I like the idea of documenting. I try to have someone video every one of my lessons so I can see what my trainer sees and know what to work on in the next lesson :)
Everyone goes through it! But it helps to look back at how far you've come! Maybe document your progress with photos or diary entries so it's really visible! You'll get there!
Hey Megan, all riders pass through difficulties. Sometimes you feel like you're not improving your technique any longer, but don't give up it'll get better :)
