Riding Instructor Problems
I am a teenager and not the most confident person. About a year ago my parents paid for me to have lessons, these lasted for about 8 months. I enjoyed them and learned a good deal but wouldn't go back to the same barn for certain reasons.
I am having trouble finding a place reasonably close that teaches western riding, which is weird considering my location. Several years ago I volunteered at a therapeutic riding center. One of the instructors there runs a barn that has western lessons. The instructor was good with the horses and it seems like a quality establishment. So I am considering taking lessons there. My problem is that she kind of scared me. I'm not sure why, everyone else loved her but I found her intimidating. It may not be that way now and who knows if I got to know her better it might not be like that.
So should I suck it up and take lessons there even though she scares me or should I keep looking for a different barn.
