I have been having some difficulty lately with two trainers. My dressage trainer herself has issues with this too. The only difference is that she has two in the same discipline, I have two in different disciplines (dressage and jumping).
Sometimes I wonder if she is sad about me doing bothe and not be a primary dressage rider. Dressage will always be in my life and I hope to always ride dressage, but I also like to get the adrenaline pumping and fly a little. Not to mention cross training helps build musles and more confidence. So it's a dilemma.
The two trainers sometimes overlap in training and support each other and other times they are complete opposites. I want them both, but feel like I need to start hiding the other to make it a happy smoother place. I don't want to give up one for the other and I really shouldn't. I feel like I am in a phase right now where I am starting to find my own style of riding and want to explore other disciplines, but not at the sake of losing a wonderful best friend trainer or the opportunity to be something more. I don't know until I try it to say i don't like it, and right now I like jumping and I love dressage. So in this moment of thought, I sit trying to find the solution to make everyone happy and work together to a common goal without losing anybody.
