Just sharing my extreme excitement after having my first lesson with my new trainer. She's got a lot of experience with jumping and is completely on the same page as me as far as my goals (which basically consist of riding my horse correctly and not killing myself as I learn to jump!).
I had absolutely the best ride ever, and Tanner enjoyed the heck out of himself too. She solved at least 3 of the major problems I have been trying to work on with him, of course by correcting what I was doing wrong (I always assume it's me, the Mr. Is so well trained). For anyone who is working on riding alone, I really think having lessons with a trainer you click with is about the best thing you can do for yourself and your horse. WHEE! I am still giddy over having our best, most collected canter we have ever had together.
MIE- I think she loves GM as much as you, so I'm pretty excited to be riding with someone who is so into being an effective rider.
