    Let us know how it goes!

    Someone above me just made a really good point about working with snooty divas and it reminded me what another student said about me as a teacher.

    A student (not mine) came in and, as we were talking, asked if I was a mean teacher. I kind of laughed because I think I'm a total push over! However, in one of my classes, I cannot afford to be "nice" - one toe out of line, and I have to come down hard. This is because of their behavior. On the other hand, most of my classes are a riot and we're laughing the whole time! I second that if you're a good student and listen, it may turn out she's nice after all and you're a breath of fresh air for her. I love it when my students can act mature and take some responsibility for themselves - those classes are so much fun!

    I think you should try and find an instructor that drives the way you want to drive.
    In my experience with SB, my first driving horse was one, The SB people drive in the ring only and do not take the time to really acclimate the horse to the cart and harness. They like them hot, you want, I think, a nice quiet safe donky for pleasure drives down the road and trails.
    SB people use overchecks you will most likely not, they don't use breeching very often, you will, examples like that.

    Try checking out eastern nebraska driving society on facebook, it is a closed group but they always want more drivers. Ask them to recomend someone in your area or maybe they are putting on some beginner clinics some time. If that doesn't work, PM me I have some other ideas.

    She did not have lessons tonight, so I didn't get to talk to her.

    So I got to talk to the saddlebreed trainer tonight. She said she would be delighted to help me learn about driving! I told her about my donkey & she chuckled & said she thinks they are wonderful little critters & if I want help with training him as well, just to let her know!
