I'm new to horse riding and horses. I'm slowly learning how to ride from my best friend (glad she has the patience to teach me) and the other day whilst on the lunge on my horse Seoul she decided to push me and try out her trot.
At first I was apprehensive and didnt want to spoil a really good ride, but once Seoul moved out and got into the trot I realised it wasn't as bad as I was thinking it would be.
I'm very proud of Seoul and myself, even if we only did half a circle of trot.
But to add more onto this story today (1/9/12) we did more trot work on the lunge together, stop and starting to get me used to it once again.
It took a little bit for Seoul to get into it as she was reading me and knowing how nervous I was again, but eventually we got there and did it for a little while.
I did however have trouble with my right leg/foot slipping from the stirrups at times, (seoul is a very up and down moving horse in her trot).
This is all my first time at trot work and even though some may think of it as a small feat, I'm really proud of Seoul and I.. and Chelle for knowing I can do more than I thought I could.
And I wanted to share this all with you.
So thank you for taking the time to read this little post. ^_^
