    Default Horsemanship lessons

    Lesson 1
    - you are the boss of ur horse. Your horse is not the boss of you! This is very important when working with horses. Your horses need to respect u they are like kids u need to correct them and teach the how to do something right

    Unless you DON"T see your distance galloping down to bounce bank combination and your horse steps in and says "I got this one Mom!"

    Its really a give and take.

    Do you have a problem spelling, lazy or are you using a mobile? This isn't a grammar or spelling police issue. If you can't take the time to spell out what you want to say, who's going to take you serious?

    Even if her spelling and grammar were perfect, what would be the point?

    The content is worthless anyway.

    How to dodge a hoof to the head if you choose the wrong way to show the wrong horse "I'm the boss."

    Other than stating the obvious as blairasb snarkily pointed out, using chat/txt speak in a public forum such as this one makes your credibility go out the window. Spelling and grammar do count for something, especially if you're trying to come across as an adult. Otherwise, be prepared to be flayed, mocked, and/or ignored.

    Who is Beasmom? Beasmom is ThreeFigs. ThreeFigs has been riding for 47 years. Western (speed events and working cattle), H/J(back in the day when hunter courses were outside the arena), eventing and dressage.

    Child, I've forgotten more about horses than you will ever know. Or "noe". You're irritating, but entertaining.

    Because I'd wager that 99.5% of the people that use this board are far more well versed in horsemanship than you are. Therefore, your content, geared toward the most basic beginner rider i.e. the 5 year old at his/her first pony lesson is for all intents and purposes worthless.

    Lest anyone question the 0.5% that I left out, I'm counting the spammers. And the automated spambots.
