Stop and think about it. If your horse refused because she was "scared" of the fence - then that was your fault for not preparing her enough.

If you came to the fence in a solid CC form, I don't know - I'd have to see the pics or vids.

If your coach blames your horse - then I'd question my coach.

I cliniqued under Ian Millar eons ago through Pony Club - and he said something that will always stick with me till the day I die.

"I good rider conforms to their horse and a poor rider makes their horse conform to them. A good rider blames themselves for erros, and a poor rider blames their horse"

Congrats on your first! We all take away something new to work on after our shows. I guess that is what makes them so addicting. You fix one thing then come home with another to work on. Nice job!

I couldn't see the dressage test what-so-ever and the stadium was alright.

Your mom's texas accent is strong. Least you had lovely texas weather for your HT.

She says Y'all - she sounds Texan. Must be different parts of Michigan with that strong accent. I am in SW Michigan and I havent heard that strong of an accent.

I could see you and your horse moving around, but very hard to see due to the distance.

How would you know what a texan sounds like anyway?

Ah, Arizona - I searched Area 5 for Eventing and that's right, Arizona. My mistake. At times it sounds like a Texas accent.

I play Xbox live nightly and I have friends who I talk to everynight who are from texas. They say Y'all and Yes Mam with that twang that I thougth I heard in your mom's voice.

I also have a dear friend who is a Texan who rides, trains and competes at a Reining Fascillity in Texas who calls me every Sunday. She says that "Yes Mam' and Y'all all the time, like your mom does.

It doesn't really matter anyways - I just thought it was a texas accent. My mistake
