    I am working with a pony Corby with my instructer at the moment. I am working on giving her work outs and getting her to listen. I am doing this why I play "Right hand girl" for my instructor teaching the Jrs how to ride. I ride Corby once a week in the Jr lessons. Its great fun :P

    You have gotten some great advice...
    When I was your age I was really involved with Pony Club and also found myself a trainer who was willing to let me tag along everwhere...pretty soon when she enough good horse sense she started letting ride some of her clients horses...with their consent and liability aspects included due to my age and the fact some of them were none the less...naughty naughty horses....I just tried to ride as many different horses as I could. Finaly by the time I was about 17 or so people were payinng me to ride their naughty little horses and sometimes show them...Why people do not like to show their own horse mistified me at that age becaus I loved it...
    As I got older that same trainer and I had a business together that consisted of feeding and training horses all day.
    So my moral of the storey is that if you continue to ride and gain knowledge you will find a nitch where you belong...
    Riding and traingin can be dangerous that we all know...so just keep your witts about yourself and remember that livestock ...it truly livestock and they will always have the one reacting side of their brain that will forever be present and present itself at anytime....for the most part when training we can get the horse to have and use a bigger thinking side of their brain....but that reacting one will never go completley away...
    Have fun and stay smart and be a sponge right now and watch and absorb as much as you possibly can....
    School is always important and can even be incorporated into a horse type setting later...
    Half Pass.....

    I think you're getting a good start already if you've got an instructor who is helping you get some experience. My advice...ride or work with any horse you can get your hands on, even an older one; if they're younger green ones (with an instructor guiding you), they will help you learn how to become a very alert rider (in a good way), and the older ones will improve your seat, posture, how to improve your leg aiding, etc, because you don't have to worry so much about 'what the horse is going to do next'. Don't discount any horse that comes your way, because you can learn alot from any experience with them

    Yeah I mainly ride one horse in my senior lesson and that's Benson he is quite a shy horse who feaks at everything but with a calm rider he can do quite well. I've cantered on him and its great fun! My instructor also sometimes puts me on Billy if we are doing bending or barrel racing because cantering on Billy is also one of my addictions and his easy to canter on.
