I have been trying to find a trainer that could give lessons for western riding. My goal is to be better balanced and to be able to ride at a lope or canter without holding onto the horn. I have several years of riding experience, but just lack some confidence to ride freely. Although I am very comfortable riding at a walk and a trot.
My problem is this person charges $65/hour and is 1 hour from my home. Which would limit me to only riding on the weekend.
Would like to know approx. How many lessons it would take for someone to get up to the next level of riding.
