So being with my new riding coach has already taught me a ton, and she said she's realized that I almost never smile when I ride, I'm too focused on the work at hand and when I'm done I just untack brush and leave.
She told me my old coach was trying to move me up into the higher group's level of riding so much that she never really let me have fun with Des, or give her a break when she did something right.
Sooooo! Since my lessons are half the price and twice as long as they used to be I'm taking two a week, she designated one as flat/jumping/work whatever and the other as barels/vaulting/games fun type rides.
The problem is, we have no idea what to play! We're going to play tag today and maybe put the vaulting surcingle on Des after she's all crazied-out and try that but other than that all we've come up with is to try polo, barrels/poles/gymkhana in general and that's about it.
Any ideas what we could do? There's only the two of us on our horses, and we have a huge arena with almost any equipment you could imagine in it, so give us your game ideas!
Thanks in advance!
