Welcome to my world, lol I feel like I'm the worst rider ever especially since I'm just NOW learning to canter after all these years.
But hey, you are a great rider. Just because you aren't at the same level as the other girl jumping "small" jumps (my rear end, she's probably just bragging) doesn't mean you suck!!!
Everyone learns at different rates, and we don't all get the same kinds of horses to ride. But if you can ride a horse with a big smile on your face, you are a FABULOUS rider because your horse is happy and you're happy! If your horse is being a jackass, it happens! And guess what? Still fabulous!
We all have good and bad days, same as the horses. Heck, 10 years is a long time, but time doesn't equal experience. And all experience is not equal.
You can ride a horse, and you can jump a horse! Keep on trucking and you'll just keep getting better and better :)
