It has been 10 years since I have owned a horse and about the same time since I have seriously ridden. I took a short ride on a friends horse yesterday that is hardly ever worked and I realized he isn't the only on that needs a tune up! So I am looking for someone to get riding lessons from because a horse is at the top of my list once I graduate nursing school.
The point of this thread is... can you guys give me some questions that would be good to ask when looking for a potential riding instructor? I just emailed a lady that posted an ad on craigslist and this is what I asked what her experience as a riding instrictor is, what style of riding she has experience with, is this something she does for fun or as a business? I don't want someone that just knows how to ride good... I need someone that can TEACH! I have ridden with a lot of extremely experienced riders, but that doesn't mean it's as easy for them to TEACH. Know what I mean?
I am in Tri-Cities, WA so if you live around here and can recommend someone that would be awesome! I want to taking Western lessons and the instructor needs to have horses available for me to ride! Thanks!!
