Default Riding school for the wife--looking for suggestions

My wife it's an ok rider but I am not real good at explaining or showing drills to improve. I would classify my riding style as ugly but effective.

I think if she could get some good training and things to practice she would enjoy riding a lot more. She said she would go and she really wants to get better. Where can I send her? Are there some good basic videos I could go over with her?

Just really looking for some good suggestions so my wife can enjoy riding to the fullest.

Shane Watts does a riding school. I have a friend that did it and really liked it. I might try the intermediate class if they have one near me this year.

I'm a female rider and took the Shane Watts school. It was grueling but well worth the money and pain. Just don't tell her about the pain part. I had already been riding for many years, but still walked away having learned stuff. Shane is very patient and you just can't get mad at him with that awesome accent and all.
