Question Starting English lessons in a few months.

What is it like? I believe my teacher is planning to have me jump and do dressage or something. As you may have noticed, I know absolutely nothing about English. I always swore I wouldn't be caught dead in an English saddle, but, well, people change. I'm very much looking forward to it now, but I have no clue what to expect. My teacher wants to move me along quite fast, but I'm slightly worried I won't move as quickly as she wants. I've only ever done Western pleasure, and I quite love it, but I've always wanted to show, and my horse is perfect for English, so, well, here we go!

I just need to know what to expect. I've never even watched any videos with English riding.

No hour of life is ever wasted that is spent in the saddle.
