I did this to my mom a while ago :3

I was riding Diamond, and of course, Mom was barking - "It's NOT that ponies fault! She's a good pony! Stop being so timid! She's not THAT hard to ride! Make her listen! Do this, do that, yayayayay..." Now listen, I have high respect for my parents. But by goly she friggin ticked me off. I got off Diamond, who was having an especially bad day, walked up to her, and gave her the reins. I told her to get on and show me. She did. After one round of Diamond trying to gallop to the barn, back to her buddies, and then spin back toward the barn, she gave me my pony back. Now I get compliments on how well I handle her XD

Haha I used to hear that a lot from people when I had my old gelding. I mentioned his trot was quite big and that it was hard for me to keep up at times but I gave it a blimmin' good go all the time. Most were skeptical about my balance and told me that I needed to improve myself. So I'd offer to let them ride him. Most took the opportunity, as if to show me up. I wasn't kidding. Evo's trot is so expansive he could make an intermediate rider look like a beginner. Most wobbled and fell on his neck or bounced around like a sack of potatoes in the beginning. I have to admit I always found it quite amusing and would usually get compliments there after

Sadly though that big trot also made it hard for me to sell him on. Everyone would contact me in regards to wanting an elevated show horse. He was that. In the end to stop time wasters/people who didn't want THAT much elevation, I'd send them to look at a video I had of him up so they got the idea... and he was sold onto a lovely rider who has just started showing him.
