I live in a Western populated town and am wanting to find an English riding instrutor, as you may have already guessed they are few and far in between lol. I am going to place ads on VirginiaEquestrian.com and Craigslist.com hoping to find an instructor. If anyone on here know's of any in Virginia please feel free to let me know :)
I want to know what I should ask when looking for an Instructor? Or when I write the ad what should I say in it? These will be the first lessons I have EVER had. My dad taught me to ride Western and I mainly trail ride. I have also barrel raced and done some other "rodeo" type classes as well as several types of pleasure classes. But I have never had a real lesson so I am lost when it comes to finding one.
Another thing... I am a bigger rider and I want the instructor I get to be "Plus-sized-rider-friendly" if you know what I mean. And as far as that goes.. How would I ask if they are or how would I know if they are?
Anyother advise/tips or anything you would want to tell me would be greatly appreciated :)
Thanks so much.
