Later, we tried a joint lesson with the previous natural instructor and 'Tech' too was posting within minutes and met with the same successes as Lil' Miss. This time, while they shared the tiny circle pen, Mom was getting a sore throat just watching. The heat mixed with heavy manure/ammonia smell made it really uncomfortable and especially challenging to glean any 'second-hand' instruction, especially with more than one rider involved at a time. This day's instruction method was confusing for our riders and at the confirmation of even larger group lessons of a similar style in the future, our youngsters acknowledged it was not the approach for them. Once again, we realized it was not the best fit for us.
We are happy to have several experiences and are sure we'll appreciate the blessing of the right fit, when the Lord opens the door. In the interim, we keep eagerly devouring all kinds of reading and viewing material, learning on our own, with Hannah, and with those He brings our way.
The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way. Psalms 37:23
