Thank you both, but you are treating me like a child. I am a very experianced rider and i own 3 horses that i picked them out myself.
Canterklutz and Saskia gave you very solid and polite

Go take some English riding lessons. They will help you greatly. (And anyone who says that they won't learn anything from riding lessons, are the ones that really, really
