~Anabel~ I wasn't insinuating things just happen as a fluke- I know it takes hard work and dedication. I was just saying I cant see myself reaching the upper levels anythime in the next decade or two so maybe after years of dedication and work I'll find the right horse and have assembled the right team and things will click or "fall into place".

equinesalways - youre exactly right about good instruction being hard to find! There are a few instructors around here but theire either a) not what they say they are (very few are as good as their as their advertisments declare) or b) very...eccentric. no, eccentric isnt the right word. extreme? yes. extreme. I've had the opportunity to ride with a local GP level coach once and to say you need a thick skin to take lessons from her would be putting it mildly. Shouting corrections at me is not the way to teach me. Finding someone who can work with you and find the best way for you to learn is definetly something to put highly on your priority list.

The first GP horse I ever saw was a Thoroughbred. The second was a Quarter Horse. If your horse can do it in the field, he can probably do something for you--- I don't mean you'll be competitive, but for me, I look to the farthest end... That we should all live long enough! If you aim for second level, you'll never get to third. There's nothing wrong with being an amateur-- doing it because you love it.
