Two weeks ago, I was doing this:
Readers of this blog know that I didn't complete my training 2 weeks ago. This picture may help explain why. Can you tell how hot and exhausted I was before we took the test?
I went back the following Wednesday (1 week ago) to complete the work. These pictures are all from my first round of training.
I was surprised by how much I hadn't learned when I went back to complete the training. I was lucky that I got to be part of the class before the test. Even with the 3.5 additional hours of practice, I still wasn't sure I would pass the riding test.
I have told many a student that they just weren't ready to progress on to the next class. I had forgotten how humiliating/crushing it can be to hear that message, even if it's true.
I'm glad I went back to finish. I'm even more glad that I don't have to go back again.
