    Obviously, you need to learn how to deal with these situations. Everyone can learn more when riding, dosen't matter if your 2 or 100, or even an olympic champion. Everyone is entitled to their own decisions, wheather it is on taking opinions from other riders, or taking lessons from a professional. She obviously does not want your help, so leave her alone. If she was paying you for lessons, then stop giving her lessons and move on.

    If you continue posting in this manner: multiple posts, unreadable spelling/grammar and... how do I say it... less than positive forum posting manners, you're probably going to be "[edit] slammed in the face" by more than just a 12 year old...

    take some time, read some of the other threads to see how to communicate well in this forum. The COTH forums are a remarkable resource, but they don't tolerate bad posting etiquette well. Just a warning. ;-)

    You didn't listen to the girl. Just because she is 12 years old dosen't mean that she has to take your advise. Back off and move on. Not everyone is going to listen. She clearly showed that she did not want your opinion so why keep trying to force your opinions on her?
    To help your case, I would suggest posting from a computer so that you have 1 post and not multiple. Not to be rude, but when you speak as if you know something, it is spelt know not no. This current format suggests you are 12 years old. Again, I am only trying to help.

    I wonder why riding two handed around the end pole is "wrong" in your mind?
    I never touch my saddle horn when I'm gaming, unless my foot comes out of a stirrup and I have to rebalance myself and get my foot back in.

    My gelding doesn't neck rein, so if we tried running patterns one-handed, they'd be a lot sloppier than they usually are. Grabbing the saddle horn also pulls you OUT of the saddle, it doesn't help you stay in it.

    The older you get, the more you realize you really don't know that much yourself.

    Keep learning.

    Online, your spelling and grammar and content of your posts are all people have to judge you by. This was the online communication equivalent of wandering around in 2 sizes too small sweat pants with your hair in curlers, smoking cheap cigarettes, screaming at the dogs at the top of your lungs. I read this without any caffeine in my system and my brain just about exploded.

    "smoking cheap cigarettes".. would it be better if she smoked expensive ones? And cigarettes run $12 a pack where I am, so there is no such thing as cheap cigarettes, but I liked the imagery. There's a Raymond Chandler book somewhere there in your future.
