Today was my first full Saturday teaching lessons at LoneStar Riding Academy and I had a blast! I have taught lessons during the week and one or so lessons on a Saturday here or there, but not having a full morning.
Today I had my first beginner group lesson for a mom and her two kids. The family won two gift certificates that I donated. I was sure what to expect or how successful I was going to be with this lesson, but all 3 will be returning for more lessons.
My second lesson today was a 12 year old girl that has had some bad exeriences wit
h horses and trainers. Today was the second lesson for her and she had a great lesson, trotting
Milan around in the arena off the lunge line. She trotted circles and weaving in and out of the cones and just building her confidence back in the saddle. She is not quite ready to lope yet but she will be in the next few weeks.
I will be at a barrel race next weekend but Heidi of LoneStar Riding Academy will be taking my beginner students for the week so that they don’t miss any lessons. I am hoping that in the next few weeks I will be booked all day on Saturdays but for now things are moving along perfectly!
