Actually alot of the posts I read said exactly that.
Maybe YOU want to strive to do things correctly, many of us really dont care. Who the heck are you to suddenly decide I have to do something perfect just because I enter an event ? I bowl, shoot, sing karaoke and ride horses and dont put the time or effort into any of them to be perfect, nor do I "Strive" to. But I enjoy it none the less. The horse world seems to be full of experts that constantly wanna tell people what they "Shoud" do.
Some people like striving for perfection? I for one do not like doing things wrong. Want to ride english, I took english lessons just for fair! Play in pleasure at fair I made sure I sat just right and held my reins right. Just enough to be decent. Just wanting to have fun is great but some people want to do it right to and actually be competitive enough to get noticed. It pays off in the end to. Get a barrel horse placing in english equitation, winning hunter hack, and doing a western walk/trot class well enough to be called back in for round 2. It doesn't take much to strive, and it does have alot of benefits. Posted via Mobile Device
