There is NOTHING more infuriating as a coach, than a student that can't deal with being given instruction on something they don't want to do. Sorry sweet heart, but that's what riding is about unless you are happy to plod trails all day.
I have been chased with lunge whips, screamed at, called useless many many times, been worked until I've passed out, made to get off my horse and spend the whole lessons doing fitness exercises because my core wasn't good enough... need I say more?
You don't go to lessons, to have sunshine and rainbows pushed up your backside by someone who is a worse rider than you. You go to lessons, and pay good money, to have someone pick apart your riding and fix what you are doing wrong.
Sure, I want to go to a lesson and ride piaffe, passage and pirouettes - because they're 'fun'... but I can't do that, until my horse has got the basics down 110%. And if I find that process boring, then, I am definitely in the wrong sport and should probably take up knitting. Riding horses is hard - there is nothing easy about it at all. If you want to get anywhere, you HAVE to work hard and you might not like some of the journey, but that is where the true horse people get split from the rest of the crowd.
Obviously, if this coach is not wanting to get you jumping just yet, there is a reason for it. Now I suggest that you discard the holier than thou act, swallow your pride, and listen to what this coach has to say. You may well be surprised and find that your riding improves out of sight.
