Reflections of a freelance riding coach

As 2018 ran out of racetrack, I reflected on what I love about being a freelance riding coach.
1. The barn aisle conversations about riding, family and life.
2. I love driving! A transition window to consider my lesson plan, the unique personality of the horse and rider and flip through my mental Rolodex of solutions to their puzzles
3. Giving riders undivided attention – leaving cell phone and distractions in the parking lot
4. I’m more inclined, as years go by, to meet riders in their goals rather than fit them into mine
