    Lessons! Yay!

    So I have actually never posted in here before haha. But this year I started riding Hunt Seat English and it was SO hard. Mostly because I had no lessons, no instructor, no anything but myself and you guys and books. Anyway, it's been tough, but like a week before our big show, I just.... I don't know, found the balance or something. I could ride English! It was awesome, and we took Reserve Champ. At the show. But, I still felt like I didn't know anything about it, or if I ever had to ride another horse, a different horse, then I wouldn't be balanced anymore. So my mom has been watching me struggle with this, and I've been complaining to her, and one day I told her that I wanted to learn about Dressage, just to learn it. And I've heard that learning even a little about dressage helps with everything about english. So...

    My mom is buying me 8 Dressage lessons for my birthday.

    Oh my gosh! I'm so excited about this. It's a private lesson, so I'll get lots of one on one time with the trainer. And I get to ride their horses until I feel like I'm ready to bring my own to school! AND, if I want to continue with it, my mom said that she'll keep paying for them until basketball starts, in which case it's winter and I won't have the time to anyway. BUT. YAY! I'm so excited! What have been your guys' experience with lessons? What do you like best about dressage? I think it's beautiful. Just amazing.

    Anyway, just wondering what you guys had to say, and just SO SO SO excited that I had to share. HA.

    That's great! I would be really excited about those lessons, too! Lessons really help (in my opinion) because you have a pair of educated eyes on the ground that can tell you what you're doing wrong and how to make it better. I agree- dressage is really beautiful and it's amazing to learn :). For the first time- this summer- I rode a 24-year-old Arabian gelding who is an AMAZING dressage schoolmaster. I could collect his trot to the point where we were almost trotting in place. Not quite, but close. I can only imagine how amazing it would feel to ride a piaffe. To me, it's more challenging than jumping, in a different way. Do you know when your first lesson is?

    Yeah, my first lesson is September 8th. Yup, I could really use someone to tell me what I'm doing wrong, alright. Thanks for the reply! I'm uber excited haha. =)
