Using Comparable Interface

I'm having trouble writing code that will take in an object and compare the objects based on a return from my getScore method.  Any help is appreciated.  Any additional information can be given on request also.

     public class ShortStirrupRider implements Rider1, Comparable <Rider1>
       public ShortStirrupRider(String nameofRider, String typeofPony,double heightofFence,double overallScore)
         Rider = nameofRider;
         Pony = typeofPony;
         Fence = heightofFence;
         Score = overallScore;
       public int compareTo(Object Rider1)
       public String toString(){
         String output = "Name: " + nameofRider + "\n" +
            "Type of Pony: " + typeofPony +"%\n" +
            "Fence Height:" + heightofFence + "\n" +
            "Overall Score: " + overallScore + "\n";
         return output;
public class Rider1 implements ShortStirrupRider, LongStirrupRider
       public int setScore();
       public int getScore();
       public int setHeight();
         double height;
         private static final int inch = 4;
         private static final int hand = 1;
         double equineHeight;
       public String getHeight();
