Ok, my horses are SAINTS!!!!!!!! God how I do love them dearly, and they must love me back after the beating they just took,,,,
I would dearly love to learn English riding.........my horses would dearly love me to figure it out also im sure of that.
So, today I go saddle my lovely Koda,,,,shes very experienced in English riding. Dressage, jumping all that good stuff that goes with it. I would love to show her again. So on goes the WIntec 2000, I itnhk I need a bigger one. On goes the bridle and and then on goes me
I love riding. Sit nice and straight but relaxed, hands in what I THINK is the right position, heels down walk walk walk,,,,niiiiiiiiice ride so far,,,,,,hmmmmmm, we went up a little hill and she walked funny,,,,yup,,,,shes lame. Ok, back to the barn. Stone bruise on her right front foot. Give her some time to heal up, that ok, ill take my other one out. He is not schooled at all, he's just fun,,,but he's also like riding a pumpkin down the road BUMPY,,lol. Heres the issue,,,,THANK GOD no one was watching me ride today, I went down by the water where you can't see over the knoll,,,,
. Walking was a charm, a breeze,,,,eeeeeeeeaaaaasssssyyyyyy, well if im doing it right it is. Lets do a little trot,,,,,,,tried seated trot,,,,,hmmmmmmm a better bra is much needed for that. SOOOOOOOO I did ,,,,lol,,,,, I tried to post,,,it was more like popping im sure it resembled popping corn actualy. GOOD LORD,,,,,stop the poor horse get him turned around. Stand for aminute, we both collect ourselves and we,,or should I say I try aain, he's got the trot down pat,,me on the other hand oh dear,,,,
. Posting,,,,do I do it with my feet and legs or do I use my thighs???? I tried both,,,,neither worked for me,,,,,well, one of the times I did it I think I actualy did it. I can post in my western saddle,,,but NOT in my english....needless to say BOTH of my horses were saints. We stoppped and started several times, its almost like they were very understanding and knew I didnt have a clue. I will be taking lessons soon, just waiiting for the trainer to name a date. ANYONE out there self taught????? Any suggestions,,,,lol,,,,, ill keep trying each day until I get smooth but my horses may not like to see me coming,,,no more than a half hour at a time I guess while I learn
have a sweet day everyone!!!!!
