having a black horse also gets the judges eye on you and can be as much of an asset as a perfect headset

That the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard.

it's true, saddleseat is all about beauty and discipline showing off your horse and your horse showing off you. Black and grey are considered favorable

In all seriousness, OP, I think that if you guys can't get along... maybe ask her (or better yet, HELP her) find a different riding program? Or whatever it is you do... I mean, if you guys aren't getting along, then maybe she would be happier finding a place that is less driven to win.

Maybe she just wants to take her time, not everyone has a really strong winning drive. From what I can tell from your posts, you guys just really aren't compatible, I think she'd be happy with a group that is more laid back where she can mozey at her own pace :)

This is my opinion though, hard for me to give solid advice without talking to both parties.

Maybe she just doesn't have the "horsemanship" to deal with saddlebreds. Maybe QH's or Paint's would be better for her.

I get what your saying but if anything she wants to win more than any of us, she is convinced some classes are fixed when she doesn't take 1st, while the rest of us roll with it, we have even had our instructor who teaches 6 year olds try to help but still nothing
