How to begin... Oh, I know. I'm in need of a coach in the North-West area around Edmonton - preferably under two hours away from Rich Valley. I ride Western, so a western coach would be preferable but I wouldn't mind learning a bit of dressage either.

I've been riding for the majority of my life, but on and off so there are things that I can't do/don't understand and I currently have no one to help me out. I mean, I really only started to use my leg properly two years ago when I got some help and the woman shoved my leg against my horse and went 'Leg. On.' I went "Oooooooh.... oh! OH! So that's what they meant!" lol.

I have a very 'english' seat, and use my reins a lot when I'm not sure what else to do and can get tense in the canter. My balance so far this year has been pretty good and I've been relaxed, but I'd definitely like to have some instruction to become a better rider because I'm not so confident about my seat when it comes to the younger horses I'm working on. So far its been okay, but I don't think my cues are as they should be.

I don't have the ability to haul horses to and fro, so lesson horses would be excellent... as would on-farm visits. I'd also prefer one-on-one lessons as I learn better that way.

Does anyone know any good instructors in the area?
