me what a good lil rider she was (we're talking leadline walking, no reins here..) and I laughed, said she should be with her own horses at home to ride!

I completely understand why she lead you, and that that was the smart thing to do if she didn't know you. BUT, personally I would have just hopped off or said "No thanks! My _____ is sore. Thanks anyway though." (Or whatever) I refuse to be lead around like a child... However if it would really hurt someone's feeling I would have just made my point known and tolerated it, as annoying as it might be. I highly doubt that I personally would ever have a problem with that, though. I am known by everyone as "The horse girl", and ride a horse that is challenging at times, to say the least! My pride would take a big hit if it did... but ya gotta do what ya gotta do...

Being around horses since I was born and constantly being thrown on greenies since I was ohh...13? 14? And dealing with my own greenie that has anxiety issues, I would LOVE to go on a nice, quiet trail ride. Even if it meant being lead. My gelding is a space cadet, my mare isn't sound for trail rides. I haven't been on a nice, relaxing trail ride in probably two years or so. Ahhh that would be nice.

I had a birthday party when I was 8, had my trainer bring the pony that I rode out for us to ride at my house. I obviously could ride her by myself with no problem, but they didnt let me. My friend was PO'd that she couldnt ride alone, which she loves horses, but never rode and she thought she could handle it just because she read up on it. We didnt let anyone ride by themselves, why? Because then everyone would want to, and it would be bad. Even if they did ride. I understood that, even at 8.

I had a nice response to this about a spoiled kid showing respect to their elders, but feel it falls on deaf ears, or in this place would be on blind eyes. I'm sure you are a good kid in other aspects of your life.

I'll simply say "I hope it was a nice ride" regardless of being led.

i think sgs has been stated enough that shes completely understanding of the situation and was just expressing her emotion over it. it sounds like she went for the ride, didnt squabble to bad, and got on and off without a fight. a little understanding of how it feels to be a 14 yr old would go a long way here......

I completely agree with countrylove. My girls have been riding sine they were toddlers, and have their own horses. If one of them whined about being led, even if it was on the internet and I found out later, not only would they have not been allowed to ride at the party, they would have lost horse privileges at home for a while too. Riding is always a privilege, not a right. Just because you ride, or have a horse, does not make you entitled to anything, especially when it is someone else's horse you are talking about.
