What was that? Did I just beat you? Mhm, I think I did!


So our area is full of the stereotypical english riders. The ones who despise us western-ers, and those whoa re all total snobs. It is very rare to find a good one who isn't a close-minded idiot. One of the worst however, despises me in particular. Her name's Cami. We've never competed horse to horse because of the discipline thing (I ride western all through winter and don't usually compete English on the same circuit as she does.)

Alrighty. So I decided I would compete on that circuit this year and it begins in April, and the first show was today. She was there and she has a huge danish she calls Daylyn, while I have a short and stocky paint and a failed racehorse. Well, recently Cami has turned dangerous. See, Daylyn kicks. So whenever I am in the warm up arena I have to go fast enough to avoid her, otherwise she will run Daylyn right into me and naturally Daylyn will kick. Nailed Jester right in the shoulder once, and I was pissed.

So this time around I was doing a jumper class and so was she. She rode up next to me by the gate and was saying about how much her horse cost, and how many days of training she's put into him. Then she went on about how I shouldn't expect uch from Jester because he's western bred and western horses can't possibly be good jumpers. -eyeroll-

So long story short, I got a fast time and jumped clear. She actually got a refusal and four faults. I didn't come in first, but I got third and she didn't even place...obviously. She was furious, and I've never felt so self-satisfied in my life...even thoughI know its petty of me.

Anyway, that's my story....Just though I'd share it with you guys.

(Oh, and ignore typos. I'm exhausted and too lazy to correct them)

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

These kind of people drive me nutz.....I don't know why english and western can't have a mutual respect for our disciplines or allowance for movement between the two. I hate to hear Jester was kicked by her horse, she needs to get that under control. Good for you for bringing your A game and giving her something to think about :)

lol, I hate those kind of people! I ride/show both disciplines myself. One year I decided to teach a reining horse I rode for a friend to jump and put him in the show at our stable. Unfortunately I would have been competing on the same level as the president of our stables show association's son. They just bought a 25K warmblood that dumped him at every fence. She saw me training one day and then informed me that I wasn't going to be allowed to show Cloud because she thought he was a dangerous horse which is crazy! But she completely banned me. I think she couldn't bear her big expensive clod hopper with no brain to be beat out by a reining horse ha ha.

Show day came around and guess what....nobody else was in ANY of the classes her son was in. Can we say spoiled brat???? I didn't know it at the time but apparently this can make a stables show series lose their national accreditation....if I had known I would have reported them!

I hate it when crap riders with crap attitudes take a good horse and turn the horse into themselves. These riders don't need show trainers, they need therapists.

The riding skill level of any rider is inversly proportional to how much they talk about the price they overpaid for their horse. Glad you kicked her fancy butt!

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.
