Question Good For Only Three Months?

I have only been riding 3 months at my new barn in Kansas after a 2 year break. It is like starting all over again from the beginning, except you somewhat know what your doing. I am 14 and I am just wondering if I am making good progress for my age, and for how long I have been riding? I ride once a week, and might be taking lessons twice a week in a couple of weeks. I know that people progress at different rates, etc. I am just wondering what everyone else things! I currently jump 2"-2"6' and do Hunters. One thing my trainer hates is when people ride in 2-point the whole time around their course or at least lean forward in a little bit less then a half seat. So, my trainer said starting November, EVERYONE at the barn riding in Hunters and Jumpers is going to be riding bareback for the WHOLE month! =-/ Joy!! :roll: Hehe anyways... here are some recent pictures and videos! The last one was from today.

It's been a while since I've ridden Hunter/Jumper, but I'd say for three months you looked pretty darn good to me! Bareback for the whole month? That'd be wicked!

Thank you for feeding us years of lies. Thank you for the wars you left us to fight. Thank you for the world you ruined overnight. But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.

Your position is great for having taken such a long break, but I don't think your trainer should have you jumping just yet. You have a few balance issues that could use some attention before you add jumps to the equatio.

Thanks! And yeah, for some reason I put to much balance in my left foot (NO Idea why) Even if I try to put all my weight in my right foot, my trainer says I need more weight in it!
