I love my horse to no end. I love my boarding facility, it's the home of a good friend i consider family. But when it comes to making a decision for my horse (Omega) , i sometimes feel i have little say in it.
The equine dentist reccomended a different bit, so i finally purchased the one she said to try. I waited months to buy it. Because it became a monumental event. My friend told her friend about it, and her friend sent me a text saying i was ruining my horse and that a new bit wont fix my issues i have becuase i dont know anything and im not a good enough rider. Fine. Im green, i get that, i openly admit it! I need more lessons and time in the saddle. But who are they to say anything! I felt so betrayed. My friend then denied saying anything to her friend.....um....obviousley you DID, you were the only one that knew about it.
I was also lunging omega one day and my friend was telling me he was done. I thought that was my desicion? Just becuase he is a trained horse and he did a circle a couple times doesnt mean I was done.
So with that said.......
How do i do what i want with my horse without hurting the feelings of ones "trying to help"?
im so lost.
Im not an idiot, i know whats right and wrong, and i know the basics.
