How do i tell someone to back off a little at my livery yard?
my mum's best friend has a daughter who's 12, and she comes down to our livery yard pretty much every day (she lives next door). she was fine helping out to begin with but she is very eager to own her own horse, and recently she has started being very bossy and wanting to do every chore around the yard (i presume to prove to her mum that she can care for her own horse) i thought this wouldnt last for very long but now its getting to the point where i can't even spend some quality time with my own horse, without her coming in to do the girth, adjusting the stirrups or joining in grooming him. and its beginning to get me down. how can i ask her to back-off a bit without being giving the impression that im being horrible or unresionanable. (sorry for the paragraph:P)
