    I think I could too but unfortunately I tend to get defensive if my riding is critiqued by someone I haven't paid to do it and who I can't see with my own eyes has the qualifications. I won't have a coach who doesn't ride for that very reason, I have to be able to SEE that they know better than I do. So because I don't want to be rude, I ask that I not be critiqued, just my horse, especially since I can see most of my own flaws. It's the horse that I don't have the best eye for.

    ^That is all fair and makes sense, but sometimes horsie faults are a direct result of what their rider is doing. Just food for thought~

    Oh, I have no doubt that Magic's faults are my doing. Especially her tendency to duck behind the bit. Any flaws in this horse's training are my own. Other than a handful of rides I'm the only person who's been on her back, and I'm definitely the only person who's had anything to do with her training. Unless you count the one ride where a friend of mine got on and decided to work on her "frame", this friend's horses all work in a false headset but I am taking responsibility for Magic's because a) I asked my friend to get on and help me train her, and b) one ride shouldn't have that big of an impact, it's what I do with what was done on that one ride that has the impact.
