I think it is really great that you and daughter have such an open relationship and she was able to share with you her feelings about her friends.. As many others have posted that friendships come and go at that age.. after all it is an age (teenage years) of experiementation where kids try to figure out who they are and how they fit in this world... As we all get older our interests change and sometimes our peer groups do as well.. I know when I was your daughters age I was had several very close friends.. but by the time we hit high school most of us went our separate ways because of our interests.. one that especially hurt me was a friend of mine who was actually a distanct cousin.. she started hanging out with the wrong crowd and got into drugs.. I didnt want to be a part of that but it hurt me that our friendship had changed..I had another friend who was into sports and althetics.. I wasnt very athethic so that relationship fizzled too.... just think dont we usually pick our life's mates based on common interests, values, beliefs etc??

I think the best thing you can do is to encourage your daughter to spend time with her friends from the horse stables.. encourage other activities that she enjoys to make new friends there.. unfortunately other than that there is not much more you can do.... just continue being open and there for your daughter in her times of need.. sounds like you are doing a great job already.. best wishes!!
