Smile What level rider am I?

I have been filling out an advertisement because I am going to half-lease a horse, and I'm not entirely sure what level to put.

I've been riding for 7 and a half years (I'm 14 now), in England, Hong Kong (China), and the US. I can walk, trot, canter, and gallop with no problem. I can jump, but only started jumping when I was 10, and only once every now and then. After coming to America, I jump in every lesson, and have gone up to about 2'6 and moving up quickly. I do a lot of cavaletti to work on my 2-point. I am comfortable with cross-rails, verticals, oxers. I can control and extend both the trot and canter, and know how to do half passes and circles of any size. I have helped friends out when they've been riding before, critiquing them and helping them improve. I've ridden green horses before, and had them buck underneath me. I used to ride ex-racehorses, who were very hot, and loved to run and buck like crazy. I've ridden in two jumping shows, one was a 2'3, and one was clear round 1'3. I also did one dressage show. I did a lot of no stirrup work when I was around 12.

I'm not a beginner, I'm extremely comfortable around horses, and can sort feed, muck out, identify when a horse is lame, groom, tack up (without help). I believe I am around an advanced intermediate? Help please. I would love to start leasing soon!

I think with that sort of horsey resume you'd be a perfect candidate for the right horse up for lease.

Good luck on the search!

I would be more inclined to put something and then summarize your skills. A level means lot of different things to different people..

Skills as you describe are more advanced than intermediate, OMO.
