yeah because i have 1 hour lesson that sometimes gets merged with the half hour lessons i ride a pony that loves to detour towards the gate after the half hour riders, so after that i had a private lesson with her and she started basically whipping my pony to get it to listen and then afterwards i managed to get a great trot going, she came near my pony and he bolted away from her.
it depends on the weather mostly.
For instance today it was boiling so we went on a hack because i doubt going round in circles in this weather is good for anyone especially since were not used to it.
But when we do have lessons it varies, sometimes on the instuctor and who's in the group. Like a couple of weeks ago i had an instructor who spent half the lesson shouting down my ear
