Woman refuses kids pony rides, defends horse safety 🐎

A woman is defending her decision to refuse pony rides to children, after a disagreement with her mother. The woman, who has owned her beloved horse for over twenty years, was concerned about the safety of the kids and explained this to her mother who did not take kindly to the restrictions. After a disagreement, the woman spoke to the owner of the property where the horse is kept and he agreed that it was a liability to allow unsupervised pony rides. Despite this, the woman's mother showed up with 12 kids and was refused entry.

The woman has since blocked her mother and much of her family, who have been critical of her decision. However, the woman has also reached out to the family of the birthday girl involved and set up a 'meet-the-horsey' event with appropriate safety measures, including pony rides for the children. She emphasizes that she does not hate children and simply wants to protect them from potential injury or harm. What do you think of her decision? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
