    best option for me?

    So I've always wanted to become a professional rider (or at least be very good) and teach students and train horses one day.

    I began riding in 2000, so over 10 years at least. I first began with my aunt teaching me in Germany, for at least 1-1.5 hours a day, random days for 6 weeks. Then I got lessons at Sunny Brook (current barn) and then went to another barn (Equine Innovations) where I was there under a year as a stable hand (and had not so good lessons), thus returning to Sunny Brook.

    Truthfully, Sue (of Sunny Brook) is one of the best trainers I've had. But now, I feel like nothing is going forwards/progressing in my lessons. It's basiclly, working trots and walks, circles and leg yields. All for an hour, one day a week. So really, I'm getting bored. I haven't had a lesson with her in about a month or two (mainly due to work) but see Murray and ride him for an hour about once a week.

    I don't know if I should ask her for more in my lessons or what. She is the only English coach where I live, the nearnest English stables about 2+ hours away. Would really not like to give up riding as I just bought a great horse, but not to sure what to do.

    Any suggestions? Thanks.

    If you feel unsatisfied with the lessons talk to Sue about it. She may be able to tell you why you are doing what you are and so forth. Talk to her about your goals and she can help you in reaching them (such as becoming a working student). It is great that you have your own horse, but you really need to be riding as many different horses as possible. This is how you are going to really grow as a rider.
