So very, very, very excited!!!!!!!!

I'm so friggin excited!!!! I have had problems finding a trainer locally. The ones I have talked with, when they found out I competed Novice in Australia they basically said they couldn't take me on, that they wouldn't be any help to me. I don't know why.

But I finally found a trainer (albeit a little further than I wanted to travel) that will take me back to basics and build me up from there. Which is exactly what I need because I have been so out of the loop and I know I have gained a billion bad habits!

She is even willing to help me with Carolina to help build her back up to condition!

I know it doesn't sound all the remarkable but to me - it's made my day!!

That's great! It took me forever to find a trainer willing to work with my beginner husband. Most said they "had problems" with teaching adult beginner men. So silly.

Have fun!!

LOL! I'm glad it's not just me then. I even had one trainer tell me she couldn't help me because Carolina was trained at a level higher than her. That is great - but we need the basics again.

That's great news. Finding a good instructor can be such a pain. I'm still trying to find someone who is both reliable and affordable. Just curious. Did you try to share your good news with any non-horse people and have them look at you like you had 3 heads?

That's wonderful news. A good trainer who is willing to help is a priceless thing to have. I doubt that you have that many bad habits, no more than the rest of us anyway. ;p

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

That's why I asked. I came into work raving about how my new boots gave me a great jumping seat. I thought there was a snake on top of my head the way they looked at me. Great to have forums like these.

That is awesome. I actually found a stable that will do family lessons! So my two boys husband and I will be taking lessons together. I feel like I just need a confidence builder, my boys need to learn to ride properly and my dh is a beginner. I am so excited!

Well done! I have no choice in the matter of whom I go to! She's the only trainer in the district whose NOT from a Pony Club or ARC!!!

It can be hard to find a good trainer. And once you do it's a good feeling. Congrats, that is great news!
