    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!!
    I didn't say your riding was crap and xkatex pointed out some of the areas that need improvement. What I have found though is that even if you had a perfect seat,hands etc. most riders lack what I call "thinking riding". You don't have to be aiming for the Olympics or even showing to be a thinking rider. I have one student that never shows. So she could very easily just ride around and do her thing. She would get very bored very quickly. A thinking rider is always challenging themselves to do things better or look for ways to make things more interesting.

    So many times I hear riders say ..well I did 6 walks to the left and six to the right then 10 minutes of trot an 8 canter circles with 5 jumps...NOW WHAT.

    Absolutely no thought put into that ride at all and if the horse falls asleep under them because that is what they did yesterday well...geeze no wonder.

    hehe yeah I totally understand what you mean , When I ride I like to do fun things and make it different from my last ride, especially for the horses they must get so bored of doing the same old thing all the time. Its nice do do something more challenging for both rider and horse!..however I don't often get to do fun/challenging as I don't have my own horse and I only ride my friends horses at the moment

    Well you're def not a bad rider

    My tips woul dbe to rele work on your back. It hollows out very often and that's definitely not good. I think that makes you "look" novicey. However you may not be a novice, its just how it comes off. Clearly you are very balanced however, so it doesnt seem that you're a novice

    Just work on the little things that are being mentioned here and youll be fine

    Don't listen to what those other ppl are telling

    And P.S. Look at THEIR videos....usually the ones who are nesty, are bad riders lol. If theyre good rider take their advice, otherwise...ignore em

    Didn't see the vid but agree 100% with Vidaloco! Remember Hannah that its easy for people to criticize, as long as your having fun and not hurting the horse I think that's all that matters sometimes.

    It was just one person who said I was 'novicey' she watched my videos then told me on msn, But I have never seen her ride as she has not got a youtube so yeah im just going to ignore her =]

    Yepp definatley I want to ride to have fun, not to be criticized on everything, I do work on what im doing wrong, however im never going to be in the Olympics so I don't mind if im not perfect, as long as im having fun and not hurting or irritating the horses then that's all im worried about
