I have been taking horseriding lessons since November. So far I think I basically "mastered" trot and slowly getting used to canter.
I am taking private lessons once a week - 1 hour. It is an open rounded arena with a path along and the teacher likes to change the horses to teach me different types of horses.
It took me longer probably to master the trot because :
1, I have started in winter and the horses didn't like the wind and the cold at all
2, I feel that I do rodeo instead of riding. Trying to stay on the horse. Each of the school horses has some "dislikes". So at least half of my lesson I try to move my horse forward!!!, or to the middle of the path!!!. Not talking about the horse who doesn't like to be alone on the path.
So it is really hard to move them forward and then trot and then finally canter
I would like to know if you have the same experience. Are the horses really more crazy or I am just not strict enough while correcting the horses.
