Recently someone took a picture of my pony and I taking off long from a jump where I lost my eq. And posted it on Tumblr saying I 100% shouldn't be allowed to jump or even ride. My pony's ears were back (they're always back when being jumped, it's just her, she's had everything checked, no saddle pains perfectly okay) and they said I abused my poor horse and that I force her to take terrible and long distances and I ride dangerously and put myself and my pony at risk. They said that my eq. Was dangerous and that I flail around at jumps all the time and can't be defended for hurting my horse.
All of this is not true of course. It was a bad jump and I lost my eq. Over it. You won't look perfect over every single jump and she took the worst picture ever taken where I obviously didn't have a great jump and posted it on a public website.(I know the girl, she's 25, I'm 16) I don't abuse my horse, I love her to death. She's green and tends to want to take the long distances on her own. I would never ride her dangerously or put her at risk.
I don't know what to do. I got so much hurtful hate and I'm already pretty insecure. The stuff wasn't true, but I have no way to tell the 80+ people who commented it's not. I just feel like such a terrible rider.
