I never respect stables like that. Ever. My trainer rode the jr/AA highs, trainer stallions from Germany, and one day she was hacking a thoroughbred she was retraining and freakishly became a human lawn dart. TBI. She wasnt right for months, if not a year. she wont even get on my gelding when we're just standing around without her helmet. ONE MORE fall on her head, and she's a vegetable. One more.
I read the posts and then had to check out the main page. I think its great that they are raising money for St. Judes. From the looks of things, it appears that they might be sending some new patients their way at some point....
these people..... oh I can hardly think straight, I know it's stupid to get pissed on the internet but
But.. some folks have to learn the "hard way". Darwin et al.
Hopefully no child will incurr a TBI or die. If they do,it may be seen as "one of those things". If it does happen and a lawsuit results, then the stable will learn from the experience.
I understand your frustration, however we can't become much more of a nanny state than we already are, at this point in time, without having the state (and not the parents), responsible for raising children.
You did come off very confrontational and it definitely could have been approached better, but those girls sound like they are 12 years old anyways. I know it's frustrating, but you're not going to get through their apparently very thick skulls when their argument is "I have been riding there for months and haven't been hurt yet!". Yes, months honey, you must know everything now huh?
