Casting aspersions now, are we?
I only mentioned it, because 'red' said they had 17 years experience.. like.. so? Lol.
Im just sayin' if you're going to belittle someone makesure they don't have years more experience than you do is all..
I do absolutely respect everyone-- I expect it in return-- my momma always told me 'trreat others the way you want to be treated' I stood up for the OP after people were saying it was a horrible thing to lope the pattern-- she said there is now dirt around the barrels and only lopes the patern and has been doin it for 7 years..
If you're going to be rude with me-- I can be rude too.
Seriously if your horse is too dainty for loping on grass, you might should find a new hobby-- horses are unpredictable -- my horse crushed my leg in correct footing.. I've never had a horse so unbalanced they slipped on gras, and I stated MY opinion..
I do not think im better than anyone here-- I come here to learn, not argue with people who think theyre better than me-- I have news for ya.. you aint.
