That is an awful way to get started back. Shame on that instructor. Every instructor should have a "Steady Eddie" for students to start on so students can get the basics down and build confidence at the same time. Sounds like she needs to put some time into her own horses and honestly if they behave like that she has no business taking people's money for lessons, she should be spending money to take some herself.
I can imagine that being on an island definitely could present a challenge. Though when I hear the word island I think of the beautiful riding scenery and opportunities that could present, living in a landlocked state makes me forever jealous of those who have the ocean and beach for a backdrop.
Your friend that has the horse, if her horse is quiet & beginner friendly perhaps you could ask her to help you with the basics? Or possibly pay her to do a partial lease to get in some riding time?
