So, if anyone remembers this
... these are the pics from the day :iconepiclaplz:


Quick summary: Me and Monster went on this "training show" thingie in the summer when she was still amazing and we had an -almost- clear round. I actually even got some great feedback by now from some more people, so yeah, I guess this did lift my spirits up a bit in these awful times.


FINALLY got the pics. Not that there were many of them. There were only two more, one of warming up in trot and one where we`re dashing towards one of the fences, but even this is better than nothing.


And as you see, 0.60m is small, but Monster was an angel and that`s what matters to me. I am just damn sorry she is back to being a major b*tch.


Top: warming up.
Bottom: Derping around n. 1, jumping over one of the oxers, Derping around n. 2

No, I switched stables and as she belong to the owners there, I had to leave her behind :/

That's a sad :( 
It's such a pity that horses can't switch with you when they're not yours. :/

Well yeah, but I've moved on to more experienced horses and improved a lot since then so I think it was a good decision, even if it meant leaving a small part of me behind :meow:

Ah I understand. And sometimes it's beter to move on. I used to ride for 6 years at the same barn. And I really liked the horses, but I didn't improved anymore after 4 years. Even though I really liked the horses at that quitting riding at that barn meant that I couldn't ride at all anymore, I decided to quit because it was way to expensive for learning nothing..

I really miss the horses, especially because I don't ride at all anymore. :(
But sometimes you need to make hard decisions, because it's just better.

Haha she is gorgeous, can`t disagree with that. Sadly she became an actual Monster again. She`s back to being impossible to work with and I haven`t ridden her in nearly a month :XD:

Well... Go work her black booty back into goodness! Maybe the weather change made her grumpy?

I can`t. Had a big fight with my teacher so now I`m riding at the other (dressage) trainer for the winter. Yeah, I think that`s it, but sadly can`t help it.

I can`t really believe these few pics look this good XD

Well, Monster is being awful on trainings, and the teacher blames me for it, saying that it`s my fault the mare doesn`t want to work because I was a bit strong on the bit a few times. There was a lesson where we had more refusals (avoiding the fence and going sideways) than successful jumps. So yeah, she blames me for it and yells everything I do wrong at me whenever that happens, and tells me my basics went shitty and I should work on my dressage. All this time, there is this girl (two of them actually), with skills WAY lower than mine, who jump ALL THE F*CKING TIME. And when Monster refuses with one of them in the saddle, instead of yelling on them like she does at me, she just goes "oh, try again." One of those girls actually smacked Monster over the hinds so much with a whip that the mare jumped into the air with all fours and squealed. And then there you have my teacher, who is telling me I`M hurting the mare and my basics are awful, while those two don`t even sit well in the saddle before jumps, push the horse forward by leaning forward, go into gallop by putting one leg back and smacking the horse with a whip on the inside hind ... and have an awful jumping technique. One of them is actually so bad that Strela, who is the absolutely easiest horse to jump with (you seriously show her the jump and she goes at it all by herself) was driving her around the fences. And with all of this, I`M the one with shitty basics. I dislike these double measures so I pissed out a bit at her, she pissed out on me and told me that if I want to quit the door is always open. -.-

So yes, now I`m riding at the other trainer, working on dressage, and I plan on only having dressage lessons all winter, which will not only be immensely useful for me but will also shut the trainer`s mouth. She told me to go work on basics, I did. :XD:

Well good for you in recognizing their riding techniques (or lack there of!)! I agree with you that your trainer's bias is obvious and incorrect. Perhaps she expects more from you or is stressed? Those other two girls dont sound like they should even be allowed over fences. That is just cruddy horsemanship. I think you definitely did the right thing by taking a break from that trainer and focusing on dressage. I definitely think that was a wise call. But DO NOT blame yourself for Monster's behavior and refusals. I am sure that you were not the cause of her bad behavior. Sounds like she a needed a really good attitude adjustment. Not your fault.

btw this [link] is the one that smacked my little Monster so much the poor girl squealed.

My friend (who doesn`t like her too and who edited this video) told me she put LOADS of refusals out, and that these are just the successful jumps. And even these don`t look too good, do they? :XD:

Maybe I am more critical because I`m biased and hate her, but I think she can`t be compared with me.

Definitely lack of :lmao:
And yes, she is biased, not sure if it`s because I have a license now and she thinks I should be able to deal even with the monster Monster, or if its just because their parents have more money than mine :/
Nah, they shouldn`t be XD But what can you do, money gets people everywhere.

I anyway want to progress more in dressage, so yeah, a break will probably do all of us good, and I`ll start to work again with Monster once the weather gets warmer (aka spring LOL).

Thank you!
