Horses/riding in week ends


hello. i am visiting riding school in the weekends as i got office in the week days. will this schedule make me a good english rider? if not, please guide me out.

Hi, it is not the time that you ride, rather the instruction you receive when you do ride, the quality of that instruction and last but not least the dedication you put in to the riding.  It does help of you have a natural ability too, but hard work and dedication can go a long way.  

When you ride on weekends, do you receive lessons or just go hack?  Remember even riding for"fun" can be educational.  Use it as time to get to know your horse, maybe practice things like posting (of you ride English), back and stop, obstacles, the list is almost endless.  All of that can help you to be a better rider.  

If you have more questions please ask!
