I'm in the position where I am teaching a couple of adults "how to ride". One is a rank beginner (my boyfriend) the other is a good friend who hasn't ridden in years. I'm only attempting to teach them enough basics so that they can go on a trail ride (on a safe horse) without endangering themselves or others. Neither one of them is open to taking lessons from a real instructor (despite my numerous attempts to get them to), so that's where I come in.
Does anyone have any helpful suggestions or methods? I've already started working on a general lesson plan, but I'd like some other people's input as I've never really done this before (beyond teaching kids the basics of turning).
