    Use it to your advantage. From your other post it shows that it made you reflect on yourself and find some things to work on. While it's not always fun to hear others critique us or say something not so flattering, it's always good to use it as fuel to fix or better ourselves.

    I've been riding since before I could walk, my mom (was a trainer & taught me a lot) is insanely critical, a 1/16th of an inch in the wrong and she's all over it. She still makes me slightly nervous when she watches me ride. She doesn't hold back and will nitpick any mistake she can find. When I was younger all it did was piss me off and cause us to fight, now I ask her to come watch me work youngsters every once in awhile and pick at me because I can use it to my benefit. Even though I may not like what she has to say sometimes, I'm better for hearing it.

    Just keep working hard and take in what is said if it's worth hearing and if not let it roll off. :)

    Oh, I was never "mad" at the BO's husband. I knew he wasn't trying to be hurtful in any way.

    Like I said, I'm just too sensitive.

    Thanks to all of you.

    It sounds like you're female, Sunny, bc you're overthinking this, and it sounds like you BO is male bc a lot men lack tact. ROFL
    Really, if you are concerned about your seat take a few lessons from somebody you trust. Otherwise, if you and your horse are happy with each other and you do NOT intend to show, where a judge WILL pick you apart, then just keep riding and don't worry about it.
    I am an experienced shaker. I just shook up my DD, who is in her first semester of law school exams. She called last week in almost tears to say that she blew her first test. (They only get one test/semester for their grades, you see.) I verbally shook her up, telling her you can't change the past, and you still have 3 exams to study for. She stopped crying, bit the bullet and enjoyed the next 2 exams. I also knew that there is only ONE way that she will fail~

    You're looking for the scene 5 minutes in where "Rimmer" is taking a test.
    I know your name isn't Rimmer, so you should be okay. =D

    Yeah I think you're over thinking it. I'd still take him up on the offer (after explaining you are a confident rider)
