I'm going to be an instructor!!!!
So I was talking to the owner of the farm where I ride (who is also a good friend of mine) and she was telling me how shes looking for an instructor to help with lessons, shes been getting a lot of calls from people interested in taking lessons and she doesnt have the time to do it all her self.

I offered to help her out (I dont have like a degree in riding instruction but I have given more beginner lessons then I can remember over the years and everyone says im a great instructor!) So she was thrilled, Im thrilled (I really need a job!) and we're going to start planning it out together tomorrow! I'm really excited, and nervous!

Any advise? Thanks!

Congrates!!! I remeber I loved to play around the world in the saddle when I was younger. I also LOVED doing trail courses and what not! lots of fun trying to remember what to do when. :D

I'm very familiar with riding instructors as my own mom is an instructor :)
Really, you just have to relax--you don't have to be perfect. Everybody makes mistakes :)
