Excited for riding lessons!

All my life I have been a horse lover and have never been able to take horse-back-riding lessons. Now I will be soon taking horse-back-riding lessons, and I am SOOO excited! I have never had a horse, but would love to in the future! I am sooo excited!!!

Thanks! Yes but only a little. I have gone on trail rides on family vacations and stuff like that, but ever since I saw a horse for the first time, I fell in love with them :) :) :) I will be starting off with probably Western... but later I would probably like to learn English too :)

Have fun! I see you are also from Az, the weather sure is lovely... lol. Horses are AMAZING! With the right instructor, you will progress far. Just remember to have fun, because you are doing this because you want to, not because you have to! Look forward to hearing how your lesson went!

I recommend starting English first. It's MUCH easier for an English rider to go Western than the other way around.

Good luck!

That is true, but for most beginning riders, the Western saddle is much easier to stay on and more comfortable. It also feels more secure, IMO.

Enjoy! Lessons with the good instructor are lots of fun. Besides it's very good for the rider both - physically and mentally. Just be ready to be sore for the first couple weeks.
