Wow... I read the other thread and read this and all I can do is shake my head. You are a kid, plain and simple. A good chunck of the members on here are old enough to be your mother, and some even old enough to be your grand mother. So yea, you get called kid. Heck I get called a kid and I am 28. And sweetheart if you want to get into a battle of who has had the worse life. I bet a good chunck of us could make your head spin because things have happened to us that NO ONE would ever think could happen to anyone. But this is not a battle of who has had the hardest life.

This boils down to, you came here with a high and mighty attitude. You came with a "I know better then any of you!" attitude. You do know that many of the members here have ridden at national and international levels right?

Also saying "screw english" then going on to say you want to ride cross country. Well how about this. You come ride this sweet little fire cracker of a mare I have been riding. You can take her out on an entry level course. Mind you I could send you out on a prelim course as I am sure you wouldn't make it past the start box. The second you grab her face like you do in your videos, she will go up and over backwards on you. If she didn't.. well you would only have to kick her once and you will be taking a ride on "Air Amateur". I have watched videos of you ride. You have a lot to learn.

So why not get an attitude adjustment, then come back and try again.

Well, it would seem that all you managed to do here was to cement the opinions of you that were formed in the other thread. There is a saying, "It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak out and remove all doubt" - the same would seem to apply to being though of as an arrogant, immature person.

You call that an apology? Sorry not excepted.....

Your going to have to put a little more effort and a little less YOU in that apology. And make an effort at making it meaning full.......because I can still see you haven't gotten off your high horse yet.

You have dug your self a pretty **** deep hole....gonna take some effort to get out.

Conformation is how far the horse CAN go,
Mind is how far the horse WILL go,
Training is how far it DOES go.

Yeah I'm not accepting that either. How about "I'm sorry I was wrong, I realize I don't know everything, you guys have tried to help and I didn't listen, I won't do it again?"

Ever think of that?

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I'm with the others. Apology is not accepted because there are too many excuses in there. As someone else has already stated: Actions speak much louder than words.

I bet I had accomplished more than you at age 15, yet I even knew then that I didn't know anything.

And at the age of 26, I'm still learning from all the tremendous folks here on this forum. Heck, I still feel like I'm a kid (I couldn't actually be a grown-up already, right????? With a doctorate degree, joining a practice, getting married, buying my own horse trailer, taking care of my horses on my own, etc). Nah. Still a kid.

Which means you really are still just a kid.

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.

At 15 I qualified for the young riders team in 3 day. I still went out and listened to trainers and coaches and clung to every word. By 15 I was about to write my B level pony club and was coaching. Yet STILL wanted to learn more and would seek out others opinions and ask them what they thought and openly welcomed critiques. Just because I was 15 and doing well riding level and theory wise does not mean I was ready to be coaching and pimping out advice and tell people how it was.

Also at 15 I had spent some time in foster care homes as well. So I didn't have the best home life either. And I did not use that as an excuse for my actions ;) I did some stupid things and destroyed a lot of friendships because I had an stuck up attitude. I got put in my place really quickly. And was so happy when I was because it opened my mind to the way I explained earlier.

So why not try a "Im sorry, I was rude and a bit childish"

When you get to my age you'd give your teeth (whats left of them) to be called a kid again so stop complaining and make the most of your youth while you have it.
I was so young when I sat on a pony for the first time that I can't even remember it. I was winning junior jumping classes when I was 8 years old and by the time I was 15 I'd achieved quite a lot but I never felt that I had at the time because .........................
I KNEW I didnt know as much as people who were older than me and that's why I kept on learning and improving and I'm still learning now.
