Red face Nicest Thing Anyone Has Said

What is the nicest thing anyone has said to you related to your horses, showing, or riding? Add a bit of a story if you'd like.

I will start with mine:

I was at a show my fourth year in 4-H. My first year, I had a babysitter horse, the second I had a bucky pony, third I had a crazy horse fresh from training and still very green, but my fourth I had Summer. She is the one I worked the hardest with for sure because we REALLY bonded and she was SO easy to work with. It was her first year ever to do anything like. Never been shown before anywhere. Of course I was nervous, and she was nervous. We entered our first class-Mare halter. We went in and she trotted beautifully, stood square for the judge, but when we went on the fence she was a tad bit squirmy. We waited for someone in the class, but they accidentally grabbed the wrong horse. Since our club is small enough they tabled our class and let the next go in. So we walked out, after that class, mine went in again. She was just perfect! We got first place and then placed right under the Reserve Grand Champion mare in the Grand and Reserve class. I was soo happy. Then when I was sitting at the trailer, my mom's boss [who has two daughters that show with me] came up to me and said, "I'm glad you finally got a horse that shows your true potential."

That's the nicest thing anyone has said to me. What about you guys?

Hmmm... Everyone always tells me or my mom how beautiful my mare is. My trainer thinks we should breed her instead of my other mare haha.

There is something about riding down the street on a prancing horse that makes you feel like something, even when you ain't a thing. ~ Will Rogers

Lynn Palm said I was a pretty rider n__n That was a pretty big compliment in my book. My instructor from waaay back when loved Cowboy, despite his attitude. And everyone has loved the sorrel colt we brought home, despite the fact he was a mess they can't stop saying how 'pretty' he is. It's like "His shoulder's ripped open and he's underweight and shaggy from winter"... But he'll be a smexy boy when he's in his summer prime.

At my last show, which was only my second show, I was jumping Love Story. I t was her first show, so I wasnt to sure how she'd behave. But that day she gave me four clear rounds and a fourth place :). My instructers told me I jumped her beautifully and that they couldnt hane been more proud of me. *blush*

Every girl wants their own LOVE STORY, I found mine... :)

I never really got a lot of compliments, since I always stayed a bit of a Greenie ;)

I guess saying that I've improved a lot already, in just 3 lessons, is my best!
It makes me want to be able to ride again even more! :-D

I don't know if this counts but it's kind of related to my horse that I used to own. I made a bronze sculpture of my horse for my sculpture class that everyone really liked. I got a lot of compliments on it but there's one that I will always remember. We had a final critique at the end of class, of all the work we did for the semester. One woman in the class is a professional potter. When it was my turn and the were critiquing my horse she that from looking at it she could tell how much I love horses and it was like the sculpture was a piece of my soul.

I've had compliments that I rode really well, or that the horse is looking really pretty but by far the biggest and most meaningful compliment I've had was when I had a complete stranger walk up to me when I was just grooming Ricky at a show and said 'You can tell that horse loves you a lot. Its just the way he looks at you and follows you.' She'd seen me lungeing him and she was just amazed at his behavior. That melted my heart into butter to hear someone say that.

"Well sat."

Hahaha, but no, my instructor at PC Camp said i was a really nice rider and had a very good position. ((: I was very chuffed. And i've been told that Dougal is very well put together and should make a cracking pony one day. Ah, big headedness. But everyone is allowed to be proud of themselves every once in a while, yes?
