I'm a total beginner rider, and have only had two western lessons. One was 1/2 hour, and the last one was a little over an hour. On my first lesson, I had a lot of fun. I felt comfortable, and loved the horse that I was on. I was a little afraid of the fact that the horse is a 9 year old, but he seemed mellow and sweet. I felt confident in handling the horse.
When I found out that I would be riding the same horse for my next lesson, I was excited. We were just walking, working on turning and stuff. The instructor asked us if we wanted to trot, and so we were doing that for a few minutes. She showed us how to post, but really I have no clue how you can do that...I was bouncing up and down so much..Any tips for that?
