i do (kind of) lol

I ride hunter on the flat, hunter over fences, dressage, tried "english" (saddle seat), western pleasure (not a huge fan honestly to slow for me but what ever yall like) um I played around with barrels (like twice) I have done western riding, and I LOVE REINING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It rocks so much I have been riding for 8 years but I have been taking lessons at least 2-3 times a week and I have broke about 8 horses, not one a year but I helped my trainer break them. My thing inequitation I <3 patterns gives me a since of security I guess lol.

I showed in the all-around Novice Youth and 13 & under classes at Paint shows. I quit though becuase I felt the horses were just treated as machines to beat and spur into loping correctly... I don't know if it was just the area I showed in, but I never saw anyone give a horse a hug and rarely a kind petting (and I'm not saying everyone is like that everywhere, so don't be offended). I think I did that for around 2 years? Blah... happy to be done.

There's something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.

I ride hunt but I havent' competed QH hunt yet.... My horses isn't ready... or ... maybe I'm not ready? I don't know....

I show at the AQHA shows and I give my horses hugs and kisses all the time. You have to learn to love and trust them to be a good team.

But some trainers are like that, I think it might have been the area you were in.
