So today I rode one of the school horses for my lesson. I ride my horse all the time...but today I decided to ride someone else.
So I rode this buckskin qh gelding. I havent ridden in a long time. Now the trainer is going back to using him again. So he's a tad out of shape. So she lunged him first.
As he was trotting around and around...he had this floaty trot going on...so that made me a bit nervous. Then she lunged the horse the other direction and he went back to this normal trot. So that made me feel better.
So then I finally get on and we're walking around a few times. Then we start off by trotting the top half of the arena. I thought he felt a little bouncy. But I was able to figure out his movement...it was all good.
So we did figure eights of the whole arena at the trot.
Then at the end of the lesson,we did some jumping. It was just trotting over 2 cross rails. He was really good going over the jumps. I get a little nervous about jumping..so he made me feel better about it.
This qh is a good boy.
maybe I will ride him again next week or go back to my horse...
