What experience level would I be considered, free lease situation?
I talked to a woman who owns a barn near me about possibly working off lessons and she said she already has a girl who does most of the chores for her board. That was about a month ago and she texted me yesterday telling me about a mare that needs some miles. From what she's told me, the horse is broke and knows everything but just needs to be exposed a little now and get some consistent riding under her belt. She's 6 years old and sure had a girl who used to ride her but she bought her own horse now.
I'm suppose to go meet her and the mare to see how we fit at 2! I'm pretty excited. I think I can handle her fine considering most of the horses I've owned were half trained lol. But we'll see!
I'm wondering what level I'd be considered? I have a lot of knowledge, but not so much physical, hands-on experience. I've rode for maybe 8 years, but very inconsistently. I can walk, trot, lope, keep a horse on a balanced circle, I understand leg pressure, I feel confident on spooky horses but when it comes to buckers or rearers I'm not. I haven't had to deal with that much.
Sorry this is probably not the most organized post, I'm on my phone.
