Unbelievable! This is so horrible!

heres a couple things that have been bugging me:
1) In early january my problem horse, Chance, reared nd flipped over with me on a trail ride. I was not pulling on his mouth(loose reins actually), his teath and saddle are fine, no spooking. He just didn't want to go up. He wasn't tired, we'd only been riding for 10 minutes. He just didn't wan't to go.
So, I got thrown off to the side while he fell onto his side. It was a horridly aweful image. Me laying there, watching him fall onto his side 4 feet away.
I saw him try to get up, I jumped up, grabbed him, lead him 30 feet, go on, and rode another half hour. I havent ridden him since, but he has been at the trainers.
He has been back at our house for a month, then the trainer is taking him back for 2 more weeks.

2) My dad and grandma think that just because I'm young, I can't possibly know anything they don't, even when my dad doesn't know how to hold a lunge line and my grandma doesn't even know what "withers" are. Chance won't gp slow on the line(hasn't been lunged for months), so everytime he won't slow he stops him. He has reared on it to. This happened tonight when his nosy-loud mouth-bosy friend insisted upon her giving cruddiy riiding lessons and then lunging MY horse. Chance will become my dads trail horse, as he's fine with ther horses.
I tell them how to lunge.Hello..... I had to lunge my hot pony mare everytime I rode(3-4 times a week) for 6 months at LEAST. I KNOW how to lunge a darn horse, with a line in the open, or in a round pen without a line!
Then they say " You don't know everything about horses. She knows more" But I don't know everything! I am not a know-it-all! I know that I have much more to learn! And I do know more than she does about technical riding. She has had horses for 30+ year, but the filly she bred because she wanted a "kwoot bayby" got caught in the barbed wire where she kept it(her parents) and DIED. What does that say?
My saying for that is "SOme people can own horses for a year he right way and know more than people that have owned them for twenty the worng way".

3) Everyone thinks I'm ignoring Chance, but really, I'm waiting for the trainer to show me how to work him properly(and my dad) before attempting to get back on.

4) Nobody (especially) my grandma thinks the flipping over was bad..... except my mom and trainers and other horse people.

And to top it off, ive been sick all the time! Schools are a good place to get sick a bunch. :(
Please do not lecture me. And my family is nice and *mostly* supportive. Just a rant and I need some comfort!

You strike me as a little arrogant and a know-it-all. Perhaps you should keep your mouth closed and your ears open. I know this is a rant and all you wanted was people to say how picked on you are but that really is not the case. Maybe next time you should just write your bratty rant in a Word document.

I don't think people are trying to insult you. They are just saying keep an open mind. If I have learned anything on this forum, it's that there are a lot of different ways to do things...and a lot of them are right, even if they are different than the way you do them.

Oh yes. I read this forum a bucnh. It really helps me learn more horse things and hear different opinions on here!
Sorry, ive been crying and have a mild fever, so I cant quite comprehend what you mean.....
BTW, this thread is not about Chance. Its baout how life is kicking me right now.
And in that one part, I do sound know-it-all-ish, but thats because i was typing fast and was/am upset. If i had added/taken away a few of those words, it would have sounded way different.

No one knows everything, and an example having horses near barb wire fencing. That is so dangerous. Live and learn.

Yep. It wasn't me that had it there. I wouldn't of,really. I went along with it, as I didnt have much experience, and,again, no power to say anything to make it change.

and i just have a comment about the filly getting stuck in barbed wire... that can happen to ANYONE, if you have a 100 acear ranch sometimes you just cant afford to use anything else but barbed wire, those thigns happen, they are tragic, but they happen, you cant callsomeone a bad horseperson because of an accident.
:)

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.

she didnt care about fixing it. If you saw it, it was a bad place for horses. plus, it was only 23 acres, and that pasture wasnt even 20. it was 15 and could be divided in half to keep it safe for a YEARLING
