My trainer is amazing :) she gives torture lessons which involves stuff like: 2 pointing the whole lesson, 2 point ups (she made these up, get in your 2 point with your arms out (have the option to put wrist weights on your arms to make it harder) and bend at the hip (keeping your back in the right position) until your nose touchs the mane and come back up; it strengthens your back and core SO much), doing big circles, little circles, tricep/bicep curls with wrist weights on (all while troting around I might add; sometimes normal posting trot, sometimes no stirrups, sometimes 2pt), and other stuff that totally kills but makes you so much stronger. We do game lessons, bareback, we've played football on horseback (that's fun), and rockin' and ridin'. But those lessons are only occasionally, normal lessons are still fun though. She comes up with the coolest courses for us. And she is such a good instructor and has a great eye for things.
And she is just an amazing person. I've been riding with her for almost 10 years now and she has basically been my mom. I see her more then I see my own mom haha. We're like best friends, no joke, we text each other like every day haha i'm such a dork. I love her to death as my trainer and as a person
