Yes, but that's the thing, if you're not telling a story with your video, whatever it may be, then all you get is a bunch of unconnected footage, and it's hard for people to watch and appreciate your video.
You actually had some interesting stuff on there in terms of footage, you just have to learn how to properly present it.
For example, the footage of you with your horse on the rope actually worked with the super imposed footage, that was actually a nice effect because you always had the common element of the background which remained unaltered. Everything else didn't really work because the shots were always unrelated.
That shot of you riding the horse into the trailer and grabbing onto the roof of the trailer for a dismount was actually pretty cool. There was something else layered on top of that footage that I didn't care about, and can't even remember what it was. That piece of footage stands on its own.
Think of editing a video like writing and formatting an essay in Word. You're looking for substance, well laid out and presented in the simplest terms possible. Lots of effects like different fonts and colours will only make it look messy and harder to read. You want something that's clean and straight to the point, and any effects that you use have to be consistent with the whole work so that it feels unified.
Video editing is not as easy and straightforward as most people think so don't be afraid to give it another go.
