    What do you love about teaching?

    For those of you that coach, teach lessons, etc. What do you love about teaching? From starting new beginners to coaching FEI level, what's your favorite part? Why do you do it?

    I absolutely love seeing that 'yeee pony!' excitement in the eyes of kids. I love working with kids who absolutely adore horses and want to know everything about them. (Like I was when I was a kid) I love taking that and molding it into a skill that makes them safe and responsible around horses without killing their passion. I couldn't imagine doing anything else! I feel like I'm helping create the next generation of horsemen and women. They'll be the ones to carry on this legacy. I'd do it for free if I didn't have to eat!

    I love the "lightbulb" moments. When everything just clicks and they get it. Could be anything from someone figuring out how to post to asking for lead changes to counting strides in between jumps. I probably get more excited about it then who I'm teaching.

    I love helping the horse & rider have a better connection, like said ^^ the "click moments", I get so excited "SEE!! HOW DOES THAT FEEL?!"
    I love seeing people get it, be comfortable and ride better for their wellness and their horses. I like sharing my knowledge and my style/techniques of riding a lot too. I also like standing in the ring, following the horse and the rider, really being "hands on".... I've had a few coaches who just sit in chairs or on the fence and just yell, I am not one for sitting I like being in the action and up close.
