When any rider makes a mistake, you don't scream at them. You tell us what we are doing wrong and help us fix our mistake...
Just the sight of you in the ring with me gave me the confidence to get over the rest of the jumps. You have a style of instructing that is special.

I have seen many instructors giving kids lessons that just don't get into it. You really explain things so well...
I have to say AGAIN that it is wonderful that you can read the horse as well as you do...
