My 12 yr. Old daughter has really been after me to ride my green perch/TB gelding, Cody lately. There is a dressage rally (Pony Club) coming up and she can ride a walk/trot test so we figured we'd let her give it a shot as he's a pretty calm, sensible guy. Today they rode in his first lesson and they did really well! Kelly is a calm, gutsy little rider and I was very proud of both of them! He was a little wide-eyed at all that was going on around him, plus it was a cool day so he felt good but other than a few head shakes and some side-passes on "spooky sides" of the arena, he trucked around with more energy than usual!
