WRONG! I about flipped my lid yesterday. I had a lady call me last week saying she wanted to lease my "adult rider only" mare... for her 10 year old daughter. I told her that was a bad idea, but couldn't be swayed so i invited her out for a test ride and evaluation of the daughters riding skills. long story short, the girl came out, was a good rider, but i said she would have to take a month of lessons before we would talk again about leasing a horse.
So they show up 30 minutes late (!!!) walk up to me said, "i bought a horse!" OH DEAR. mom has MINIMAL horse experience, the daughter is only 10, and now they OWN a horse! Now i have 3 more lessons to teach this girl everything i can think of. She is a smart girl, a quick learner, and i hope i will expand her horse handling skills appropriately.
People like this are gonna give me grey hairs too soon.
