Haha I was about to sayyyy Biiizzaaattcch before even reading the rest of the post just cause "WHO WOULD POST PICTURES OF ANOTHER RIDER JUST TO BASH THEM???". But then continued on your whole original post and figured it was you.

And I must say, you look much better than I did when I made an attempt to just *sit* in an English saddle.... I love the super serious face in the last photo haha

Gawd, yes. xD I get the most ridiculous "concentration" faces.

The hills were bathed in moonlight, the shadows not so stark;
Silver light reflected off his brown hide as he held me in the dark
I love you, Mudpie!

Laugh!! Honey, we were ALL BAD at one point..No one just sits on a horse and "poof" Olympic rider..If they do, I need some of whatever they're taking... I have pictures of me many years ago and I just laugh and say "Oh My God! I was terrible! and I thought I was good!!" Big ego crush...but hey, when you get to the point of knowing you were terrible. You've made the biggest change and know better now. You've "become" the better rider..

ETA - I still get those awful faces..I have my "focus face" in a ton of pictures..

Eaugh! What is this madness?!




I'm flailing up on his neck while my leg rotates back to his flanks, jumping ahead a ridiculous amount. I'm so much on his shoulder that my poor green boy has to heave his shoulders up, curling his neck back, to get over, while I am looking both down and backwards and leaning to the side.

Dear lord! xP

Girl I got you soooo beat with my first year showing. Someday when I'm really hammered, I'll post them. I've got one where I'm so far up my horse's neck over a fence, I can see his nose hair!

Face it, without evidence like this, we'd never have motivation to improve our riding.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

I have seen worse. I have seen better. You just have room for improvement!

It just makes me cringe. SO glad we've been on a steep upward learning curve since then and have improved so much!

If mudpie were the photographer, then it doesn't matter who the subject is or whether or not the subject agrees to the publication of the photos.

Photos taken of someone or something in public belong to the photographer, not to the subject unless the subject pays for them.

So, even if that wasn't mudpie herself, she wouldn't need permission from whoever is in the pictures.

Well luckily it is me, so that's all good(:

I would never post pictures of someone else especially not under a thread called "bad riders!" xD

Mudpie is soooo cute! I love the look on his face in those last pics where he is almost standing upright over those jumps.
