Can i get a share?

Hi all,

So i am looking to get a share as I want more experience and to build confidence in my riding. The problem is that all owners want 'experienced riders' which doesn't mean much because how do you define an experienced rider (not that i am one). So where can i get a share? I'm about 6ft so looking for a 15-17hh horse. I live in Barnet. I can do 2 days a week and am able to do basic stable work (can pick out feet, groom etc..)

I re-picked up riding a few months back and ride a couple of hours a week. I can walk and trot confidently, but am still working on sitting my canter. I should have it within the next 2 weeks. My main problem is lack of experience with cantering, by the time i get into canter in my lessons it's basically the end. I'm going out hacking this week so will get more experience then. As i said above, i would like to share a horse to provide the exprience and thus helping me to learn quicker. Does such a thing exist and if so where should i look?

 Why not place an advert in all your local tak shops, feed stores and riding schools and clubs. Be brutally honest about your experience but state how keen you are to learn. Someone out there might have an older horse that might be acting as a companion to their younger one, which might be perfect for you!
