Thank you for all the responses! I am still working on getting some videos up -- I have a youtube account but apparently I have to create a profile (which automatically makes me a Google+ account) to upload videos... I don't want another account floating around! I will look at it in the morning.
Zeke - yep, I would say that's true! I'm starting to understand the actual beat of it... But I get so tired so fast! Okay, thanks!
Onuilmar - wow, you are quick! See, I only have a year before I go off to college so I guess I'm really anxious to get in as much as I can, as fast as I can.. That is not the right mindset to have I suppose! Yes that does help, thanks.
Starlite - Ok, thanks. I have asked if I trade "working"/cleaning, etc. at the barn for extra lessons, but he said he does not think I'm ready yet and that later I would be able to come out and practice on my own. The barn has about 16 horses and he is the only instructor, so he relies on a few of the girls to help him ride them.
PunksTank - Thanks, that was very helpful! My instructor introduced me to 2-point (which I think is the same as half seat, right?) for like 2 seconds last week, but we never went back to it. I will ask him next time and try that at home.
I think my biggest problem (which you will see when I can finally get the video up!) is that my legs go forward into a "chair seat" when I am posting and no matter what, I cannot get them to stay back. Also, my hands are all over the place but that should be easier to fix. Mainly I cannot get my legs to stay at the girth and "quiet" - they are swinging everywhere. :/
