It’s been at least a decade since I taught a riding lesson and only then did I ever teach up-down lessons to super litte kids, but yesterday I did my best to give my friend, a former saddle seat rider, a lesson in basic dressage on my pony who she is half-leasing. I discovered two things: 1) It turns out I can really ramble on about dressage even when I can only ride it at a largely rudimentary level myself and, 2) Teaching dressage is hard, which really I already knew, but this just reenforced. Once again, I have to give mad props to all the instructors and trainers out there!
