I really have to ask - why do I constantly see pics and vids of riders riding worse then morgan, and yet it's "rude" to belittle THEM? Why is it constantly acceptable to put this member down?

I understand it's frustrating when they don't listen to you, but maybe just stop posting on the topic? I'm all for harsh criticism, but it seems like a really idiotic double standard when nobody is allowed to spew anything but rainbows and butterflies to other members, and yet it's common practice to attack this member.

I'm not disagreeing with the comments, heck, I'm about as harsh as they come, I just dislike this constant double standard I'm seeing where it's ok to come down on some and not ok for others.

^^^ I was thinking the same thing, Mac :)

Just to clarify, I don't think I was rude, however, when I advised the OP to wait until she was fully healed.

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

Raimbows and butterflies are left for the HT forum....not here.

Believe me others have been told what is wrong and most of the time in fair detail. Almost all will at least make some effort to understand even if they don't agree.

In Morgan's case not only did we in the beginning very nicely explain what she is doing that needs improvement but also how to do it. A lot of people put in a lot of time but were treated to complete distain. After many many suggestions we were treated with considerable disrespect, then promises followed by lies, more promises then more lies.

And then she posts a video asking us to see how well she is doing !!!!!!!!!

Nothing has changed...not one bit !

Wow, I must have not seen those 'lies' then.

exactly!
She has been given VERY good advice but whenever she shows us new videos or pictures, she shows us that she hasn't listened to us and keeps giving us lies.
We're just all very concerned for her horse and herself!

Horse~ He seems to be rushing alot at the jumps...especially since its only a crossrail...i think that part of the the reason is that you are just turning and jumping...you need to give him some time to actually c what he is going over...i cant tell but he kind of looks like he is also pulling you a little.....

You~ I couldnt even see your postion over the jumps because of the view of the camera...but u need to just sit back, relax and work as a team with your horse...lessons always help...

Good Luck!!

The first, second, third, fourth, and likely fifth attempts to explain and help were kind, understanding, and just overflowing with rainbows and butterflies.

It was only after she promised change and gave us updates of Rowdy's improvements, then showed us conflicting videos and photos, that we changed our demeanor.

When she posts pictures in the "Pictures" forum, we avoid critique because that's not what that forum is for. This forum is for critique.
