I had the privilege of having three lessons with Joan this spring when she was in my area. Having not even met her in person, and not being a very confident rider, I was a little apprehensive, but she came highly recommended by a friend. I have a pretty green horse who is new to me, and I was feeling a bit out of my element. Joan asked all the right questions to make me comfortable and completely met us where we were at. She was able to quickly identify some specific areas needing work on my part, and she was right on the mark! Her feedback was constructive and very helpful and we had some solid progression from one lesson to the next. Weeks later, I find myself still thinking of tips Joan gave me to work on. I have already signed up for some virtual lessons and can’t wait for them to start!
