    *shakes head* For two years, I had to show English with a horse that was completely Western. Not my idea whatsoever, but he was the only one available to show at the time, and I really wanted to show with all my friends. Anyway, he was dead slow, not to mention completely spooky. We barely ever accomplished anything. The best placing I got with him was 7th out of eight. Sigh. Every lesson with him felt the same- repetitive, trying to accomplish a moving, forward pace, but it never got better. Two whole years. And not a thing to show for it. Many times I would leave, only to start crying. Rainy was a total turnaround for me. I felt so amazed that I got to ride a horse that moved! :) Now my lessons are so much better, but I will never forget all those horrid lessons.

    Yeah, I hate those. I just started going to a new barn and my instructor is so nice. She never yells and always knows how to fix everything without making a big deal out of it. I really think it depends who you work with, but it's hard to find the right trainer.
