My first lesson!

Hey,

Today I had my first riding lesson. It was the first time I've ever even been on a horse. I rode an adorable 4 year old quarter horse named Lovey. She was sooo sweet and calm. I spent about half of the lesson learning about grooming and safety and the rest riding.
I have another lesson in about a week. I had alot of fun!

I have a few pictures that my mom took, she's not exactly the best photographer.

1111 Aqua,

So glad you enjoyed your lesson! Are you going to continue taking lessons for awhile? Are you thinking about buying a horse?

Beware - - it's quite addicting!!

Definitely get as many lessons as you can. There's always something new to learn with horses, and an instructor can make sure that you're really good at the fundamentals, which will translate into you being a much better rider overall! At my stables, the instructors are particularly keen on lots of transition work (changing gaits - walk/trot, trot/canter, walk/canter and back down again) to keep the riders engaged and the horses responsive.

I'm glad you enjoyed your lesson I'm afraid you'll be totally hooked now - after my first lesson, I didn't stop beaming for a week, and I was so lucky that I had another one just two days later or I don't know what I would have done!

Wonderful pics! I'm so glad you enjoyed riding! It's VERY addicting lol. I think you should take lessons for as long as possible before buying. There is so much to learn! You'll love your lessons and be so greatful for having them later in life!

I am glad you are enjoyin ridin. Just please don't rush into buyin a horse, gain as much experience and knowledge as you can then buy a horse.. Of course its up to you, but that's my advice to you.

Glad you enjoy riding! The first lesson tends to be one of the hardest.

You'll get the hang of it before too long and then you don't even have to think before you do things, it just comes naturally!

Good luck and have fun!

I agree with Brandon. In fact, I was 30 years old before I actually bought my own horse. My whole life, I allways rode my friends' horses. Cheaper that way, too!

I'm 41 now and I'm STILL learning things! It's never-ending!

Be patient and learn, learn, learn!!!

Lol glad you enjoyed your first lesson!!! And like Harley's mom and Brandon said, it would be better for you to learn as much as you possibly can, before thinking about buying a horse.
But good luck with your lessons!!!
