My third horseback riding lesson and I’m hooked on horses! Between Sam and Charlie, I can’t choose between them although I will say that even though Sam is bigger, I think he’s a bit easier to ride because he’s, dare I say it?, not as energetic as Charlie. Charlie, on the other hand, has a faster gait so I have to keep my balance more in check, but that’s how you learn to ride, right?
I likened it to gymnastics at my last lesson because it’s all about balance in the saddle. I am learning to ride English which means there’s no horn to hold onto on the saddle. In most movies, I saw the horn and thought of it as a safety handle to keep me in the saddle. Guess that’s not going to happen for me. LOL
Oh, so much to learn and to experience! Sigh…and big, wide grin.
So grateful for the healing of horses!
Enjoy your day dear friends! Anyone else horseback riding?
