Those Lessons

Has anyone else had those lessons where everything seems to go wrong?
The ones where you just fell like crying? I don't now why but sometimes you're muscles just don't feel like cooporating with what you are trying to do in your lesson lol. I don't think I'm the only one am I? I've had some but none latley thankfully!!haha

Ah... Makes me think back to when I was just starting to learn posting trot.... I couldn't rise out of the saddle without using my legs to save my life! My trainer was like, "Keep your legs still! Don't use those stirrups! Do that again or you aren't even going to have those stirrups!" Oh, I went crazy... I just could do it. Dang, I'm glad I kept with it though. Looking back on that now makes me smile.

Omg! Yes that's how it used to be with me. I could not get the hang of posting it just didn't feel right haha. Even though my instructor was very patient, I felt like I was letting her down or something.
I probably couldn't hold 2 point for more than 5 seconds either lol.That was a while ago!
I'm very happy I didn't quit because I was really thinking about it! :( But now I don't think I could live without horses! <3

Sghorselover-Would you mind using proper grammar, puncuation, and spelling? It is very difficult to read your posts. Thank you

I've had those lessons...many times. The good lessons make you forget about the bad lessons though. (:

Yah and the lesssons that go so terribly seem to teach you so much. It sounds funny but that's what I've found.

I live in a house but my home is in the stable.

last time I had a lesson I got pissed and basically got off & said im going home [had to trailer an hr to have a lesson] I thought the trainer was going to work out based on the first 3 lessons, but then we came to a major cross roads training/jumping wise. He was a total jerk & tried to get me to man hadle the horse, when she was clearly scared. That horse had never stopped at a jump before that lesson. Not the best lesson experience of my life !

I wish I could find a trainer that I really liked around here !
