Osawapilot, the daughter isn't *that* young, she is probably around 30! When I explained to her that my back injury prevents me from moving as quickly as I'd like, her response was that 'she'd had back injuries and could still do things quickly'. This is why I had talked to the mother in the first place, and still don't understand why the mother had the daughter give the lesson that day. The daughter won't understand the problems a more mature student has until she gets to that age and those aches and pains start creeping up on her, assuming that she can even still ride herself!
When these lessons are done, I will be moving to a barn where the students are started bareback to ensure that they have the proper foundation. I think I will like that much better.
