And I saw absolutely no "snatching" going on. If you "snatch" that mare she will hit the barrel. You drive until your legs fall off because she will rate and turn the moment you sit for the turn. I don't like your criticism on this mare. You can't touch her. Sorry.
Nope, I saw what I saw. Not a lot of it, but at the point I mentioned (I forget now) there was definitely a big jerk going on.
"I don't like your criticism." LOL.
You also admit she's a pushbutton who doesn't require much riding at all....just like I predicted.
To you all who are talking about my mare swishing her tail. Just FYI we take her to the vet once a year and he does this thing ( I don't know what,so get off my back) to her tail and her back. Not sure if he pops her back or what (I use a chiro on her). And that ends the tail swishing. She has not had it yet this year. Also, whenI kick her she swishes her tail. I'll have to get a video, but I'll be riding doing nothing and kick her into a lope and she will swish her tail ONCE and lope. Its an attitude thing outside the arena, in the arena, I don't know. But, you can't tell me shes hurting. She is the most well-taken care of horse I know.
Bubba. Since you got butt hurt over us telling you you pissed off your grey mare and your hands were not correct in your video do not be rude. All your trying to do is get back at people. You won't win.
Also, you admit that she's popping the tail out of back pain and anger when you kick her....again, there's the o' theory of mine coming true in all its magnificent glory. Not finger-pointing about that, as lots of barrel horses are that way, but call it what it is.
Remember that "glass houses" comments from a while back? By jove, I think that applies here.
And.........she swished her tail once in the first video and yes more in the others, but she runs with her tail sticking out, shes always done that. You don't always know when she swishing her tail and when its just moving.
No, I can actually tell, surprisingly, the difference between a wind-blown tail and an actively moving one.
You also didn't answer my question about who trained your mare. Come back and talk to me once you start your own from scratch and bring it to the 1D level, OK? It's fine to be a jockey, but takes considerable less talent, skill, and knowledge than actual training. I'm far, far more impressed by the gals who train their own prospects (and maybe only ever make it to the 2D level) than those who plunk down a 5- or 6-figure price tag and sit up pretty in first place. Because I've seen numerous 10-year-olds with rich daddies do the latter, the spoiled brats.
