Smile Critic my progress in 4 months :)

Okay, so 4 months ago I started riding, and by starting riding I mean started riding. I got on a horse for the first time 4 months ago. So far I have perfected these things:

-proper position
-trot
-posting trot
-the right posting legs
-2 point
-jumping ( I have jumped a small verticle, and cross rails. )
-and I can canter on the lunging rope

I have done other things too, but have not perfected them yet. :)

So, that is what I have learned in my first 4 months :)

I am planning to lease after this summer coming up. :)


So please tell me if my progress has been okay, and if you think it's a good idea to lease at the end of summer. I plan to practice A LOT during the summer, so please take that into consideration.

Thanks,
Ponycrazy

Alright, some pictures would be helpful so we can see what you mean by "perfected". I find it hard to believe that anyone has perfected their position and perfected jumping in 4 months. While I'm not saying it is impossible, I think we could just better help you if we saw a picture of you jumping, etc.

You seem to be making good progress, though! I don't think you have to be the perfect rider to start leasing a horse. You just have to know how to care for a horse, tack one up by yourself, etc. Since you will probably be taking lessons still while you're leasing this horse, your trainer can help you improve and the horse you lease can be a good teacher as well. :] Good luck!

I know pictures would be helpful but I can't upload my pictures onto my computer. And I know that I havn't 'perfected' completely like someone you would see on T.V obviously. But, I have gotten it down pat, and I am quite comfortable with it. And when I meant by perfecting jumping, I am not jumping 3 ft, I have only perfected the jumps I do, which are not that high. So, thanks for the critique :) It is appreciated, and I hope I will be able to get pictures on here some how, and soon. So thanks, and don't get me wrong, I don't think I am a perfect rider, I still have years and years ahead of me :).

Thankkss,
Ponycrazy

That's understandable. :) Well you seem pretty confident, and I'm sure with a trainer's guidance you'd be able to handle leasing a horse. So if you can, go for it! I'm sure that'd be tons of fun and a great learning experience.

[FONT="Comic Sans MS"Tthats good!

Just saying if you don't want opinions don't read on!
Also saying if you don't agree with me I would love to learn why![/FONT]

-proper position
What is that suposed to mean. LIke heals down toes up elevated hand elbows in and so on... BUT that is good!!!
-trot Good!
-posting trot YEAH!!!!!
-the right posting legs its called a diagonal
-2 point YEah a good stron 2 pt. Is essential for jumping!
-jumping ( I have jumped a small verticle, and cross rails. ) WOW I just started jumping this winter and I have been riding for years!! O.0 I assume there under 1 f.t and there trot in trot out. I personally disagree with you trainers teaching style.. I like w/t/c before jumping but I wont get in to that.
-and I can canter on the lunging rop GOOD you trainer has you on a lunge line.. Those are the best lessons.


GOOD For you!! Sounds like lots of Progress.. Umm I don't know about leasing this summer. You have to know about horse care,fist aid, giving supplements, riding safely on your own, being self sufficient and knowing what to do in different situations. By Summer you will only been riding about 6 months. But I do think if you can learn this all by summer or helping around the barn with every thing this is quite possible...


Excuse my long post and rambling on..I am bored at school!

Apple core,Say no more,I'll be your friend,Until the end.

Thanks for your critique! I have a close family friend with a horse, and she teaches me a lot, so I know about all of the first aid, and things like that, and I was thinking about leasing her horse, so I would know everything about that horse. Thanks for the constructive critisism!!! I will use it in the future :)

Thankss,
Ponycrazy :)
