我妹妹 is also correct. Using 的 for very close relationships sounds a bit strange, even if technically correct.

This is accurate. The Duo web notes teach this as well. EDIT: 我妹妹, is now accepted.

I have also heard a Chinese person simply say 我妹 instead of 我妹妹,I think they should both be accepted.

"妈妈很喜欢骑马" is accepted in a different problem. Why is “我的妹妹喜欢骑马” not acceptable here?
