I am proof.

So I noticed that a lot of people on here have a hard time swallowing critique that they get. I just felt the urge to post this because I am thankful.

When I first came here I pretty much looked like this:

I have never had a trainer in jumping and had no idea what I was doing. Trust me at the time of this video I thought that I was doing just fine lol. Now that I look back I know I was doing horrible but anyway...

After posting on here and getting critique and advice I was able to improve my riding greatly. Despite not being able to afford a trainer I was able to go from looking like that to looking like this:

Thanks to the people on here and help from my riding buddy of course I have improved a lot.

Oh and some good news is that I am going back to start riding Junior again! We hope to do our first show back together on November 13th :]

Your horse is adorable. I love the little crow-hoppy things he does before jumps. :P

I'm so busy, I don't know if I've found a rope... or lost my horse...

Thanks :] Yeah he likes to chip into jumps a lot and we finally did figure out why that is. He is very very well trained as a jumper but due to past abuse he is almost 100% blind in his left eye, because of this he has an even harder time seeing the jump and can't really judge where it is most of the time. We are working on it :]
