The following list of questions I took from a book by Jill Hassler-Scoop, who proposes that answering these questions will benefit you after lessons, shows, and clinics. I can see that there would be a lot of benefit to this.
|Chente was so committed to his nap that I actually gave him the day off|
- What made you decide to attend the event?
- What did you expect to gain from this event and did you get it?
- What points or experiences do you want to be certain to remember?
- Did you disagree with any of the points or things you saw?
- What points from the experience would you like to learn more about?
- What points do you feel you will want to experiment with in your own teaching and how might you do it?
- How did the event spark your own creative thinking?
- Was the material presented in an open way that encouraged discussion and creativity?
- Was the information presented in an objective, even handed fashion?
- In general, did you feel positive about the information and procedures?
- What was the highlight of the event for you?
- Any last thoughts on what could have been different or better?
- What are the three most important points from this experience?
What do you think? Do any of these questions make sense to systematically apply to your own lessons/clinics/shows/rides? Is there a question that really should be here that isn't?

I'm really dedicated to my naps and no one lets me get out of work :(ReplyDelete
Hahaha when I first read this comment I forgot I'd put that photo in the post and I was SO CONFUSED. Then I remembered.Delete
Definitely having similar dissecting thoughts as I take lessons with new people.ReplyDelete
:) I know so much of this decision is riding on your gut but I'm definitely hoping you write about why you settle on a trainer when you eventually do.Delete
This is a great tool! Bookmarked! :)ReplyDelete
:D Fabulous! I hope you find it useful in the future!Delete
I have yet to go eventing, but these points I think can apply to so many of life's pursuits. Even maybe the "mandatory" ones (like school). I like this list of questions a lot.ReplyDelete
Omg that pony. Also I like the questions. Definitely a good way to be more thoughtful about each individual experience.ReplyDelete
I think it's so important to really integrate things - especially because my budget is limited and I need to maximize what I get from things in order to better serve my clients and horses.Delete
Those questions are great!ReplyDelete
Aren't they fabulous?Delete
