Glad to hear the rocking worked. Learn what you can from the place you are at. I think any time in the saddle is a lesson

Wow, your lessons are expensive!! Especially since they are group ones! I had dressage lessons $25 for an hour one-on-one or $20 for a trail ride.... I'm really dissappointed in some of the people giving lessons now-a-days (not saying anything about your stable in particular). They don't have people with experience teaching... Not going to name anyplaces, but I sold a horse for a friend and when the new owner would come to ride him it was a sad, sad sight. She'd spent thousands of dollars taking lessons for years.... Her position was horrible, she didn't know what a lead was, she'd never canetered before, she didn't know how a bit worked, and more.... She even told me that she learned more in an hour with me than she learned through all of her lessons.... Poor girl even thought when her horse flexed vertically that he was being mean and wanting to buck....

Ouch. Yeah, lessons are pricey. About 30 dollars for 20min. to 30min. This time, we only had 2 ppl, including me, with one instructor. It was nice, too. I forgot ti mention we CAN unsaddle, so it is not cutting you out from the horse experience too much. ;)

Lol, I think I've only unsaddle a horse once where I work..... but that's just because I'm lazy... they give me another horse all ready to go or I go clean stalls while someone else unsaddles it for me.... except when i worked at camp....... my entire job was to saddle, unsaddle, and lead elementry kids around the pasture.....
