I agree with BeauReba, because some month ago a girl that had no license to teach had to pay 11.000 € to her student who fell off the horse.
And now to the critique of the young girl you are teaching: first of all: away with those spurs!!! They are the false instrument for a riding pupil, whose leg is not yet "fixed" to keep a horse walking. Spurs are for very good riders to give very fine aids.
And I would say on the first pic the stirrups are a little bit too short.
But apart from that she´s on the right way!
