I have a confession to make: I am addicted to taking lessons. I know, I know I need to be a more independent rider who can think for herself, solve her own problems, and my trainer isn’t always going to be there. But I just love taking lessons. During a lesson I actually feel like I am accomplishing something and improving both myself and my horse whereas when I ride alone (especially doing flatwork) I feel like my horse and I are regressing and the ride often ends up in fits of frustration for both human and equine. Oh and another thing – I think lessons are just so much fun.
