    Taking lessons

    I just got off the phone with a riding instructor who lives in my area... and I'm taking lessons!

    I'm 22 and have wanted to take lessons for years, as I really want to improve my riding and there's only so much you can learn from TV and the internet... and I'm finally going to do it!

    Due to my financial situation (full time college student and only working a few days a week now) I'm only going to have a lesson every other week, but at least I'm getting to afford something finally!

    Congrats!! Just a thought... Look into volunteering at a therapeutic riding program. You can often times get discounted lessons, LOTS of time around horses and over all its rewarding! :) The place I work gives lessons for $20 a half hour for our volunteers.

    Good luck and HAVE FUN!! =D

    I actually have offered to volunteer at a spot like that before... There was an ad in the paper looking for volunteers, and I called several times and left several messages, but no-one ever got back to me... so I gave up.

    I might... It just seemed to me a bit odd that after leaving several messages letting the people know that I was very interested in volunteering at that place, they never got back to me... it was back around the beginning of summer, too... I haven't called them back after my last message about a month and a half ago.

    Could be a miscommunication? Change of phone number? Wrong area code when they call back? Idk, can't make excuses for them. But for $20 a lesson it could be worth it! I know I CERTAINLY wouldn't be where I am in the horse world today.

    What kind of lessons are they?

    There are some truly flaky people in the horse biz - sounds like you might have run into some of them.

    Awesome on the lessons - I know you'll enjoy them! They are ADDICTIVE.

    Yeah, I can't wait! First lesson is on the 19th at 4pm. The instructor is going to assess my riding and figure out what level I am and we'll go from there!
