You should be thrilled!!!
The more you teach what you are trying to do.. the more YOU understand it. You'll get there, I promise!
When I began to let my best friend (who is a better rider than me) on my horse.. she only knew about jumping.. nothing about contact or being round or leg yields or seat bones (and noooo this is not a bashing on jumping. She didn't learn the foundation basics of riding :P) I started to teach her.. every little thing. About contact, about half halts, posture, leg yields.. and she had fun popping him over little jumps.
And oh my word Sky blossomed with her. And the way they cantered.. I wanted to knife myself! I was so jealous.. but then it hit me at once. She's riding my Sky. Sky's not killing her. Sky's so happy... I helped him get there. He feels safe!!! He's cantering!!! He's being ridden BY SOMEONE ELSE!!! I just got soooooo happy!!!!!!!!
Jealousy is an evil thing.. change your perspective and you'll be a lot happier :) You'll get there Rochelle.. it just takes some time :)
