riding lesson today

I'm so excited! I'm going for my riding lesson today - first one this spring. I've taken lessons for 3 years and I'm really looking forward to riding lots this year. I'll probably be riding a Bashkir Curly mare, and she is very energetic and loves to work. You basically just have to think you want to trot and she'll trot. I'll try to post pics of the horse I'm riding later. I'm training my instructors foals in exchange for lessons so that will be fun as well. I'll update how it went after I come back from my lesson.

The lesson went great! I rode a gelding named Mac and he's awesome. He was trotting perfectly for me and we did all kinds of neat things. I'm working on getting him to halt square for me and he's so wonderful to learn on. Next lesson I'm going to gallop on him so that will be a lot of fun!

Here's a picture of him that I found from a while ago. I'll try to get better ones later - didn't have a lot of time to take pictures today.

Humans are like Slinkies. Practically useless, but still fun to push down the stairs.
