My husband's first ride!

Both my instructor and I were so impressed with how well my husband did for his first lesson!!!!!! He was actually so relaxed he was able to trot just after a few mins. I think it helped that Chip, the horse he was riding is super laid back. After the lesson he admitted that I could get him out on a trail ride or two.. So I am SUPER happy. Now I am going to have to go shoot in a gun match this weekend. But it's really cool that we're willing to try each other's hobbies.

Wow. Your hubby looks great on that horse. I wish the men in my family would sit like that!

So, now you take up shooting and the two of you can go in western shooting and eventing, period shooting with the horses. Too cool!

I am so proud of him!!!

I don't know about the western shooting. I'm not overly thrilled about the match this weekend because I havent shot in a really long time, and I know I'll be super bad, and I KNOW there will be TONS of guys there. So, I'll be SUPER self conscious. But, that was the deal, and this match is a benefit match, so it's for a good cause.

It'll be all good; just wait and see. Remember consistency and breathing and then when you're just about ready to squeeze remember it's for the cause and for your relationship so if you shoot in a 10" circle, who really cares?

That is great; kudos to him! :) He looks like he's doing well on that horse, he looks happy too!

Ride more, worry less.

Wow, he looks really good!

Is it his first time on a horse ever??

He looks like a natural. :)
