a-pirouette:

Unless you are Karen O’Connor or have completed a four star event, you may kindly shut the fuck up about how well a horse’s test did or did not go and how good or bad the rider was.

This is ridiculous.
"If you’re not a politician and have never run a country you may never say anything negative about the government"
"If you’ve never played in and won a Super Bowl you may never critique a player’s or team’s performance"

These riders are PROFESSIONAL SPORTSMEN/WOMEN. If people want equestrian to be taken seriously they need to stop chucking a shit fit every time someone critiques a professional

Second ride on Ricky! He has no concept of leg/spur so we’re working on actually moving forward as well as the non existent steering. It’s really good practice turning him using my outside leg and rein because all the inside rein makes him to is banana his neck without actually doing anything. I need to get my hands out of my crotch but it’s a bad habit because I’m trying to stay completely soft with my hands and work him off my leg/seat.

On “unpopular” opinions

I don’t get why people get so butthurt if others dare to say something not 100000% positive about their favourite rider/horse. Does it affect you personally? No.
People have different opinions and unless they’re screaming slurs or making ridiculously outlandish claims it’s really not up to you to tell them omG YOURE WRONG HOW COULD YOU EVEN BE SO WrOnG!1!!1!1 If someone has incorrect information it’s very easy to point that out without being a dick about it.
I do not like Reed Kessler. I don’t like how she rides or how she acts. Big deal. My not liking her has no bearing on your opinion of her and I have the right to my opinions. I also can’t stand the excessive foreleg movement that 99.98% of high level dressage horses have. It’s ugly AF and just because it’s “flashy” doesn’t make it correct.

People need to let people have their opinions in peace. Jumping up and down and trying to bash your viewpoint into their head doesn’t change their minds it just makes you look like a gigantic dick.

I can’t deal with the proportions of this photo. Is it a pony? It looks like a pony but she looks like she fits it. So confused
