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..
