My Worst- Place looked like a dump. There were practically stalls in stalls, e.g one stall was at the front and there was another stall behind it in the darkness. The ground was very uneven and there was no drainage and the stall where my lesson pony was kept had a 1 foot drop in the middle of it and you can imagine my shock the first time I went in there. The lessons were beginner lessons and I spent 2 months learning how to canter but I didn't get it because the teacher was telling me completely different stuff than what I was taught at all the other schools and we spent most of them time doing nothing. And also she was one of those people who gave praise too much when you really didn't need it sat at the edge of the arena not even moving and she smoked ALOT infront of the students, in the lessons and around the stalls.
My Best-My current one the I moved to after the worst school. First lesson I was asked my skill, weight, height and was put on a SUITABLE pony unlike the other school and on my second lesson I mastered sitting the canter.
Fourth lesson I learnt to jump about 2' safely from canter and my 8th lesson (previous lesson) was my best lesson and I had an instructor who actually criticized (nicely) so when she did give you praise it made you feel like you really deserved it.
So what were your Best and Worst experiences like?
