Hello Megan,

In the United States students are real customers.
They are supported from A to Z, all the logistics of their horses is managed by the coaches.
They come to the stables to take their lessons and they don’t need to take care of anything else.
The service provided by the coaches is much more complete than in France. They are therefore much less autonomous, since they do not (generally) manage anything at all.
In the United States the educational system focuses on the rider, they are the coaches. Most often the horses are already trained and qualified, so the coaches focus on the student.
He is not taught how to teach his horse either.
See you soon!

Alexandra
