Bad Riders




...

Have you ever seen a rider so bad that you wanted to look away to avoid catching their suck?



Now, we've all been a bad rider – and*some of us still are! ("us" being horse people collectively) And it's not that you, like, don't talk to someone who's a poor rider; you just... can't help but notice...




I mean... look at that. Ew!



But what really makes up for all of their riding faults is if they have a good attitude and try hard and are there to learn, rather than showcase their ability and take some minor tips.


You know what's worse? A rider who's okay, but acts all holier-than-thou about it, and "talks down" at other people (especially if it's you!) and talks a big game without being able to back it up. :\ That's just... unattractive.

And for your last dose of suck....




Gawd...

What do you say to that?

Nothing. That's what.

Ranting complete.

The hills were bathed in moonlight, the shadows not so stark;
Silver light reflected off his brown hide as he held me in the dark
– I love you, Mudpie!

This is me. I guess it would be hard to recognize poor Mudpie under all this suck. *nods sadly* But he's such a forgiving love that he didn't even mind(:

OH! Haha, for a minute I thought this was a girl you knew and you were just ragging on her... should have looked a little closer. For a minute I was like, "meooooowwwww, catty move."

Haha, although you might not love what you see in these photos atleast you can look back and see how far you've come, right? It's good to be able to watch your evolution as a rider!

That would be terrible :\ I do appreciate being able to look back and see how far we've come, though! It's just one of those things... *shudder*
