I had another lesson today, and was practising for a low level dressage test. I did a circle and she said 'perfect', then I immediately did not ride into the next corner, she asked why and I said I was shocked at her telling me I was perfect, she replied 'the circle was perfect, you were not'.

LMAO! Why not tell me what you really think? :) I love it!

LOL, funny enough, I really learned to feel the horse loping bareback down the ditch beside the road in the middle of the night. I was either fortunate or ignorant enough to have the level of faith in my horse that I knew he wouldn't spook.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Smrobs, on a young and unpredictable horse (such as mine) it is helpful to lunge, with some I completely trust so I don't have to worry about him at all, and can just focus on me. On a well known, well trained and trusted horse you would not have to worry about this so much. I think that maybe you don't get the lunging thing because your seat, hands and everything else are where they should be, and you train your horses well. But for those of us who are still learning, it is helpful to have an instructor take care of the horse so we can focus on ourselves.

Oh, trust me, it wasn't because he was so great a horse or I was that great a rider, I was just young and stupid and managed to somehow not kill myself LOL.

To which I yelled back - "I AM A GIRL!!"

Eventing, the sport where you strap your medical information to your arm.

Been there and done that myself! Many many times! :)
Thankfully I had a great mare as a teenager who cared more about me than I did. :)

Love that, she sounds like my instructor, who recently told me that I need to seperate my boobs from my belly button. I am not thrilled at hearing this, as I don't have the biggest boobs but I get what she is saying. And I like that she will say things without worrying about my feelings. While she is my friend, I don't pay her to be my friend.

My trainer's favorite phrase is telling someone to "grow a pair."

"And somewhere in the northwoods darkness a creature walks upright. And the best advice you may ever get is: Don't go out at night..."

My trainer's not quite that forward, but she's definitely ready to tell me if I do something wrong. My parents get a little uncomfortable with her forwardness at times, but as a rider I understand that it will really help me out in the long run, and I love her for it :)
