Hah... I fell off

It was only my third lesson yesterday, and I was posting along pretty well, but I forgot to tap the reigns to keep his head up, (left right loosen stuff) and he tripped. xD lol I fell, yay. Landed on my butt, (really only half of it, didn't hit my tailbone or anything), nothing was hurt... Except I had to spit out some dirt that so nicely landed in my mouth, yum! :P I got right back on to trot again. The problem was the tapping and I hadn't had my knees tight, but I was riding the short horse that day so It wasn't so bad. I could hardly breathe at first just because it happened so fast, but apparently I did the right thing. She said, "good job letting go of those reigns," and I'm thinking, "I'm glad I did the right thing cause I sure wasn't thinking at that point." xD My butt's kinda sore, but I feel kinda proud in a weird way. I kept going, the first is the worst (unless the second leaves you with an injury or something O_O), and it's like my horse has "initiated" me into the world of horseback riding. I have officially fallen off my horse. ^__^ Go, me!

Congrats on your dirt snack!!!!! Glad it was all ok!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
