I like to be on Nelson about 15 minutes before my Coach shows up for my lesson, so that we are already warmed up when she arrives, and that we don't have to waste 20 minutes of our precious lesson time, on warming up.
I ask for alot of forward energized movement at the walk, long and low and do alot of bending work - shoulder in's n out's, leg yiedling, serpentines and all that good stuff. By the time my Coach is there, we are ready to do trot and canter work and jumping.
There's nothing wrong with doing a good warmup before your lesson so that you are both ready for the real work when your Coach is ready :)
