I have a student right ow who taught herself for a yr before she started taking lessons with me 3 months ago. She's got a big ottb, who she brought back from being a wormy underweight mess. All this student used to want to do is run, so she bought a fast horse. Realized her horse was becoming a nut job, and now is learning how to do hunter work with her. Her most frustrating part is keeping her heels down and I line with her body. She bounces all over cause she braces for her mares *HUGE* movements, so posting is the hardest part for her. Also getting her horse to relax after being pushed for so long.
She says she enjoys her lessons, but more than once she's had to get off and collect herself out of frustration. Its all part of the learning process, but at the end of a good lesson, theres nothing better than seeing a hay horse and rider connect :)
