Feeling Grumpy

I’m just in the mood to be pissy this morning.  First, I hate Joomla.  It makes me feel stupid because I can’t even effectively upload photos much less link to a video and have it actually show up as a picture.

Then I was putting away my test scores from the dressage show, and I started thinking about the woman who won first place over Vento and me, and I got annoyed all over again.  She has a fabulous older horse (15 or so) who is trained to within an inch of his life, and is utterly bomb proof.  But just before she went in to ride her test her trainer was on the horse warming him up.

At the last minute they tossed this woman into the saddle, and she trotted around a little bit, and got led up to the gate, entered, and rode her test.  I swear this horse could have done this test by himself.  She was just a passenger.

That’s the kind of shit we used to see all the time on the Arabian circuit.  It shouldn’t be permitted in an approved dressage show.  It’s not permitted in eventing.  The trainer can’t warm up a horse for an amateur rider.

I don’t mind that she bought a “made” horse.  People do that all the time.  And we all have coaches, but they shouldn’t be putting the polish on a horse moments before the test.  A person ought to have to do their own prep before riding a test.

There, got that out of my system.  If I think of any other grumbles, I’ll lodge them.  🙂
