OK I have a sort of unrelated question. I see this kind of nastiness on this forum a lot and I really don't get it. You want to slap her? Really? Watching the video many of the clips are stated they were taken a long time ago and it seems to document the progression of horse and rider ... why it was used for a sale video I dunno but that's beside the point.
The person in the video may or may not be a good rider and they may just be learning. Sometimes the level of judgment on here is ... impressive. It just reminds me how easy it is to hide behind a computer and pretend like you never had to start out and learn or how you never make or made mistakes.
It just makes me sad :( Especially in instances where the rider isn't actually asking for critique -- this poor girl isn't even here and people are bashing her and saying the horse deserves better. Bleh.
