Countryryder, I am glad that everything is coming back together for you!
Yesterday I had a riding lesson. It felt so good to be back on a horse, but today I'm sure stiff!
Right now my instructor is working with me on basics because I have never had lessons before. I have a good seat (which she comments on every time) but I have to work on not just riding but actually riding.
And you probably know what I mean by that!
I am also learning how to properly lunge a horse. She is teaching me how to use side reins for correct top-line work.
In riding I have to work on not dropping my left shoulder, and not tilting my head to the left. I do this while circling in both directions. She also had me working on my posting to the correct diagonal.
She asked me what my goals are as far as riding goes so I mentioned that I have been interested in cross-country jumping. They are just starting to set up a CC course so she took me out to see it.
Then after unsaddling we went out and saw their three babies! She has an Andalusian stallion. The foals are so cute! Especially the little Arabian cross filly!
