Riding lessons...please help!
I am going to be starting my 9 y/o son, Brandon in some riding lessons very soon. I would like for him to use his own horse, Doc in these lessons. I got him a new helmet, but now have to get him a new pair of boots since his bit the dust last week. Brandon is just starting out.....never had lessons before (except from mom & dad, but we suck at it! lol) He will be riding western. Basically, I just need advice since my hubby and I have never had professional riding lessons before....we want our son to learn the right way to do things. So, what should we look for in a trainer? On average, what is the cost of western riding lessons when using your own horse? What do we need to take with us besides helmet, boots and the horse? What kind of things should we start working on first?
