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?
