Just saying if you dont want opinions dont read on!
Also saying if you dont agree with me i would love to learn why!
[/B]
-proper position
What is that suposed to mean. LIke heals down toes up elevated hand elbows in and so on... BUT that is good!!!
-trot Good!
-posting trot YEAH!!!!!
-the right posting legs its called a diagonal
-2 point YEah a good stron 2 pt. is essential for jumping!
-jumping ( I have jumped a small verticle, and cross rails. ) WOW I just started jumping this winter and i have been riding for years!! o.0 I assume there under 1 f.t and there trot in trot out. I personally disagree with you trainers teaching style.. I like w/t/c before jumping but I wont get in to that.
-and I can canter on the lunging rop GOOD you trainer has you on a lunge line.. Those are the best lessons.


GOOD For you!! Sounds like lots of Progress.. Umm I dont know about leasing this summer. You have to know about horse care,fist aid, giving supplements, riding safely on your own, being self sufficient and knowing what to do in different situations. By Summer you will only been riding about 6 months. But i do think if you can learn this all by summer or helping around the barn with every thing this is quite possible...


Excuse my long post and rambling on..I am bored at school!

Thanks for your critique! I have a close family friend with a horse, and she teaches me a lot, so I know about all of the first aid, and things like that, and I was thinking about leasing her horse, so I would know everything about that horse. Thanks for the constructive critisism!!! I will use it in the future :)

thankss,
ponycrazy :)

Thats wonderful that you are learning to ride and doing well! It would be a great idea for you to lease during the summer! Especially on a horse you already know.

The only comment I have regarding what you have learned, is you should be able to canter on your own before jumping. Many trainers rush their students into jumping because so many people feel that it is the fun and exciting part of riding, but in order to be truly successful you really need to have the basics of walk trot canter down. Preferably for me with no stirrups to strengthen your legs and make sure your balance is right on track... but that's just me. :)
agreei dint touch jump till i could canter very well!
