Educate yourself before trying to prove anything. Spend time on the basics, and don't use your horse as a guinea pig. Admit mistakes and don't try to fix anything yourself. Most importantly, get with a trainer specializing in your discipline! Equitation is not only about making you a better rider, but less of a burden on your horse.
