What I can't stand in a coach is the kind that stand and bark out orders and just keep saying..thats good, just keep on doing that. For even if they are correct in what I want I STILL want better. I also believe in NOT allowing anyone to continue ( I will stop them and re explain or change to a different method) when it is not coming together (hoping that it will I assume) for every step ridden wrong is one more step trained into the horse that is incorrect.
And like an idiot, I thought I understood but did not, so I bumbled ahead, and it took a long time of no progress, because she thought I got it, I thought I got it, but I was clueless
I think this is exactly my problem. After a lesson my instructor tells me how marvelous I did, then I look at pictures of me riding and say "Hey wait a second, why is she letting me ask the horse to lift and round when I still can't keep my **** elbows bent?!"
I really prefer a nitpicky coach who demands perfection and when I don't get that I sort of just settle and grumble about it. But that's not going to allow me to progress of a rider so I need to demand more.
Spyder, how about I just come and let you yell at me?
