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.
