As most of you know I sent in Equine Affaire application to ride in some clinics. Last Dec. mom took video of me and Pippi on flat, I posted it to Youtube and sent in my application in January. Today I got a comment on my flat video from somebody. Their comment stated "You're too big for that horse and for goodness sakes get him off that tiny circle. Take some lesson and learn how to ride". Now that was just RUDE. I dont even know this person and the posted it so that everyone can see it. Yes I know I have things to work on with riding, never claimed to be perfect (well I have but only in a joking way) and I submitted the video to receive help in a clinic and so that my trainer could see us together. At the time of the video Pippi and I were having problems with our canter but it wasnt horrible. And I am too big? Huh? Yes I know Pippi and I are not really proportional but it is not like my height or weight is hurting her at all. And my circle tiny? Well it is not Huge by any means but It is NOT tiny. Here is the video she commented on. Tell me what you think.
I did comment her back. I feel like she should know that what she did was not okay so that she doesnt do it again. I responded with "Hello, You commented on a video of me riding my mare this afternoon. I just wanted to personally thank you for your concerns but I dont see where you get off telling me I am to big for her, that my circle is to small, or that I need lessons. I may not be proportional for her but my height and weight are not hurting her in any way. My circle was not to small for her at all. It may have looked small to you in a VIDEO CAMERA but not in real life. I had submitted the video to a clinic and for my trainers to see us so that I could get help. Thank you so much but I pay my trainers to tell me what I need to work on, I dont need free advice from a stranger I dont even know."
I was not mean just not nice at all. I found it very rude that she would have the nerve to comment on someone's video basically telling them they suck. I would never be able to tell someone I knew what she told me let alone some stranger. She also gave my video a thumbs down so for a few hours I have a 100% dislike, but mom went and liked my video so now it is only 50%. Garshhhh the Nerve of people.
