Having a trainer that is going to tell you like it is; that is what makes riders better! My new instructor kind of gave me a more gentle "what-for" when I asked a question regarding my horse not listening (she had given us a task and I felt hindered by my horse not listening, she told me to do it again, and I, in a flustered manner said "He is not listening!")... she let me know in NO uncertain terms that I needed to listen to her and do what she says WHEN she says it and we will overcome the problem, haha. A spectator to my lesson later said "Wow, she was on you HARD!" While I don't think she'd cuss at me, I do anticipate some future being yelled at sessions, lol.
I love my first instructors to death, but they just didn't have the "what-for" kind of personality when it came to me riding! I was super-excited when I called the new trainer and she said "Okay, I'm putting you on a lunge lesson first off..." Okay, super excited and crazy nervous!
