I'm busy with riding now! on top of going to Donny, I am up to my old riding school everyday exercising my friends pony whilst she is on holiday and one of the Riding school ponies who is on the brink of Laminitis.
But ... One of the girls (1year younger than me) I managed to get away from laughed in my face when i said hello to her at school. I was a little confused so I asked her on chat why she did such a thing.. and she went off on one on me I defended myself politely and tried to get her to reason but she got her friend (another girl a got away from) on me as well
So here I am with my mother on one end saying to just leave it. Whilst i'm being threatened on the other so being who I am I said my case and left it but the girls have left me with a big threat that they are going to come 'talk to me' at the stables.... greeeaaaaaaat
So I have told one of the instructors what has gone on and hopefully i'll be safe
Well .. at least i haven't taken their b**chy talk to heart
Will update later how it all went on
yeah, i've met far too many of them to let them bother me anymore. sounds like theyre prob jealous cos you've got 2 ponies to ride. just be really happy and smiley around them and if they say anything, just tell them you're sooo glad that you're not like them and dont respond to anything they say at all, just start whistling or singing and walk away because theyre never gonna reason with you, they just get pleasure from bringing you down, so dont show them that they're even remotely getting to you or they will just carry on doing it.
sorry to rant on but i've learnt to not even waste time thinking about them cos they're not worth it. just think of all the great things you are doing and learning and just big yourself up - cos you know you're better than them because you're not like them!
Just enjoy your time at the yard with the ponies and dont take any notice of those silly people. You'll find you'll bump into people like that alot where horses are concerned but you just have to learn to ignore them as best as possible, Their only trying to put you off so dont let them x Good luck x
A horse gallops with its lungs, perserveres with its heart, and wins with its character.
If I'd had a £1 for every time someone was bitchy to me or passed bitchy comments, I'd be a millionaire!
Most of it is pure jealousy, nothing less and nothing more.
I know its often hard to do, but ignore them completely, cut them dead.
Its not worth the energy or even the breath to try and make them see sense, they are not capable of it.
Enjoy your time with the ponies, and tke pleasure in the thought that you have your own and they don't.
