I don't want people to admire, not many people do admire Tess hahah. I just wanted to share them, the same way people put up photos of them and their horses.

The back that is hollow, like PintoTess's horse has in these pictures, shows that there is something missing, and I wanted to point it out, so that the OP understands that there is something needed to work on. It wasn't meant to say "oh my gosh, you are such a bad rider" but to say "hey, do you see this? This isn't correct"

I hope others see the pictures, and see that the back isn't rounded nor being lifted - which shows that the horse isn't being worked correctly. So that the light bulbs over their heads can turn on.

I am by no means, a perfect rider. I have faults and make errors, but I along with others, are here to learn, share, grow and become more "educated".

It is one thing to see a horse in a "frame" but another to see if the horse is being worked correctly.
Tess did not ask for critique nor did she at any point indicate that she wanted it. She even posted the photos in a section of the board where it explicitly says atthe top the critique is not welcome.

The Horse Pictures forum here at the Horse Forum is not for critique or breeding discussions. If the same member who has posted a picture in the Horse Pictures forum has brought up breeding her horse elsewhere, discuss it elsewhere. The Horse Pictures forum is a place where people who love their horses and simply want to share their pictures can. It is a non-judgmental environment. If you are looking to give or receive critique, please visit our Horse Critique forum.

There will be pictures of horses and riders in the Horse Pictures forum that aren't perfect, but it's no more appropriate to point out faults in threads in the Horse Pictures forum than it is to tell strangers on the street that they are too big or their clothes don't match. You are of course welcome to voice concerns about the safety of something depicted in a picture, but we ask that you do so in a friendly, constructive manner.
you do not have to say 'aww pretty ponies' if you don't feel like it, you are more then welcome to say NOTHING.

Truly hormonal women who have to much time on their hands because they are injured should stay away from message boards, but hey ho...

First I still think there is a huge difference between criticizing, in the "You are doing it all wrong" variety, and what I have seen here, which to me is you are a great looking pair, and maybe this would improve things. I don't, or lets say I didn't feel any negativity here until such a huge issue was made of it. This is a nice and pleasing pair to look at, and I truly believe that everyone is trying to make good even better.


but it's no more appropriate to point out faults in threads in the Horse Pictures forum than it is to tell strangers on the street that they are too big or their clothes don't match.

You know I was delighted the other day when someone stopped me and told me the zip on my pants was down, that I felt was someone trying to help.

If they had said, "Hey fattty your belly has made your zip spring open, lose some fat why don't you" I may have been mortified, there is a HUGE difference.

There's probably more, but sometimes when you are passionate on a subject it's best to stop, so..................................

GH the thing is if tess had wanted critique or advice she would have put it in that section of the board.

I'd be very offended if someone said to me: well you've lost loads of weight but you still have a way to go and you need to do X, Y and Z to get there.
1) i'm happy at my current weight
2) I didnt invite the comments

I personaly do not post photos to look for critique or advice on my riding. I post them so people can see my beautiful pony and his progress. Having your faults laid bare in public is embarrassing for some people. Hence the reason my lessons are private and no one is ever allowed to watch them, hence why you will never find a video of me riding on the internet. Actulay it is the reason I post so very few of the photos I have as I don't want critique. I know my faults, I am working on them and the only person entitled to comment on it is my instructor, my mother and people who I have explicitly asked to comment on my riding.

You guys look really great together :)

Folks, while I see both sides of the arguments, I think it's quite enough arguing at this point in this thread.

Tess, your horse is lovely looking, and I think you are a great pair. You said you want to work with the trainer, I'm sure you both will progress far with the good one. Good luck! :)
