Regardless if she failed or not, going through the course will make her a much better rider when she is with you.

Plus she can always go back and just retake the riding test if she passed the written for like half the price... at least thats what they do in my program.

Since they are calling for a possible snowstorm later this weekend they had condensed the course into four hours on Friday evening and 12 hours on Saturday. She said she felt rushed and couldn't get the riding exercises down before they would move on to the next one.

She was the only woman in the class.

Did I push too hard? Is this not the place to learn to ride? I don't know because I never took it (shame on me). I got some basic proficiency in a farm field and then took rode through the cones at the DMV.
