Okay, (if anyone remembers) the riding Instructor I have been taking lessons with told me I had to be strong enough to stop a horse from falling. Taking the advice from all you wonderfully knowledgeable horse people, I'm going to try and find someone else. I didn't do so well for my first selection.
So, how do you know which instructor to choose? How can you tell if their teaching style and your learning style mesh from a short meeting or phone call?
I really don't have the time to look for an instructor too much further than 30 minutes from my house. At this time, I don't have the options to be extremely picky. It may be a case of picking the best of the worst bunch (they don't even teach the style of riding I want within 70 miles). How do you know which one to pick if all of them are not super close to what you're looking for?
(Thanks for all the help. You guys are an awesome resource!)
