Riding lessons certainly aren’t for everyone. There is a lot of dedication much like any other sport. Think. Hockey. There is a couple of practices a week, then a game. Riding lessons is much the same. You aren’t required to take more than one lesson per week but riders need to come at least once a week. The more ‘saddle time’ a rider gets the more practice, the better they get.
On the flip side – I absolutely will not discourage riders to try riding a few times. Our sport needs more up and comers and without those, riding will no longer be a sport.
