    The girl is a modern day Mozart on horseback. Watch and learn.

    They were champion/reserve multiple times on their mediums this summer, I think they are just fine.

    Indeed. Like this rider. But notice that the horse's head is up a bit, so this person must have been doing something horribly wrong.

    And here's another example. Maybe this horse would have had a rounder topline if only he'd had a better rider.

    I'll tell you what, the first time he ever spoke to me, I almost fell off my horse in shock. And all he said was, "Good morning."

    At last, a bit of horsemanship!!!! even if under unfortunate circumstances!
    For a girl that seems to be handed a lot of her rides because of money, at least she's a good horsewoman in the end. No whining and pouting after a fall, unlike so many of the a circuit juniors today. And even when reading her tumblr tonight and see how much responsibility she takes for the situation saying how good her horse was and that she was off. Brings a smile to my face when stuff like that happens and riders show a bit of humility.

    Everything is not always what it "seems" Alex has not been handed anything because of her money. She works harder than than most and is dedicated to this sport and getting better.

    No one said she wasn't, Alter_nativ3... calm down. Alex does get to ride some VERY nice horses that most of us would only dream of sitting on. But I know her, know how lovely she is, and how hard she works.
