Focus on tiny steps of progress. When I first got my horse, I was so overwhelmed by the thought of trying to make a perfect riding horse out of the little baby I had, that I couldn't see any of the progress we were making and ended up pushing too hard. Thankfully, there aren't any long-term ill-effects from my mistakes, and I am learning more and more that the smallest bit of progress is something to celebrate, and that things can't be learned (or taught, or re-trained) in x-amount of days.
Keep us updated! Good luck, and remember to breathe deeply :) You can do it!
