Don`t get me wrong, and feel all insulted—-There is NOTHING wrong with being an uneducated sloppy old rider, content to just get by and have fun rides on your horse. If that is you, then you are not who I`m hassling. Heck, that was my riding for about the first 15 years I rode. I didn`t even know the difference.
It`s the kids who look you in the eye and ever so earnestly declare “how much I want it, and how hard I`m working” that need to put their money where their mouth is.
Jack Le Goff didn`t take any prisoners. Not any. He`d look you right back in the eye and say, “Don`t tell me how well you can ride. Get on that horse and show me.”
