It was the most amazing lesson of my all the lessons I took so far! Far Far better. I don't know if I became good or the new teacher was way too good for us.
Our actual teacher for some reason didn't come today so a covering teacher came.
The lesson started off straight with trotting and then cantering. It was so fast, switching between trotting to cantering then to Cantering to trotting. I mean we've never been taught like this before.
She kept correcting us and kept asking us to switch between trott and canter.
Additionally, It was the first time I've been told that you have to hold the reins before getting on to the horse and while getting off the horse. Can you imagine I have been going for past 5 months and never knew until today.
I didn't even know how to put the stirups up and how to untack the saddle (I hope I am using the right word here (un-tack)??) until today.
Our normal teacher does everything for us, she even correct our stirrups if they are not correct but today we had to do it ourselves.
I think our normal teacher started teaching us from beginning and that is why she is very gentle and calm with us, taking us slowly whereas this covering teacher didn't know us at all hence asked us to do all that. It was like she was pushing us to do more and more and more!!!
Addition to all this I was so good at the lesson that she asked me to lead the group! ....Initially I said "you made the wrong choice of making me lead" but then I realize I was wayyyyy too good!!! Hahaha
Anyhow I enjoyed today's lesson very much and I am sure in the next lesson we all going to ask our normal teacher to push us further to do more as we are fully capable of doing more (well specially after today's lesson)!!!
Beduoin sorry I totally forgot to ask about your question. The lesson went so fast I didn't even realize when it started and when it finished.
