I found my most recent coach at a show, she was riding a basket case of a stallion that was trying his best to not do anything but leap around and she was really quiet with him and just got him working without resorting to beating the crap out of him or getting mad.
My new coach I decided to ride with because of all the great things I had heard, and I went and watched a clinic of hers and really liked it. I also love the way she rides, and the fact that she has ridden at the Olympics. She's turned out to be fabulous and I've learned a lot! Again she is really sympathetic to the horses and never uses un-due force.
