Beautiful horse!! Looks like fun..... I just have two comments..... don't hold on to the saddle horn.... it takes you off balance..... and wear something with a heel...... I can't express how much that means... getting caught and dragged isn't a fun thing

Hope you have fun again!!

what a cute horse! And you do look like you are having a good time.
:)
Hmm, since everyone gave some valuable advice, I will toss some in too...

I see in the one picture that your hand is high up in the air... try to bring your hand down closer to horses neck.

Thanks! I was having a great time!

I noticed that also when the picture was taken, I made a few
Mistakes, but I am a begginer rider and there is time for
Improvement!
