Wink Lesson II : The Dreaded Trot

You guys! My trot was so gross lol :P I posted a video! This time I had my heavy duty tripod handy to keep things looking good.

This isn't in the riding critique section because honestly it's only my 2nd time riding a horse, and my first time riding in trot! So its going to be bad I already know so I decided to spare myself the grief by not posting it in the critique section...

Enjoy! Oh, and sorry it was pretty breezy out today!

Thanks :) And yes it has been a pretty day. I wish I had my first lesson but my boyfriend accidentally deleted it. It wasn't as well-made though. Very shaky, windy, and chatty. I am hoping to document every lesson lol but only if weather permits. I have lessons around 4x a month right now so hopefully every sunday will be as gorgeous as this one was :) at least for the summer time.

My lesson I think went alright too I was laughing a lot of the time because it was a bumpy ride and my butt is bouncy enough already

Good job! I almost fell off when I trotted for the first time and this was on the smoothest trotting school horse ever. =P So I thought you did wonderfully.

Very nice for just a 2nd lesson. And you try to post too, which is great (took me forever to figure out how to do it ).

What breed Abby is? TB?
