I wish I would have handled it differently looking back.....
At any rate my husband says at times "you need to grow a pair" HA HA but I think I am going to recite the line from the movie A league of their own when Tom Hanks says "There's no crying in baseball" but replace that with "There's no crying in Horse back riding ".....
aww thats too bad =[
it sometimes sucks looking back on things you wish you had done different !

my old trainer [& my favorite by far] was in the army before he started teaching riding & he would scream & make me do push up & sit ups & laps & all that jazz. he even made me do push ups in a pile of manure once [for swearing]...gross ! he would also make me & other students repeat 'pain is weakness leaving the body' over & over while we did 2pt with no stirrups around the arena.... it was awesome & made me appreciate the yelling & toughness. also if you werent wearing boots & breeches & gloves with a belt & your shirt tucked in, no lesson plus push ups ! talking back lost you [and anyone else in your lesson] your stirrups for the rest of the ride. he is also a super nice fun guy, i guess he just found a really good balance.

it also takes a lot to get me to cry, my boyfriend says im a robot !
