What would you do if you saw the horse of your life?! What if he was everything you dreamed of?... black, perfect height, drop dead gorgeous, and sweet and as kind as an old soul? What if he had the most elegant and floating gaits? And he has scored in the high 70's his whole career?... You buy him and score as high as the moon. You win every show and you know no one has a chance against you, because you know your horse is a star, and when you ride him, you light the star up. What do you do? How should you feel, because your a Jr/Yr kicking professionals butts.?
Has anyone heard of the outstanding 5 y/o Romano. He is a black Hanoverian by Rotspon with the bloodlines of Donnerhall, Absatz, Pik Bube, and all his dams, ect. are State premiun mares. He scores 9's all gates? Supposingly outstanding?
I think we should feel embarassment for you. Obvious, you need the attention since you wrote the above about this wonder horse, who no one seems to know.
Just for argument's sake...if this IS actually nonfiction material.
To the OP.....
I know a fabulous young rider with a fabulous horse to boot. You know what makes her really special.....she doesn't have to go around telling everyone how great she is.....when she rides her horse, people see how great she is.
She is a super sweet kid and humble as well.
Those who talk a big game, usually have no game.....just FYI.
The Open Division Reserve Championship went to Christian Hartung riding Christiane Noelting’s 4 year old Hanoverian gelding, Romano, with 71.129 percent. Christian is working as Christiane’s assistant before returning to Germany for college. Romano, who has a “very level-headed attitude despite his young age,” according to Christine, sold after the show to a teenage girl who will continue showing him.
All I was saying is maybe dreams can come true if you believe in them and know you have a chance.
What do you do? How should you feel, because your a Jr/Yr kicking professionals butts.?
You should feel REALLY fortunate and take advice from the other posters and try also to learn to be humble. There is ALWAYS another horse as nice or nicer and ALWAYS another rider who has more skill or tact or is just having a better day. You might need the help of some pro whose butt you are "kicking" and even the best of them might be hard pressed to help someone who comes across as a snotty nosed brat.
Count your blessings and your sound horse while you can.
