I know when I am in a lesson and not understanding what my instructor wants me to do, I ask her to get on and show me.

You haven't said you are taking lessons with this lady, but I still think it would be fair for you to ask her to get on and show you what she thinks you should do to correct the horse or to have the horse move the way you are asking.

This will help two ways: First, you will get to see if SHE knows what she is talking about or she is having similar issues.....OR you will see how the horse was trained therefore helping you in riding him in she in fact does know what she is doing.

Agree with upnover about the correction in this case. I'm surprised she didn't give you instructions to that end.

I'm sure that if you keep up with this attitude, investigating all the possible causes, you'll soon work out what's going on and be able to fix things with a minimum of fuss!
Thanks! Really Ill ride anyway I can. I think to learn the most you have to explore all options

Hmm Good idea! Im going back today. The horse started limping on its right front last time so I hope all is well today so I can get back on!
I thought about asking her to to get on after like the 5th time he drug me through the trees to see if he did it to her.
I don't think he would cause she knows how she trained him and how to work with him...
IDK well see I guess
