    On the flip side, I've found in my learning-to-be-a-semi-decent-rider journey that yes, indeed, most of the mistakes in my horse's work were due how I was riding. Which is good! You can fix you; you...

    For the love of all that's holy, don't put anything in slow motion. I hate that, and immediately assume that the reason you've included it is it's the only way that your horse exhibits any suspension...

    No idea, but. Yikes.



    I'm kinda bummed her latest thread got poofed. Unlike most trainwrecks, it cut straight to the chase of drama. And that's what I need to survive my workday.
