Getting the most out of Dressage lessons

1) Bring your “beginner’s mind”. In other words, have an open mind. Assume the teacher has something important to teach you! Assume the teacher has enough experience and a strong enough background to provide insight into your problems. If you think you have nothing more to learn, then please don’t bother taking lessons. 2) Listen and try to do what you are told. This is closely related to (1), but it involves action. It is not enough to be open-minded, as riders we then have to try to enact the teacher’s instruction and produce a result in the horse 3) Ask questions. If you don’t understand the instruction, ask! That said, ask in appropriate times, for instance during a walk break.
