Ya and that qualifies you how? Going to a clinic does not make you an expert in judging his riding ability. It makes it harder as you get all caught up in all the hype.

Riding western for a year does not in anyway qualify you to discern one rider from another in terms of ability. Please elaborate what TYPE of western riding you were doing, because there is oceans of difference between many if not all western disciplines. Heck some people say they ride 'western' just because they've plopped their behind in a western saddle.

So you know more then someone who has been riding and showing reining horses for almost 2 decades? Really? My ability has been proven by impartial judges.


My ability to judge riding and horses has also been proven many times. I pick good prospects. I pick good trainers to train and show the open level ones. I can also pick a score of a horses run. This comes from YEARS of doing what I do. It is a learning curve. I did not start out being able to do this. I have been around reining and reined cow horses for so long now that I know what I am looking at. I can tell good riding from bad. I can judge good hands from bad. Again been around good riders for a long time. I have the honor of riding with and around some of the best trainers/riders in the WORLD. When I show you will usually see Shawn, Mike and Stacy and many other top reiners showing at the same show. I have been watching these riders before they ever won anything. I remember watching Stacy show Can Can Lena before she won the Congress on that mare. Same with Roxy. I also remember Shawn before he ever one a single NRHA Open Futurity. You could tell he was going to go places.

Even a blind squirrel can find an acorn ever once in a while.

Also working a horse on the ground does not translate into good riding. I have a friend who can work a horse on the ground with the best of them. Her horses are all Halter horses. She can get them to do anything from the ground. However she does not and can not ride. She will be the first to tell you. She has halter horses b/c she can not ride.

That statement you quoted says nothing of PPs ability.....it says the person was mesmerized....ie. Spellbound, hypnotized, Enchanted......
Why would you take that as a glowing reference to someone's ability?.....it's a side show....
