This is a thread where we can talk about our trainers.
Why do you like them, what makes them special or funny? What sort of relationship do you have with them? How long have you been with them?
I love mine. She's good with horses and motivates me to do my best. She pushes me enough to excel quickly, but not so much that I get pushed too much out of my comfort zone.
She's also a funny character.
In group lessons she always mixes the students names up (even if she's known the for a long time) :P.
She doesn't accept anything but perfectness. If you start your canter badly, she makes you slow your horse down and retake it until your take off is balanced and controlled. She expresses herself loudly and won;t be shy to tell you what she thinks.
I personally love her. She can be tough, but how else are you going to learn? The way she teaches is sometimes so dramatic, things actually get through my head the first time around. (my brain has some slow processing disorder lol!
A short but funny story: I had scheduled a lesson on Saturday, Feb 26th, because I started spring break there. I told her clearly 3 times at least and she even wrote it down, but apparently she understood January 26th. That day fell on a Wednesday and obviously I was at school. She called my mom in the afternoon inquiring why I had not come to my 11:00 Am lesson??
Haha, my mom was so surprised and told her... Err, because she's at school?
My mom cleared up the whole thing with her and all was good after, though it's so like my trainer to do a mistake like that... so typical, I love her.
If you need to rant about a bad trainer you can do so, but let's try and keep this thread on the positive side!
