    My dressage instructor said Im a strong rider?

    What does that mean? We went to go try some hunter jumper horses that were for sale and she wanted me to get on first because I'm a "strong rider". Is that a compliment? I have always thought that I have very soft hands. I have ridden mostly thoroughbreds doing long and low work. The only time I really collect is when I canter or leg yield or do a sharp turn. I half halt with just my fingers on the outside rein (and use my seat but I don't lean back). I did notice lately that some horses I never rode before will halt from the canter just because I half halted but I just wanted them to trot.

    I would take being called a "strong rider" as a compliment meaning a good rider. When trying out a new horse I do think your trainer should still ride first though.

    I'd take it to mean confident and efficient, you want them to trot they trot no questions asked etc.
