Thanks LeahKathleen. I'm hoping on starting to compete with him soon and slowly work our way up with Show Jumping. So I will be the only one able to ride him because of time and no offence to anyone I don't want him screwed up.

Please don't take this the wrong way, and I do not mean to be intrusive, I am only curious. How old are you?

13, When I said screwed up. I mean it as I've got a way of riding and other people have different ways and I've worked so hard to get him where he is and I don't want to end up back at the beginning. Plus I love him to much to let anyone else ride him! Oh and Pumpkinzmybaby ride your own pony (You know what I mean and that I'm joking)

Well - it is my opinion that no one under the age of 18 should give lessons. If your student gets hurt - your parents are responsible, not you. Especially when you don't have your student's parents' consent.

However, I suppose that isn't any of my business.

Best of luck with all this.

Its not really giving lessons its letting my friend have a ride on my horse and helping her out. It wasn't really my idea it was mums. LeahKathleen I don't "teach" anyone to ride on Chinga anymore because of: His training programme (not major but set out on a day to day basic that is good for us and not over pushing him), snobiness, if someone falls and also the only people I would let ride him are good friends and none of them apart from Jalah and Kristy are good riders and I don't want to teach friends beacause of what happened last time.

I do help my instructor teach the Jr lesson on Tuesdays when I am not riding Corby. I learn how to correct a riders posistion and I also get to learn how to teach people how to ride (its interesting) also I get to pick up on their mistakes and learn stuff that I don't learn in my group by just simply watching.

I was not trying to be rude, sorry if it came off that way. I was simply stating that anything can happen, and it would be a terrible situation if your friend were to be hurt - especially one with an attitude that you had described - and her parents decided they wanted to hold your parents responsible.

But like I said, it isn't any of my business what you do with your own horse and your friends - and I certainly wasn't trying to be rude or tell you that you are not qualified to teach lessons. You may well be qualified to share your knowledge with others - but you simply are not of age to hold the legal responsibility if the worst were to happen.

Again, my apologies for coming off rude or snobby. That was not my intention.

I agree. You shouldn't be "teaching" or "showing" someone how to ride unless your 18 or over. And she wasn't being snobby she was trying to help. Don't get offended by what is said. Its all trying to help you.

In most cases, riding the canter is very, very easy in comparison to the trot. The problem with learning to canter is learning how to trot into it and trot out. Unless your horse is really well trained, it's unlikely that it will transition down to a nice, smooth trot with a beginning rider. In my experience, people haven't fallen off at the canter, but the trotting after the canter. The rider is stressed, the horse is stressed, the trot is rough and out of control, and it just doesn't work. Unless a rider is competent at a rising and sitting trot, as well as two point, they should not canter, and when they DO, it should be on an easy going horse.
