I ride a stallion and a girl I ride with doesn't know how to behave around stallions. How could I talk to her about it and not sound rude?

Maybe when she's doing something that's not good, you could just casually look over And be like "hey make sure you don't do that, he has a strange personality" or something like that to not make it sound rude.
Oh man yeah a mare+a stallion doesn't go to well. Plus if she has her won horse she doesn't know not to cut you off and how to act around a stallion.
Thanks! She's around 12 and she has a mare. She comes down towards the end of the arena with the mounting block when I am trying to mount and she cuts me off
I've had almost this same exact problem!(except the girl was doing it at a show and she was about 9-10 years old) I just walked up to her after she was yelling and walking all behind him and said "Hi sweetie, could you please not walk behind him or be so loud? He's not always a very kind horse and I don't want you or anyone else to get hurt." She smiled and said okay and then walked away and problem was solved. Not sure how old the girl is who rides with you, but I hope this helps! :)
