When to a show out of town and it went really well. The day started of with trail. We screwed up on that one and then we did horsemanship I went from first to foruth because I touched the other rein becasue he jumped around
. Then I did pleasure we got first and the judge thought my ride was flawless. Following that we entered the pleasure stake and got second (not to shabby hey?!?!) and I recieved a trophy! We gey our names ingraved on it and I get to keep it until next July! Last class was reining ( I am working threw his rearing problems) We ran in then stopped I pushed him to hard and he stoped on his front end knocking my foot out of the stirrup then twisting it(if that makes any sense) Once I got my darn foot in the stirrup we continued the pattern quite well for not doing much reining for the last two months. We endend up with fifth.
I happend to be competing aganist a past coach. After my run that arragant man (I have other words in mind) came up and said "if you keep riding two handed with a curb you will never win (may I add that this was the first time I did this!) and in your spins your horse needs to be more soft" Yes maybe that is true but I don't show to win I show to get the expiernce. Anyways you may think this a young trainer but no he's a 70 yo man who isn't a spectacular rider and I could go on and on.....
I said "I mentionend quite clrearly that I was using this class as a schooling class to work threw some of our issues." he continues with this BS while I listen and reapeat " I was schooling him" and then walked away. Also to top that off he asked for his bit back which he gave
me a while back I told him I will give it back after I clean it up. I was this >.< close to giving him the bit and telling him to go shove it up his rear end
And this whole problem started when I beat him in a stake class two years ago! I thought he would be happy one of his students won but no he didnt speak a word to me a didnt answer my calls or give me dirty looks at shows for another two years.
Anywho thanks for reading! Milk and cookies for all!
