Day 1 of the clinic went really well. Earl was a blessing, he needed a tune up, yet gave me confidence....PLUS. He is a beauty, so,everyone liked him too!
Tomorrow my mom will join me as she hasn't handled horses in years! Gotta love the woman, 69 yo and willing to try just about anything I throw aT her! She wants to feel more confident around the horses, and wants to ride if we get a second one.
Amazing the change in the horse just over the day. By the end I was able to walk away and have the big guy follow me without the lead....I became the leader!
Quick question all....when we trot, I am allowed to post, I wouldn't be able to sit his trot, it would hurt too much.....but I forget, do I post up with the outside or inside shoulder?
Koolio, I spent the last 13 years in 4,5, and 6 grade, so if you need any ideas I would be willing to help....I know a really great book....hahaha (I wrote it!) that might give you ideas! It's based on brain research.. Anyway, I love the middle aged kids....yes they are silly and at times hormonal(ugh the sixth grade) but they really need a strong support system. They make me laugh, and I love when I see them in the hall and they make the effort to come over and give me a high five.....I know then I made a difference!
Wish me luck tomorrow....time for bed! Hahaha. I didn't sleep good last night (too excited). So I am REALLY tired tonight. Want to get the most out of tomorrow.....wish I had a professional at my disposal ALL the time!!!
Happy trails all! Ride strong!
Your mother at 69 that's the new 59. Now would that mean you may not qualify for the 40 +
. Im 65 well almost, that is the new 55. And if it wasn't for my lack of hair, the grey, gravity effected skin, I could at a push be taken for 54.
And I don't bounce when falling off.
