How good a rider are you?

There are many different riders, from beginner to Olympic level. I have just taken this quiz up to experienced young rider level. This "experience" I'm talking about is if you are able to control all the gaits, jump anything from a cross-rail to an oxer at about 3 to 3 and a half feet, jump lots of courses, ride lots of horses, from really lazy to feisty, and do well with them, and do some classes at horse shows and do well with those as well!

This is to see how good a rider you are, and also to see if you actually don't mind any aspect of horses and riding, and all the chores that come with it. You could be a really good rider, or a beginner with hardly any experience!
