Ugh! I'm having the hardest time keeping my mouth shut. When Maddie is riding I am constantly correcting her riding. Last night I swear I told her what to do with her reins a million times. They were to short, to long, uneven...ect. She wasn't using her legs to move him or slow him down. I sounded like a crazy person. But I know she can ride. She's very good at it. She just needs some guidance.
For all those parents who have riding experience, how do you watch your children ride without controlling the way they ride? I find if I don't give her direction she complains the entire time that he won't listen to her. So how do I just zip it and let her figure it out. I hate sounding like crazy show mom. I swore I'd never be the mom on the side lines coaching my kids, but I am! Help! I don't want to take the fun out of her riding, but I want her to ride right when she is practicing.
