Hi… just curious if any of you who do in hand work, liberty, or other groundwork sometimes feel pressured or “pushed out” of the ring because you’re not riding?? If so, what do you do??
I noticed one of my friends doing groundwork/ Liberty yesterday and a rider was pressuring her to get out of the ring- but there’s another ring which she could have used!
It’s happened to me a few times, I often feel that
I’m not as important because I don’t ride… but the groundwork that I do with my horse IS important… it doesn’t take priority though vs an equestrian wanting to use the ring.
Wondering what you would do?
