So i went to my friends jumping lesson yesterday.
Her lesson was weirdly short tho???
We drove an HOUR to the barn. Showed up at 5:20, the lesson was scheduled for 5:30. Started ridding about 5:35. She warmed up on the flat, jump a cross rail a few times, then did a line of trot poles a cross rail and a small vertical twice. She rode the first line well but the had a long distance due to the vertical being too close to the cross. Fixed it and second time was PERFECT. then her trainer was like “ok that was good lets call it a day.” It was 6:30. that meant her lesson was barley a half an hour. She pays $40 for what is supposed to be an hour lesson.
Her trainer explained that because she jumped the line so well, they should end on it because it was only going to get worse after that.
i get that but the lessons r supposed to be an hour and my friend has a big show in a few weeks, and she can only ride once a week. Should she be upset? her last 2 lessons were only about 45 minutes as well.
