I have been riding since before I can even remember. I jumped for a while when I was younger but I stopped around the age of 8 because I was showing AQHA and I wanted to focus on the flat classes. At the time I wasn't really interested in it but now I want something new to learn. I have a horse of my own but I will be taking lessons on a lesson horse. My mom trains horses although she doesnt do jumping and I have never had any other lessons besides from my mom and my older sister. What should I expect from my lessons? What are some things that we will be working on? I might have to end up taking group lessons (trying to get private but I don't know yet) so how have your experiences been in a group lesson? At shows will you ever have to do rail work and jumping? What are the different types of classes? What are the different things they will ask for in a class?
Sorry for so many questions!!!! I have only shown AQHA flat classes both english and western. I view myself as a pretty advanced rider and I think this may come easily to me, but I am not sure if the differences will be hard for me to adjust to.
Thanks in advance for your responses.
