I have no idea what loaning a horse is. Are you referring to leasing one because that in itself does not mean anything particulary.
What distinguishes a rider that sits a walk trot and canter from one that can be able to progress upwards is in how they approach what they do and the thought they put into it.
That is what you need to work on.
ohh no no no no..i just realised what my post must have sounded like!!..i DIDNT mean it like that, oh deahh!.. I have made myself sound like such a fool, I was just writing about what I have done, I know im DEFINATLEY NOT experineced in fact I know my riding needs improving loads!!!
I rarely jump 3ft I was just saying that I have done it and that I don't think a complete novice would be jumping that height quite yet (as some one told me I was novicey)
and yes loaning is leasing and again I was just describing the things I have done leasing does NOT make you a better rider.
I know im definatley not an expreinced rider I think im pretty crap, however I would not describe myself as a novice..
Sorry my last post made me sound so stuck up and make me look as though I think im good, which im not!!
