Not everyone rides the same. Maybe that type of riding works for her and her horse.

Could you please use punctuation? Your post was a bit hard to read. :)

I do what you do, but when I was new to jumping, I tended to do what you described the girl of doing. Not as rash of course.

Give her the benefit of the doubt, :) maybe her horse is hot and hard in the mouth, or maybe she is new to jumping.

Every girl wants their own LOVE STORY, I found mine... :)
