Beginner- New to riding and know very little. Require schoolmasters
Intermediate- well rehearsed in basic gaits and working on making them better. Learning new/more advanced movements in riding. Ride school masters but also some horses not as polished
Advanced- Confident and able in basic gaits, good knowledge of advanced movements, begin to handle problem horses with ease, more polished rider.
Expert- Can ride anything, highly comfortable riding any movement on any type of horse, polished riding.

I like to think that the transition from beginner to intermediate happens at that point when you start improving the horse each ride. It's that whole "every rider is a trainer" thing- beginners just don't know enough to train horses to do the right thing. That's why they get the well broke school horses who are forgiving enough not to take complete and total advantage of the rider and who have been around long enough to not immediately pick up bad habits from poor riding

As for intermediate to advanced... I'll figure that out one day when I get there!
