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)
