My name is Amanda. I've been riding horses since I was 9 (1999). I started with Hunters, changing to Dressage in 2005. In all honesty, Dressage is a million times better. I DETEST Rollkur/LDR/"Competition Frame". It's just a fancy way of saying you're killing your horses' spine. I also hate side reins, vienna reins, draw reins, and the like. Learn to ride without gadgets or don't ride at all. These are just a few things I am EXTREMELY passionate about. Have a problem with that? I probably have a problem with you then. So if you "live" for that, don't add me, k?
