While it was an obvious mistake, I don't think it was really a harmful one.

Once again, i think the horse is absolutely adorable, and you two look like a good team. Now, that the martingale has been noticed, just make a mental check for next time, that's all. I don't think anyone is reeming you to be jerks, just that the mistake is quite obvious if anyone had been paying enough attention. I know myself personally, would have noticed it immediately, but that's just me; your eye isn't as trained quite yet, and your trainer may have just been too busy to take note. Happy trails!

Hi guys.
This is Tyler her boyfriend. I was there that day as well and the trainer was consistantly keeping an eye out on the other girl her horse was acting up not doing a lot so the trainer was keeping an eye out for Jordan as well but was mainly focused on the other girl.
Jordan does know the mistake and has told her trainer she wants to do private lesons for now on.

i have my photography and my girl

Im very confused- were you riding in a lesson with the martingale like that? You're going back and forth as to whether you were riding alone or in a lesson. Even from a distance, you can tell that martingale is wrong. Time for a new instructor.

* edit: IF she saw this martingale at all and gave it a pass, it's time for a new instructor.

I was in a lesson.
The trainer was focused mainly on the younger girl who was in the lesson. I was in the lesson but she mainly focused on her. The girls horse was needing some help because she was acting up.
And throwing a fit so the girl needed help. So I understood why. I did how ever decide I am gonna start taking private lessons and mention this to my coach. NO she did not see the martingale as she wasn't really giving me the attention i needed my parents mentioned me telling her I am gonna need private lesson for now on so this will not happen again.

I have asked my mom should I get a new trainer and she said, no not for a single mistake.

THIS will not happen again.

If she even saw you for a second, she should have seen that the martingale is incorrect. The fact that you were in a lesson blows my mind. Even if she was paying more attention to the other girl, she must have seen you at least a little. Between this and your last thread, I'd suggest finding a new teacher- this one doesn't know her stuff.

No one is being rude, here...just asking honest questions, and making observations. If you don't want to find a different trainer, that's fine, but I would certainly do the individual lessons, as when one is taking a lesson, whether group or indi, the trainer should have a trained enough eye to notice what's going on around him/her, regardless of where their attetion is focused at a certain point in time; that she didn't seem to pay any attention to you at that lesson, would concern me, and make me just a bit mad, if I was taking a lesson and paying for it; you should always get SOME individual attention, even in a group...that's why it's a LESSON!!!

I agree,
That is why I feel a private lesson is what I need to do so I get my moneys worth.
I never asked if I need to find a new trainer ;)


The trainer was needing more time with her since the horse needed some riding by the trainer herself.

I dont wanna find a new trainer I do agree but my mom has said, diffrerently. IF i felt she was doing something id leave her thats why I left all my other trainers.

The progress never happend I am achieving by being wtih this trainer I am doing more shes showing me how to do stuff she gets on the horse and shows me she does stuff to help.

NOT what my other trainers never did. They always did the same thing so I never goaled anything.

Anyways thanks moms2pride would u mind locking this thread.
