As the year runs out of racetrack, I reflect on what I love about being a freelance riding coach.
- The barn aisle conversations about riding, family and life.
- 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
- Giving riders undivided attention – leaving cell phone and distractions in the parking lot
- I’m more inclined, as years go by, to meet riders in their goals rather than fit them into mine
