    Someone who falls off a lot?
    Yanks on the bit/mouth too much
    Has bad hand placement
    Poor communication with the horse in general.
    That's my short list. Sorry I didn't see your video.

    I havent seen your video but I would consider "novicey" pretty much what Vidaloco said.

    Poor posture
    Obvious poor comunication (using only hand pressure to halt)
    Moving "against" the horse (looks unbalanced)


    I wouldnt consider novicey a rude insult. But some people have different opinions as to what novicey really is. Im sure your a fine rider...can you post the vid at all?

    Would you say im novicey?
    I can walk, trot, canter, jump (up to 3ft) and gallop.
    I have loaned a 3 year old
    and I have loaned a grumpy 17.2 hh, who I went galloping on the beach with (pretty fast as he is a tb x)
    I have had a go at xc
    I have rode forward going horses, bucking horses, spooky horses.
    Here is my youtube:
    YouTube - xXxequestrianxXx's Channel
    Most of the videos where from AGES ago (apart from latest video), so yes I know my riding has lots to improve, I need to work on my hands, heels and position however I have not been riding much for the last 2-3 months so I have not had a chance to practice

    I see many mistakes. Just because someone jumps 3 foot does not in my mind make them an experienced or better rider...they are simply brave. I have seen kids that could barely canter doing 2'6"-3'.

    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.

    I agree with Spyder.

    You are a "good" rider but your technique needs some fine tuning. You seem a bit bouncy at the canter, your hand position needs to be more correct and I noticed that your two point is a bit off. I notice with the palomino at a trot you are quite rough with your hands as well.

    We all have flaws with riding so don't take it as an offensive means of an insult.

    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!!

    Personally I think you looked great and you were having fun. Isn't that the main objective? Unless you are training for the Olympics or some other important competition, you do it to have fun. Keep doing what your doing

    yepp I know, In that video that was the 1st time I have rode in about 2-3 months so I was a bit rusty lol. And the Palomino GOD I know I looked TERRIBLE on him! My hands were all over the place, I cannot ride him to save my life, you really have to work hard to get him going, he is quite awkward to ride. And my jumping position is what I definatley know is really badd! Im trying hard to correct my mistakes but im finding it difficult at the moment to practice as I don't have a loan (lease) horse anymore
