    Yesterday I had a horrible lesson. Our instructor wasn't there, so we had a substitute(sp?) and she was a b**ch!!!
    She was really aggressive and confusing...And ahhhh! I just wanted to shout at her!
    I rode Sultan again.
    No pics or vids.

    Your position wasnt that bad! Just think of riding this horse as a great new experience, and youll be all the better ridier for it! My instructor is keeping wich horse I ride a mystery! She keeps switching me bettween 2 horses, that are COMPLETE opposites (one rushes, the other is lazy!) so that I will learn to adjust to a new horse quickly, and so I learn to really feel the horse jump, to know when to come in and ou of 2 point!

    New horses are always good, I agree. We have thirty-some horses and I switch between almost all of them from week to week. While I have the small group that I normally ride, I could be on an advanced horse one day and a beginner pony the next. I never know what I'm in for. :]

    That's how it is at my barn too, I never know who I'm going to ride :P.
    Sorry you don't like your substitute instructor.

    You look great for all that time off! Maybe you could speak to your trainer about riding a different horse/pony? Sometimes you just can't "click" with a certain horse/pony

    :) Thanks.

    Sorry this is late again..I keep forgetting to update this xD

    My lesson this week was much much better. My instructor was back. YAY!
    I rode Sultan again. At the beginning of the Lesson he was really fresh and super fast in the canter, which was awesome. Too bad my mum didn't film it. :(
    For warm up we jumped a fence which was in a circle. I hate them. I never have been able to jump them well. :P I don't know why.
    A few times I got in too deep and I also got left behind a few times. :(
    Then we jumped a course:

    Which went okey. And then we changed it a bit :

    Which went really well. :)
    Unfortunately my mum didn't stay to film them :(
    I have a few clips but I still need to upload them.

    I realized that it isn't really Sultan who has an uncomfy jump, but it's the saddle. It's horrible. Even my instructor commented on how bad it is.

    Here's a pic of him over jumping, getting in too deep and my form is horrible!
    (I got a little left behind)

    I'll update this later when youtube has finished processing my video.
    It's taking a VERY long time! >:(

    Soo... Last lesson was GREAT! :)
    I got to ride in a different saddle because Sultans is being fixed.
    It was much better.
    Here's a video (I'm too tired to explain the lesson):

    And a few screenshots:

    Best jump of the day

    Got really left behind

    And got in too deep:

    WOOOOPS! Completely forgot about this thread. :P haha...
    I'll try to update it more often now. Haha...

    My lessons are now at 20:00-21:00 on Mondays. They used to be at 18:00-19:00. And it's going to be FREEZINGGGGGG! :/
    I missed this weeks lesson because I was too tired to go because I had just arrived back home from England the day before.
