I had no idea it would be so hard to find an instructor that you clicked with though. :(
Depends on your luck really.
I went through like 5 or 6 trainers (all recommended to me by different people) before I started working with my current trainer (also recommended to me on different forum). And it was a mess in a beginning: I was all over the place with my legs and hands, my horse was a lazy barrel 100% time on forehead, you name it. Still the instructor was very supportive and encouraging that we CAN do it. I mean... It's doable with the right trainer, you just have to find that special trainer and believe in yourself!
