Question Help with English Riding Lesson Plans

Hey guys!
I am just starting out giving riding lessons and my very first client is taking one on the 20th. I was wondering if y'all could give me some ideas for a lesson plan. My rider is 15 years old, and she has been doing very well in the Western show scene, but is transitioning into English. As far as Western is concerned I would call her an intermediate rider. Do you guys think I should treat her as a beginner as she starts English? I've shown competitively in the AAA and Grand Prix show circuit but I have never given a lesson before so I was hoping y'all could help. It's been a very long time since I have taken a lesson, and have completely forgotten what kind of stuff my trainers used to have me do.
Thank you for the help, its very much appreciated!!

I would give her an easy horse that walks trots and canter and test her out.If she's competent than show her the intermediate stuff.My trainer used to do lunge lessons or have us start the lesson with ground long is the lesson?generally its half an hr of flat work followed by half an hr of jumping for my hr lessons.have her do patterns like serpentines and figure eights.set up some fun gymjkana stuff she can do but english style.have her learn the 2 point and the difference between the gaits if she dosnt know how to post teach her.

Just be careful my lessons are always have flat followed by half jumping so sometimes mix it up so she not bored and you can keep her on her toes
