My parents were very good actually! Of course they had some worries but I think they knew I was very passionate about it and allowed me to do what I thought was correct and learn from the experiences. My mom has gotten much better around them, although she is allergic. Sometimes she even cleans up a paddock when I’m riding! The most important thing I think is to help inform them of what you are doing so they can understand too.
My mom absolutely hates the barn the stables anything to really do with horses so what I did was I brought her to the barn to come and see my horse being a little bit of a brat and then once I was working with him and I got him respectful and up and going I brought her again to see the big improvement I think that’s when she really understood why I loved it so much because of the reward
