I just changed instructor, (my old one got an office job for the winter) and had my first lesson with the new one today.
I thought it was really interesting the different things that they have had me do for the same thing. E.g. My old instructor had me do haunches out to increase the horse's obedience + suppleness, and this one has me doing shoulder in for it.
Also, the old instructor preferred it when I rode in a more collected trot, and then change the length of the gait with my leg, this one prefers a medium trot first, then changing the length of the gait with my seat.
I was just curious if anyone on here has similar preferences, or a special way of doing things with their horse and why they chose these?
