    Still going strong

    Evening all,

    As of my previous posts I thought I'd keep updating you with my riding lessons .

    Tonight lesson was good, in-fact it was amazing. We did jumping today .

    Despite being the best out of the team I had trouble with the saddle. The front cushion of the saddle was kept rubbing against the side of my knee. It was so much so that skin came off a bit. I know these sort of things do happen in sporting activities but I now strongly think that saddle makes a huge difference in your riding along with other factors.

    Anyhow, I thoroughly enjoyed my lesson tonight and day by day I am getting confident with my riding .

    Sorry for keeping it short but I am soooooooo tired and soon going to hit bed .

    Glad to hear your lesson went well! Sorry to hear about the saddle. Sadly that does happy sometimes. But you may want to consider investing in a pair of half-chaps, or even full-chaps, if you prefer. This will make a big difference in how much your leg is rubbing against the saddle. I wear half-chaps when I ride and can't imagine riding without them. Although with that said, I used to get huge sores on the sides of my legs from the saddle, even with chaps on. So I guess it all depends. I may have been gripping too much with my leg.

    Hope you feel rested up soon!

    Thanks guys!

    Yes I can't bend my left knee because my trouser/jeans rub against the rubbed skin and it hurts alot. Well this is better then not even being able to walk as that happened initially when I started riding (maybe because I never did it before and it opened up my muscles )

    Definitely I will take some photos as soon as I get a chance. Maybe next week because 1 of the guy is planning to go somewhere for Christmas so he most probably won't come after next week. So will try taking some photos next week.

    Glad to hear your ride went well!!
    As for the rubbing/chafing.... you might want to invest in some breeches that have a lining that protects your thigh. It helps a ton.
