Horrible Experience For Children, 8/06/2014

My friend and I took our 7 year old girls here to have a fun, horseback riding experience. June took three of us out. My friend stayed behind at the farm with her little boy who was not old enough to... ride. June was extremely hostile and mean towards my friend's daughter, especially. Apparently, she expected a 7 year old to be able to control and manage the horse she was given to ride, in which case, that horse frequently stopped to graze on the grass, and the little girl was expected to keep the horse moving at all times. I am 42 and would not be able to do that. That is what we paid June for. My friend's daughter was berated several times over by June throughout the entire trail ride and was implicitly accused of being disobedient when the simple truth of it was that my friend's daughter was just not capable of controlling the horse. The child just wanted to have fun riding it. At least twice, June told both of the girls that they did *not* know what *they* were doing with the horses they were riding. No one ever claimed that they were even experienced horse riders, so that was just more abuse. And speaking of abuse, at one point, June threatened to slap my friend's daughter's hands with the horse reigns, because she had apparently jerked the reigns too hard or quick, which is exactly what June had been berating the girl for not doing the whole time. That child just could not win, and I could not believe it. It was like a bad dream and very upsetting for me.
