the rest of the story on my 12 yr old problem rider from monday. 2 days after her horrible ride, i called her mom to ask if she had any ideas what went wrong and if a different approach might be helpful. her mom told me "everything you said was reasonable and your tone was reasonable so i don't think you could change anything....i don't know what was wrong with her and we haven't had a chance to talk". the 2 problems i had with her is that she refused to use her voice to say "whoa" when she was trying to mount and the horse was stepping off, and she was trying to climb up the saddle like a mountain climber and pulling the saddle off, so i told her to grab mane, not the saddle and spring up into the saddle. she refused to do that, saying, "it won't work", "don't know how", etc. i demonstrated for her and told her step by step what to do but she refused for about 15 minutes, then finally did it. so today she was due for another lesson. her mom called and left a message saying, "she says she won't mount like you told her, she won't hold the mane so we won't be coming for any more riding lessons". they have 2 more lessons that they prepaid for (once they try a lesson they get a discount for paying for a 4 pack of lessons). i'm sad but relieved. i wish everyone liked me but when i clash with a rider it's pointless to try to put up with them. i know if that were my kid i'd make her work for the $70 worth of wasted lessons before i let her get on another horse! on the bright side, i had a nice ride on sing and had some nice lesson riders today who listen and do what i ask! :)
