Lightbulb Let's see your old beginner photos!

I would love to see everyone's photos from when they first started riding (if you have any). Main reason being because I want to see if everyone else had as bad a position as I did (long reins, spread arms, heels forward, leaning back too much)

.. and it might be a giggle :3

Here are mine. I couldn't find any of my older ones but this will work. I will say that the white horse is completely blind so I must of been a good enough rider to be put on a blind horse. Oh and I never would wear jeans so I road in sweats all the time.

AWW You guys were cute though, mind you I was 14 when I had my first lesson!

I've never ridden a blind horse, do you notice a difference?

I never did notice a difference when I was riding him, he was just like other horses just slower. We never took him on trail rides though he was strictly an arena horse.

All my beginner pictures were taken on real cameras and printed off in like 1994. I promise you though, I was an adorable little one year old goober with my shnazy baby stirrups riding in front of my mom and whoever else lol.

I didn't officially start lessons until I was four.

I'll have to look and see if I can get any good pictures of me (pictures of pictures) and post them. I know there's a picture of me saddling a shetland when I was 4 and I came up to the base of her shoulder lol.

I'll have to dig them up tomorrow and see.

Wow HalleysCommet you improved loads in such little time!
I'm still learning, but I'll have to post my beginner photo on my first ride, It was terrible.

I'll do that tomorrow when I get on my computer haha

Foreversunrider; I wish I started at a young age, I feel like because I started later, I'll never be as good a rider as some.

But yes do show us!
