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. :]

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)

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:
