The way I found my current instructor and by far most effective coach was to watch other peops ride at shows, who was winning? Mostly all from one instructor, and consistently, almost every show I attended, her students were there, beating the pants off me. This was 20 yrs ago, so I asked her if I could be her student, no, sorry, totally booked, check back next month. I did, still booked. Anyways, I had other instructors, other horses, and every so often I would check with that instructor to see if she had openings, no, sorry. Then about 2 years ago, my daughter started riding with her, huh? She told me to call the instructor right away, a few of her students left. I did, she had space for me & my husband and we've been riding with her ever since. I am in total heaven, I have never had instruction like this before and through those years I rode with lots of coaches, with this lady, its different. Every lesson I learn something or improve on something, it's amazing. Keep hunting & good luck.
