Lainey Ashker could give George Morris a run for his money when it comes to meme-worthy one-liners. Student Samantha Ensinger put together a montage of Lainey-isms from a recent dressage lesson and we are absolutely rolling with laughter.
Samantha is 16 years old and she’s had Rocko, a 12-year-old Belgian Warmblood cross for about 9 months. They evented at Starter level this summer and hope to move up to Beginner Novice soon.
“I really loved Lainey’s teaching style. She was very honest, while still being extremely encouraging,” Samantha said. “She pushed us both to our best for every second of the ride and made us all laugh a few times with those phrases that flow so naturally from her personality. I look forward to the next time she comes back to Ohio for a clinic. I might be the first in line to ride with her again!”
We love how Lainey kept her student laughing. Lainey said, “Believe it or not I actually had a million more positive things to say about this pair! Must’ve been a long lesson.”
Humor goes a long way when it comes to keeping students engaged in learning. Here are a few more motivating Lainey-isms:
