Small world. I don't live in Bristol VA, but it's only 30 minutes away!

You and Red look great together, and you look so happy! Good for you! It's nice to see someone having a great time and looking so good doing it!

I'm sorry that people were so unreasonable and unfair with you. I've never had the race card against me, but I have been the underdog and been made fun of. I'm not sure why. It is nice to beat the socks off of them! Jazz and I came to a show once and beat out many of the people that had been snotty to both of us for years! I had a great time and didn't think it was that big of deal until one lady actually refused to talk to me months afterwards! What the heck??

Glad that you are doing well, and just keep going. I know what it's like to feel like you aren't good enough. You are, and don't let anyone else try to convince you otherwise, for whatever reason! I grew up riding in a show barn with all kinds of snotty bimbos. Now we've all moved on to college, and they're sorority girls seeking out the M.R.S. degree (a wealthy husband) and I'm a scientist heading towards my doctorate. And, ironically, in a year I'm marrying a very successful businessman and most of them are adrift! Don't be afraid to be different, and don't worry about what others around you think! It's more fun to be outside of the box and do your own thing anyway, and they probably all wish they were you, bold enough to step up.

thank you for the kind words. yea, i never thought i would be picked out of a crowd for being a different color than the majority of virginia. my trainer never thought i would. nobody in my barn thinks of me any different than the "white riders" because of my skill and the way i interact with every horse i come across. in fact they consider me one of the best riders in that barn because of it. and ive only been riding 3 years! its a really great thing to be able to step forward, take a stand and say, "im not going to let you step on me because i am a different color than you, because showing this kind of rudeness toward me is only setting you back as unsportsman-like and disrespectful". i was really proud of myself for making my point and beating them in my classes. once again, thanks for the helpful words!
