Hi all I've been riding on and off now since I was about 8 or 9. At 20 I've finally decided to get back into it 'for real' this time, and I'm really interested in taking things further thanks to all the confidence given by my new instructor. Four-five weeks in after a 7 year hiatus, I feel like I want to be challenged and take my riding to perhaps a more competitive level. I'm taking weekly half hour lessons at this new riding school, which doesn't sound like much but we get so much done! The group is way smaller than what I'm used to so we all get plently of one-on-one time and good feedback, even helping each other as a group too! At the moment I've been getting the hang of canter, which has been getting better and better to the point where it's as steady as trotting for me. I've also been doing a few jumps, which was a massive thing for me, as lessons at my previous school were plain, boring and holding me and everyone else back. Thing is, I'm absolutely loving it and I'm just wondering now if there is anything out there for a 20 year old amateur without her own horse! I know about the BHS scheme for young riders but I don't think I'll pass for 17 Anyone care to chat/share advice?
