Ask Nicole Bellissimo: What are your main qualities and flaws as a rider?
I’m good at most things however I’m nervous when I get asked wether I want the jump higher or not however I DO want it up I just get nervous
Hey Maddy!

Tough question! I think a quality of mine is my patience, especially with young horses. Our horses only know what we teach them, so if they are not understanding what we are asking, that means we are not communicating it well enough! I also like to take my time moving young horses up to the higher ranks, and I think it has really paid off. While I know I have many flaws, I think my biggest flaw is over analyzing during completions. I tend to stress myself out more than necessary!
