Okay, so, the BO is thinking my instructor needs to ride Rena for a MONTH! She said they expect different things in FEI classes, and it would be better and easier for me to learn if my horse knew it. So I was thinking, whats so different? I did second level lastyear, and obviously I need to get better to do FEI Juniors this year, but in FEI classes, what do they expect that is different? Do you think a kid could teach it?
And while I have your attention, what do you think of my instructor riding my horse for a month? I love my coach, but I think it will be really hard not to ride my horse for a MONTH! I would be able to ride different horses a bit, but MY horse. I was thinking maybe two weeks? And then maybe we could go for another two weeks if that's okay? I just don't want to pretty much die from not riding rena, or rena going crazy because she's doing just dressage, im a bi believer that horses need to have cross training. Me and my mom have been talking it over and just thinking about it, so I thought I would get your guys opinion aswell. I want to learn and my coach isnt pressuring me into training, she would be happy just to give me lessons. But I want to do well when we compete and go higher in dressage, but I have always taken pride in training my own horse, and well, if my coach trained my horse then I couldnt take so much pride in that!
So, I would appreciate your opinions and knowladge! Right now im kindove leaning towards just putting her in training for two weeks, and see how that goes? But that's just what im thinking. Thanks in advance!
