Our 3rd Lesson Today


Well we are going for our third lesson today. Last week didn't go as well as planned. Partly my fault because I wasn't pushing him but also he wasn't being very co-opperative (I don't blame him first time with other horses for a while)

Jalah and I did an exersize to try and get my mind off the people around me. There was this little girl watching me ride from over the fence. While I was doing a jumping course. At first I didn't noticed her and we cleared the course easily. Then when I took him for the second round and saw her we knocked a cross bar and a mini straight bar. All because I was worried about screwing up in front of this girl. Chances are she wouldn't even know that I screwed up.

Then we had another go, for the first jump I was all tense and if I didn't have a good horse like Chinga we would of:
A. Stopped in front of the jump.
B. Crashed into the jump.
C. Ran out on the jump.

But he cleared it nicly, with me well being there somewhere along the lines. Then we came to the next jump. I thought to myself "Alright Maddie its just a jump, we have cleared this jump many times he loves jumping it". And what happens? I finish the course and forget the girl is there.

We decided to do it one more time and did it at a canter before finishing off. So hopefully today at our lesson I will have a co-opperative horse and I will have MY mind on the jump!

Wish us luck!

Riding lessons are about you and your horse. The coach is there for you - that is what you are paying them for. Your education.

It isn't about impressing others who are with you - it is about you becomming a better rider each time you are in that saddle, progressing and becoming that riding your horse deserves.

Good for you for getting through it! Ride on!

Well here is how our lesson went. We arrived at our lesson slightly later today and all the other studants had arrived. I gave him a quick groom because he had already had one and then saddled up. Unlike last time he stood correctly for me!

Then we started walking around, we got to lead. He went very well and didn't mind Toshonie much. Then we trotted. We started at the front, ended at the back so then I had to slow him down and collect him.

Then we did mini contests. We won 2 out of 3 events in individuals, by cantering most of the courses. The courses this week were alot harder but we still went well. Then we won all three in team events thanks to my brilliant peg pick up.

Overall a better lesson and we both had lots of fun!
