I hope this sheds more light on the matter.
What a great weather we had today!!!

And given the circumstance I think that it should be over looked as it is a special situation....and instead of critisising the mother and the child, maybe try cheering the child on, giving her all of the encouragement and confidence that you can!
Unless this Child is threatening your little Sally's chance to win a saddle or take home a pay check I wouldnt worry about it!
There has got to be more that you can do with your time then worry about whether a Mentally Handicapped Child is following the RULES.
