    Chill out, okay? This is the second time you've attacked MIEventer for posting advice that contradicts yours. Your opinion isn't the only one in the world... she's allowed to disagree. And she did explain WHY you shouldn't arch your back. Your post just said "arch your back" and gave no reasons. How is RamblingT going to learn from that? Please try to be a bit more respectful to the other posters.

    "This is the second time you've attacked MIEventer for posting advice that contradicts yours."
    Well first I'm only annoyed because of the way she says it not because she disagrees. I don't explian because I don't have time for everyone. I have to ride a grand prix horse my own horse and have to make sure everyone in the barn is safe and sound.
    If rambling wants to ask why they can.
    I don't think I'm the one whos being disrespectful.
    Clearly almost everyone on this forum idolizes her so maybe I should leave because I don't really have time for it anyway.
    I give people alot of second chances but I do have my limit.

    No one here idolizes anyone. We are all equal parts of this fabulous community. Everyone here has knowledge, experience and skills to share. No one is more than any other.

    Thanks Equeestriaan, I appreciate your words :)

    I can post my thoughts and my experiences and what I've learnt, just like anyone else can. This is a board of discussion - so that we can talk, learn and grow.

    Please do explain why the rider should arch her back?

    I agree with Equuestrain. Chill. MIEventer does not present her advice in a way that is offensive in my opinion. She is only saying what she thinks- take it or leave it. There is no mention of you in her post and she obviously isn't singling you out in any way. By putting up a fuss for no reason you are singling yourself out.

    MIEventer has -always- posted helpful, insightful, and kind critiques, with thorough explanations. Perhaps that's why we look to her so often, eh?

    I don't feel that she was disrespectful to you in any way, Trissacar. She didn't aim her comment in your direction, and you are not the only one who instructed the OP to arch her back.

    MIEventer has posted her opinion in a respectful way. Just because it isn't the same as yours or others, it doesn't mean it's a personal attack.

    You state in your last post that you do not have time to give a thorough critique to everyone, because you are busy. That's great that you have wonderful horses to ride, and that the majority of your time is spent there. MIEventer seems to enjoy providing thorough critiques to those who want them - don't jump down her throat for it.

    Please understand I do not want you not to post. I encourage differences in training and ideas. I just think you could disagree with me on a professional level. Like there are many different types of ways to say something and I felt yours was very oppositional to everything I have said.
    The judges like an arched back not hollow just enough to feel the back muscles. It also balances the horse out makes him sit on his haunches instead of on his forehand. It will also put the rider in a more secure position say if the horse decides to do something naughty. I know how it feels when I arch my back. I use my abdominal muscles more and my horse becomes so much more balanced beneath me.
    Also from Physical therapy I learned how much more secure and physically right it is. I have a funky disc and also mild scoliosis. Arching your back helps warm the muscles for jumping. And feels fantastic afterward from the endorphins.

    You should look at the other posts.

    Again my only problem is how she says it. *sigh*

    I still don't feel that MIEventer was disrespectful. Rather, I think she made a point -not- to be disrespectful.

    Thanks everyone for your support :) I highly appreciate it.

    Remember - it is easy to misinterpret words on a computer screen, when you get no tone of voice or facial expressions.

    Read the message behind the posts, not how you think it sounds.

    Like it or lump it, I guess. Easy to scroll past my posts.

    This is - afterall - JUST a forum.
