Even if the girl has a high dollar, push-button schoolmaster, she still needs to know how to ride well enough to ask the horse to do the correct maneuvers at the right time.
Have you ever tried to ride an upper level horse of any discipline without being able to ride that discipline correctly? Yeah, it doesn't go over so well.
No, not jealous. And my parents are wealthy, however, I do not own "top of the line" horses. There is one farm imparticular who has a rider in my grade who can't ride crap and her parents went to Austria and bought her a $800,000 Grand Prix horse just so she can get around the 1.15m. So why don't you skuddle along before getting into an argument about me and my riding, and her and her parents money making her able to ride. And btw, I have ridden upper level horses, Grand Prix horses, because people trust my riding. It went fabulous and I was being paid to ride the horse and jump her till they moved to Georgia. Don't believe me? I have pictures. And no, she has only enough mental capacity to know the courses, I asked her once if she did any leg work to get him bending, and she asked me what leg work was. Yeah, lets think about arguing with someone who MAY accept your high-brow and narcissistic ideals to get your point across. What a negative way to go about my statement. Congrats on being the first person to tick me off on here. *clap* you are surely a champion rider, look how you handed it to me. Please, try and have at least half heart when you look at other peoples posts. TB-Out
