    Yay lessons!

    So this is my second week of lessons. And last week I rode alexa, who is a top level dressage horse. But what I really wanted to do (at least for now) is ride hunt seat and do some jumping, so yesterday Susan put me on Charlie.


    Gorgeous! I think I'm in love! He is a dark bay, and he's super huuuuuge. He's like 17 hands, no joke. Well... Maybe not quite that, but anyway, he's big. He's 1/8 draft and the rest thoroughbred I think. And he's 9 I think she said. Anyway, I did some circles, and then she let me jump, and I was only jumping like six inches to a foot, but he was like. Dude. I'm a top eventer. JUMP ME. So she laughed and said it looked like we would have to go bigger or he wouldn't take it seriously. So she put me up to 3 feet. My first time EVER jumping. It was awesome. And she said next time we'll go higher. EEP! Yay though! Anyway, he's a sweetie. Then I did my hunt seat eq. And she said I look awesome. I really struggle with keeping my hands closed though, which is probably a western thing. She said other than that she would never know that I hadn't had lessons before. YAY! Thanks to all you guys! Lol. Anyway, just wanted to share, cause it was super fun. And, if charlie disappears from their stable, it wasn't me. *sneaky eyes* ha.

    3 feet on your first time jumping sounds a little sketchy.

    Cheply -- that's what I thought! It was terrifying at first, actually... but then I started to love it...... I felt like I was flying! Love Love Love it!

    Now I've switched trainers... the first one was more dressage oriented, and though I'd love to learn a little dressage, since I think it's beautiful and amazing, I also needed just some eq. Lessons and then I had a hunter hack class at state. So anyway, I've switched trainers, and my new one says that the first trainer shouldn't have put me up so high, but rather should have put me on a different horse that would jump something lower. I really don't know anything about it, or I didn't at the time, so I didn't want to say anything and come out sounding really stupid. So I just jumped it ha.
