hey everyone
ive been riding for a while like a year and a half and i ride a horse called.....lets call him bobby cause i dont know if people i know from the stables are on here.

i ADORE bobby. people thik i only like him because hes cute, but thats nnot it.
people always say that hes really mean wwhich he can be but most of the time hes sweet as a cookie, he likes me aswell, he puts his head on my shoulder. he followes me. he snuggles me. hes head shy and he puts his head down so i can put my head on his head and hug it. i trust him with my life, but, the people there dont trust him. thye hold onto him tightly, he yell at him, i even saw, ill call her yana, bobby is clostrafobik in his stall right and the girl yana comes up and calls him over, AND THEN SHE CLAPS IN HIS FACE SPOOKING HIM! i was like what the hell! i told the instructor an all she said was oh ok and walked off.

these girls, they dont like me. they wont let me near him, and wont let him near me! he gets angry and gets in a bad mood. they say hes dangerous! but i have only ever had too insadents where he was danngerous. i cann walk into his padock ad hell follow me out! so why wont they let me nnear him?


i get so upset


i want to be able to go near him on my own but if i am aone with him someone always comes over and pushes me away from him. ive tried to make friends with them but they still dont like me :cry:

what do i do? i love bobby, but im nnot happy.:cry:

It's hard when dealing with horses that are owned by a stable, or boarding facility, because you really won't have a whole lot of control over the situation.

what do i do so i can be alone with him? : (

these girls sometimes rude to me. the just asume that i dont know anything about horses, which i do. i know a far bit about them. if i do something that the instructor tells me to do with the horse, and they see it theyll be like 'why did you do that!' 'youve done it wrong!' but i havnt, i always double check what i do to make sure everything is right.

Unfortunately that is what it is like with a lot of riding schools. I know the school that you are at, and I know a lot of the girls who have come out of there. Personally I would find somewhere else to ride.
If it is the owner that is not letting you near him, then I can 100% understand why she does not want you near him alone. You are only young, and he is a big horse. If he is known to be dangerous with other people, then it is not a risk any property owner should take to leave a young girl alone with a horse that may cause injury. If you get hurt, she could be liable. And I know for a fact, her insurance cover is not the greatest, so of course she is going to be overly protective.

Personally, I don't think a horse that is known to be dangerous around kids should be at a riding school. If you know what is best for you, you would move riding schools. If you like, PM me and I will give you contacts for a few of the schools that I would chose.

: ( we dont have alot of money for lessons though. and its not really the owner so much to say. its the girls, they think im always doing stuff wrong, and im nearly 16, im way older than alot of them and they just assume that i do everything wrong: (

i know he is dangerous, and i always keep an eye on him when ever i am near or if i am taking lessons. mum has tried to make me leave before because i was working no stop every day of the week and still having to pay for lessons and the owner keeps trying to get money out of me : (

i love this horse, and the owner knows this and letss me near him. its the girls who do this : (

you could list some schools i guess, ive tried being there friend, doing wwhat tey tel me to do, but they always end up angry at me about being near the horse, or talking about me annd they horse : (
