I would love to be an author but I don't know everything there is to know about writing. Maybe you should try to think things through before you say something that could possibly offend someone.
thanks for the advice but I did think it through. No one ever pulled punches in me when I was a kid and I havent any long term scarring from it.

And maybe I do like impress upon youngens the importance of such things. And if you were to decide to become an author, wouldnt you learn everything from the basics to the hardest before you started writing or indeed before you decided that this is something you could do? Anyways, writing is less involved than handling a hot headed race horse.

If I did offend the original poster, that wasnt my intention but not everything in life comes wrapped up in pretty paper with a bow that makes us smile. Sometimes things come in a brown, boring paper bag that isnt nearly as endearing however, the same thing is inside

Oouch! It's fine that you wanna follow your dream but steeple chase is one of the horses most dangerous sport. Most jockeys and horses die in that sport. But, if you wanna do it, go right ahead.

you are right. While saying MOST horses is a little exaggerated the point is still the same :) many people and horses have died in accidents like falls over jumps etc unlike straight racing, you have to be not only a strong rider, but highly experienced at jumping fences of that height. It is too easy for a flying race horse to clip the jump and at that speed, its not pretty.


I have noticed no reply from the OP and I hope this isnt because he has become discouraged. Something can be learnt from what everyone has said in this thread. Sometimes we don't like what we hear but it doesnt help to sugar coat it.
