Thank you very much guys, yeah with the lunge lessons I'm really hoping that after a month or so my seat will be a lot more independent. My horse (thankfully) is quite forgiving and I think the perfect combination of being quick off the leg but not shooting you into next week if you give him a kick.
I'll definitely talk to Jo on sunday as I'm going 15 minutesbefore the lesson to meet her and Aramis I've ridden medium level and one advanced level horse before and the medium level actually required a fair amount of leg so I'm hoping that Aramis isn't too sensitive she only has 4 horses 2 being ponies for children yet caters from novice to experienced but not compllete beginners so I should be fine right?
She also says that Aramis and Josh are perfect for someone wanting to gain confidence so hopefully it will all be fine and I'm just worrying about nothing :)
