Well, my instructor is resigning once the farm finds a replacement. This is kind of a bummer. I definitely liked her.
I've gone to another area instructor in the past. He made me a little uncomfortable.. and while I know he was trying to be funny, his jokes came off strange. Like.. when I tied the knot in the Western saddle, he was like 'OK, that went out in the 40's. Do it like this.' Maybe I was just afraid of liking him too much, you know?
Do you think it would be a good idea to visit different riding schools around the area, ride under different instructors, and have one lined up once my current trainer leaves? Or, should I just wait it out for the new one?
This stinks-- I was supposed to start leasing..
