Longer down to the ground, makes some nervous, yes. Just breathe & relax and concentrate on your riding, nothing is going to happen. A little tidbit of inspiration, my horse is 16HH. The other day, I asked my granddaughter if she wanted to ride with me, she said "YES!" Was just me & her & the horse, she stayed out of the way when I tacked up & waited on the mounting block while I lead him in the arena. I got on & then scooped her up. She put her hands on the reins & I put my hands over top of hers, we practised turning and stopping for a bit. Then we trotted and then cantered, she wasn't nervous, she wanted me to get off so she could ride by herself! By the way, she is 1 1/2 yrs old, Indy is 16HH, if she can do it, you can too!
