I'll ask my instructor about hills- I'm not sure I'm allowed to ride out of the arena because he's not my horse... Yeah, he was leaning on the bit. Just bump up and KEEP your hands higher, or bump up and go back to where they were before?

You bump up and then put your hands about where they were (maybe slightly higher), atleast that's what I do.

Oh okay! I'll try that next time I ride. It might not be until Saturday with school starting tomorrow and all :(. I'm very excited though because my mom (who is the HARDEST to convince) said that she is almost 99% convinced to let me lease Thumper! Yay :). Any other ideas for getting him to work from behind instead of pulling himself along?
