Thanks everyone for the great advice! Yes I knew there were things wrong. My legs are very weak. They've gotten stronger but still pretty bad.
I am horrible with my arms. So I will reread all advice given and definitely chant it in my head.
Thanks tiny.. I do well with a good instructor. And I was wondering the same thing about the other horse. I believe it's her personal horse and I think there's something wrong with his mouth/bit cause he's sound when he's walking with no contact. "/
My next lesson is on the flat, which will be great. I think I was off in my position because my instructor says I was sitting too far back and to bring my shoulders forward. I've got to figure out the right position;

Yeah I agree... I don't like being that close to another horse. Especially when it comes time to canter and I have to wait for the horse infront to canter because if I do, I would run into them.
