          Ofcourse we do
          Every time you ride, your are either teaching or un-teaching your horse.

            LOL no! Why would anyone want her to drug her horse? Sorry, that is the least of her worries I bet. She is married to Sjef! __I'd__ take drugs if he was my hubby! Her horse? Nah, no drugs needed.

                Dammit, I knew it.

                In the end, it all comes down to RIDING. Freaking TALENT. Sheesh.

                I mean really, if THAT'S what it's all about, how are we sucky poor amateurs ever going to get there?

                    Sjief - did anybody else notice that he appeared to be criticising Anky after her ride (the one where he showed up at) and how disappointed/hurt she looked. She didn't say anything, though.

                              I think Sjeff is always very critical after her rides. He isn't satisfied with Anky's performance most of the time, in the sense that even if she wins by a large margin, he has many things to say that he did not feel were sufficient and he says it very loudly and publicly. If she gets a second place or less, he is much more vocal in his criticism of her. And it is all very public.

                              There is:
                              1. A long tradition of harsh coaching in ALL sports
                              2. A long tradition of especially harsh coaching in riding in general
                              3. The pressure to win and to excel at the top level, which requires a very peculiar mindset of endless dissatisfaction with one's performance

                              Coaching a top rider like that isn't like coaching a lower level rider. Most lower level riders would never, could never, withstand the pressure and constant criticism. If a lower level rider was coached that way he'd most likely hop off his horse and indignantly go home.

                              I think there is a long tradition in dressage of coaches and trainers being very, very demanding and harsh, and pushing the rider very hard, but it's not just dressage, it's also in hunters - chucky waters used to make people get off their horse, get down on the ground and eat dirt if they messed up a jump. And of course people did it - most did, in fact. Which shows you there is something going on between coach and rider that isn't always that easy to explain.

                              Too there is what my SO calls 'The Dutch Bluntness'. They just tend to choose words a little differently, he says.

                              Dressage coaching in particular is traditionally very, very demanding and very hard on people. It is very common for coaches to use hyperbole or exaggerate their criticism, 'HE'S NOT TURNING' for the horse that is reacting incompletely or not prompty enough to the aids, etc. The horse may actually be turning, just not as desired. What they say is intended to push the rider to getting a really perfect response, not just an average or partial one.

                              People also tend to behave very much like their parents or anyone they got a lot of coaching from. I'm now old enough to have seen people teach and also have seen their parents or their mentors teach. There are a lot of the same patterns repeated over generations - an angry dismissive approach to questions, hypercritical even after a win, even ridicule, when you don't understand something or can't do it - that doesn't always work well all the time, even to push a rider to a better performance, it can often backfire - with all types of students, not just the more independent ones further along. People behave like the people they spent a lot of time with - sometimes they know it's a problem and try to control it, but if they're tired or busy it will come out.

                                Poor her. I can't imagine being subjected to all of this BS. Some people are just mean and nasty. And then there are fans who mean well but aren't much of a help either.

                                  I expect Anky has a better sense of humour than you do, Kareen.
