[RC] Equitation at Cougar Rock? - Sky Ranch

Is it just me, looking at it *wrong,* or was there a lot of really poor riding at Cougar Rock?  I've been looking at photos, (hughes photography) and I'm astonished.
I know, I am a newbie, and I am certainly NOT saying I'd ride it better.  However, I'm surprised that so many riders are hindering their horses, not helping them.  BTW, I'm *not* necessarily talking about the horses that stumbled, fell, etc.  Some of those riders appeared to be helping their horses tremendously, and they recovered their footing. 
Guess I'm trying to say that I am more impressed with the horses than some of the riders, because they were able to climb the hill despite the problem on their backs.
