The thing is... in this country (Serbia) just because you're "certified" for something, doesn't mean you can do it. Hey... I could be a "certified" ballerina instructor. Doesn't mean I know one thing about being a ballerina.
If you pay a lot of money, they will teach you about the few things that they know about... but for the most part, they teach people how to ride horses safely, and then let them go on trail rides. They don't teach people how to compete, how to do certain things.
Not at this stable. This stable is the only stable in our town, and though it's nice, it's a racing stable. There's a huge track, and everything. They do have horses for other purposes, but even those are endurance horses, which don't call for extremely talented riders. I know how to ride, and if I want to learn something new, I CAN ask for a bit of help, but for the most part, I'll have to practice on my own.
And I'm perfectly fine with that.
