Good luck Carla!!  I hope you find a good instructor -- someone on the
ground is absolutely necessary when you're learning new stuff (good thing
too...keeps me in business <bg>) and even when you're more experienced and
still learning new stuff!  I'll be returning to lessons myself when I get
Billy to a certain level of training.  There are things I would like to
learn to do that I haven't done well yet -- I haven't before had a horse
that had the conformation and gaits to go to that level and be able to do
the movements well...and I'm doing it for fun, certainly NOT because I want
to wear a top hat and tails and dance around an arena for 6 minutes. ;-)  I
want Billy to do 100 miles AND canter pirouettes and two tempi
changes...just for fun!!  

It starts with learning to sit correctly and getting the horse to move in a
light, responsive self carriage -- and this is good -- and if that's all
you want to take lessons for, that's okay too...but it doesn't have to stop
*there* if you don't want it to! ;-)
