This is the last straw...

The other day my mom went off on somebody about their rottweiler, about how they're great dogs but they need proper training because they're big and can be dangerous (the dog dragged their daughter down a hill, he's only a puppy- but a big, strong "puppy").

Today Tango had a hissy fit and off I came. Her reaction is to 1 ) give me the "can't you see I'm talking" speach and then 2 ) blame it on me.
Well I know it wasn't my fault. Why? Because the crappy saddle we're supposed to replace (but she keeps putting it off) BROKE, the stirrup flew off when I tried to regain my seat, and the sudden loss of support gave him the upper hand and off I came.

Well I scraped my arm up pretty badly, landed on my hip and am having a VERY hard time walking- so I didn't get back on, and now I've decided that I'm not going to get back on WITHOUT A TRAINER.
She's got her head set on her friend who IS a trainer (retired) but is unreliable and I find her methods questionable. She refuses to budge, and wants me to work through his issue myself as best I can- No. Tango is a big animal, when he wants to do something different, he'll do it and I'm not prepared to deal with that ALL BY MYSELF. And so, I've decided, that my dad and I are going to find a reliable, no-other-attachments trainer, somebody who will work with both of us and teach Mr. Tango some dang respect for the bit and his rider.

I got off topic.
So back on topic, how can my own mother knock somebody around about having a badly trained dog that could injure their kid, when her own kid has a badly trained horse that is MUCH larger than some dog, and refuse to budge on her opinion about trainers?
I don't like stubborn people. ):
