I picked up riding just a few years ago, and happened to find a barn in Oxford and start taking lessons with the trainer from Morocco. He is an incredible rider and has ridden in France when he was young. He is rather a strict teacher, but the barn is very laid-back, and it turned out to be a perfect match for me. He is also very funny and not always “politically correct”, but his lesson is always great and give me articulate advice – but what I remember most is that “if you ride a horse, you will fall someday. If you do not want to fall, stay home and watch TV on a couch” Sure enough, I fell few times and it was not always pretty – actually quite painful – but those words always come back to me at the worst moment, and always makes me smile.
