Alright so me and my mom were talking (well she was already planning lol) about giving lessons...me giving lessons. I am a little hesitant but only because I am shy.....very shy lol. I am 19 and I ride horses all day everyday, training, working, riding, ect....horses literally ARE my life. My mom has trained horses her entire life and I have been following her in her footsteps.
And she thinks that this would be something good for me to do and challenge myself a little more.
Just need that little extra boost that I won't melt on the spot and pull the "Uh...um...well...duhmmmm" lol!
The first "clients" would be some girls ages 15 & 16 that live down the road.....so they would be my age, but also might be the stubborn teenage stage type lol. Also would be doing it in the spring when the arena is melted and dried...
Any tips on how to engage and come across assertive and not like a big chicken lol? I don't lack social skills....I just am very quiet and need to be sorta poked until my shell cracks if you know what I mean.
Conformation is how far the horse CAN go,
Mind is how far the horse WILL go,
Training is how far it DOES go.
