It's official though, I am withdrawing from this site. Heck, I'll withdrawl from competing too since if I'm just an average rider, there is no way I could possibly have a chance at winning. And if my horse is so bad, heck maybe I will eat him. This started out as me sharing a victory I had with my horse, and some of you completly ruined it, even after I appologized for my ignorance.

No need for a dramatic overreaction.

we're not trying to be rude. It's hard for riders who have been riding for dozens of years to see a thing like this, where every arrow is indicative of a problem being avoided, and offer sound advice and have it go completely unheeded, even to the extent that you're making excuses for mistakes pointed out.

You can learn a LOT from the people on this site. I know this personally from experience - I joined this site knowingt absolutely NOTHING. The people here are extremely knoledgeable, and it would do ANY rider good to listen to the tips given by someone looking outside in. It's hard to see the fault in your own practice, but it's much easier for someone with an unbiased opinion.

Oh my gosh! I'm sitting in utter surprise here....Kylie, I loooved your wonderful victory and as I don't have much time to be online at the moment, just skipped to the last page. Whatever has transpired between pg. 1 and this page, let it go - I'm not going to read them.... Simply enjoy your horse in the beautiful way you have discovered :)

Kylie, your victory was awesome, nobody is or was denying that however it isn't the be-all and end-all. It wasn't your victory, but your arrogance that got people steaming.

I saw very few accusations and very little rudeness until you started making excuses, honestly. This forum is full of people who want the best for every other rider, and who tend to look at the 'what ifs' and the scary parts of riding. Almost everyone here is well aware that there is ALWAYS more you can learn, and there is always something that can go very very wrong in even the 'safest' situation. Everyone on this thread was just trying to open a path for constructive conversation.

And here you are, opening an argument again.

Opening an argument? I'm not arguing, I'm defending all the people you're accusing of being rude (myself included).

I, for one, would hate to see you leave this forum if only because my first couple of weeks here were spent 'arguing' with other members about things I now know I was totally in the wrong about AND looking back on those threads, nobody was disrespecting me in the slightest.

I've learned so much here, much more than I did in the few years I was riding under horrible trainers, or without a trainer completely. People are helpful, they give good solid advice and on the whole care very much about each and every other rider on here, regardless of how much their views differ. I'm sure every person on this thread WOULD be unhappy to see you go.

Well I'm done commenting on this thread, since it's made a turn for the worse. Sunday I will be back in my country, working with my horse again, where I will most likely present questions.
