Talking I'm going to be an instructor!!!!

So I was talking to the owner of the farm where I ride (who is also a good friend of mine) and she was telling me how shes looking for an instructor to help with lessons, shes been getting a lot of calls from people interested in taking lessons and she doesnt have the time to do it all her self.

I offered to help her out (I dont have like a degree in riding instruction but I have given more beginner lessons then I can remember over the years and everyone says im a great instructor!) So she was thrilled, Im thrilled (I really need a job!) and we're going to start planning it out together tomorrow! I'm really excited, and nervous!

Any advise? Thanks!

I'm very familiar with riding instructors as my own mom is an instructor :)
Really, you just have to relax--you don't have to be perfect. Everybody makes mistakes :)

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.
