Last week me and my girlfriend came to Silver Lining Stables to learn how to ride horses. In my Youth; I loved riding horses on my fathers farm. My father taught me how to tack the horses, ride them, and clean their stalls !! At Silver Lining Stables, the lady who gave us our lesson was very nice, courteous and understanding. My girlfriend was scared that she was going to fall of the horse, the instructer told her to woman up and she got over her fear. She was proud that she was able to ride the horse, however she was dissapointed that she didnt get to trot or canter (i told her that she needed more lessons to do that.) My girlfriend is always expecting too much out of things, when she learns any new skill she expects to be a master at it before she puts in the work. She was dissapointed when we went Skiing and she couldnt slope jump. She argued with me saying that she should be able to do because she had a lesson. Her mother is the same way. She thinks that just because she took one psychology class in the 80s means that she is as good as any therapist. She told me to stop going to my therapist and instead let her treat me. She majored in Communications, so what does she know. We tried to work out our issues in our relationship. This horse riding lesson was insightful as it let me know that me and her werent going to work out. Maybe after me shell finally get with the macho man she always wanted, like Greg.
