Dative Pronouns

I really don't see the differences between Ihrem and ihrer. Can someone explain this? Duolingo has not consistency between the words meaning "her, their, or you"

"Ihrem" is used because you are reffering to male/neuter noun and "Ihrer" because it's feminine. i.e.: sie fährt mit ihrem fahrrad. (mit is a dativ preposition and fahrrad is neuter)....sie ist bei ihrer Mutter zu Hause (bei is Dativ preposition and Mutter is Feminine).
