    To be completely honest, from the video you seem to be a confident beginner. Nothing screams out "advanced rider" to me. You're horse was on the wrong lead, you didn't keep her in the canter, and your body wasn't super stable.

    HOWEVER, there is nothing wrong with that at all. I'm not much farther along than you are but I am honest with myself. The worst thing would be for you to say you are an advanced rider and end up with a horse that is too much for you. It's no fun saying you're a beginner but it will be worth it when you find a horse you can get along with and learn on rather than fight the whole way.

    Good luck!

    Great post, Dressage. Faut, I would say you're a beginner, maybe advanced beginner. I like Dressage's analogy of a confident beginner quite a lot actually. A horse that can be steady for you to learn on and gain confidence and learn on is going to be best for you now.
    We all start somewhere, we all go through the beginner phase. You absolutely have to be realistic with your skills not only for your safety, but to ensure you aren't going out to try horses that are way beyond you. Be considerate of potential lessors' time as well.
    Maybe your riding school or instructor has half-leases available? That's how I started out... It gave us a chance to get a taste of ownership without risk, and I was able to ride one horse consistently for a while. HOWEVER - I think it's very important for riders to ride lots of horses to develop their skills.
