Don't you hate it when...

There was this girl in my lesson on Wednesday, riding this horse Gus, whose old and kinda slow. He's very clutzy, and she was basically SMASHING him into jumps. We were all like, ready to slap her. In all seriousness, it looked like she was TRYING to miss the course.

She'd turn him at the jumps and then not steer or try to hold him together at all. She was leaning on his kneck and her heel was way up; I have no idea how she even got into my lesson.
I really hate when people who have no idea what they're doing are aloud to ruin a perfectly good horse. =P

Yeah, could you talk to the coach about it maybe?
Shouldn't your coach be correcting this anyways? Or was she, and the girl was just not listening?

He knows when you're happy.
He knows when you're confident.
And he always knows when you have carrots.

i hate it too!
and i also hate it when someone doesn't listen to the instructer and takes up the whole lesson messing up etc, so that means we don't get to jump as much since that person has to start over everytime they mess up!!!
they should go to easier lessons if they don't know wat they are doing!

Well, the instructor was telling her to steer and stuff, which the girl would not listen to, so she had to go around over and over and over and over and over, while we sat there waiting. =P

Ah, I have to agree on this one. It's like, the horse has so much potential, & they are just smashing it down. :( That girl needs some more training.

Ride more, worry less.

Yeah Im glad I cant say the same for my stable, because my instructor corrects our mistakes every time we make them, and builds a longer term of relationship. I think it is also important to educate this rider though, and be a bit more positive. She needs to understand exactly what she is doing incorrectly
