I’ve upset my BF’s Mother

I’ve been going out with my boyfriend for seven months. But yesterday was the first time I had been invited to travel over the 30 odd miles to their small-holding.
His Mother had suggested that we might go out for a (horse) ride in the afternoon which was fine with me. So at the correct time +/- 5 minutes I drove up and parked in the yard. His Mother came out and the visit went fine for the first 30 seconds, right up to the time when I mentioned that my horsebox, complete with John Boy (my horse), were just a couple of minutes behind me.
It now seems that bringing my own horse was bad but getting somebody else to bring him over for me was “pretentious” and so doubly bad. Honestly it had never occurred to me that it would be a problem.
Any suggestions as to what I might do to get back into favour?

Goodness me... Do you need a hand holding, I mean everyone else's problems must sound so trivial compared to yours!!!!!!! winkwinkwink

Is the Tatler like Farmers Weekly for townies?

But I am so posh, "I've just spent 45 minutes attacking the baler with a hammer" posh.

OTOH I did hire a new groom this week!

Or it was your BF just stirring trouble between you two...

Ah, whole thread was just to drum up traffic to OP's blog I think.
Which (yeah, I clicked) is I think a bit out of order, commenting on groom candidates publicly.
Not going to be hard to identify in small circles.

Why ride her horse If you have your own if you can't drive your horse then it would of been illegal explain u didn't understand she wanted you to ride her horse and if
That doesn't work forget it my soon to be mother in law is an aboslute arsehole to. The point she won't be attending the wedding because I don't need negative people around me on the day making snide comments and my dp having to try and keep her out of mine and my family's hearing or she ll be hung upside down and left till she learns to behave. Sorry not very helpful I just don't like people who think they can get away with it just apologise if that isn't enough then nothing will be so you will have to learn to let it go over your head
