I've actually been thinking a lot about learning to ride English, lately. The only problem with that is there aren't any reasonably close trainers in the area that I could take lessons from 2-3 times a week.. I have always wanted to learn how to jump *correctly.* I CAN jump, but that doesn't mean it's going to be pretty. I could show you pictures, (if you really wanted to see them) but you'd probably all cringe, lol.
Oh, you should! You don't have to take lessons 2-3 times a week, all you really need is once- at least to just start learning. It's hard to see how everything is from the pictures (not that you asked for a critique, lol!) but you look like you were having a lot of fun :).

Thanks everybody!

I don't know who it was, but yes! We are showing embarrassing riding pictures now!! (well at least I did lol)

Cinder: I love critiques because I learn from them! (as long as they are constructive!!) I was having a lot of fun! I love the feeling of going over a jump on a horse! I don't want to pick up any baaad habits, which was why I said 2-3 times a week (at least for a few weeks).. but, then again, I have y'all to help me, too!

Strength lies within the heart but the strength to trust lies between the horse and his rider.

Won a battle tonight!!! Going to the rodeo Friday!!! Horses, bull riding, and barrel racing chicks! Yessssssss!

My mom told me tonight why we haven't been going to the rodeo the last couple years. I can't remember exactly how it happened, but there was a horse running really fast and somehow it got a rope tangled in its front legs and flipped head first and broke its neck or back.....you could hear the snap in the bleachers and they had to put it down right there.....I completely forgot about that and how it sorta traumatized me. I remember I was sooo upset over it. I hate it when a horse die, it KILLS me inside. I think of its owner, and how awful that is. It's like loosing your best friend, or part of you. You poor your heart and soul into this creature......it makes me sad..... and usually I'm not a sensitive guy and emotions don't get the best of me. But when I see a horse, the this person's companion, die. It hits me hard, but I don't cry pffffff, men don't cry! Haha

Good news!

Have fun at the rodeo, Horse racer!

I have good news, guys. My father has been taking a lot of overtime lately and he says that I can lease in October for sure and maybe November if the weather isn't horrible.

I rode Holly in my lesson today, and I decided I'm going to lease her in October instead of Skippy. She's seven and more difficult to ride, and I think riding her will help me improve a lot. I'll always have a place in my heart for Skippy, though :).

Cool, that's awesome Cinder! Glad everything's going good! That is good news!

And thanks, the rodeo was great! I'm going to be starting western riding lessons soon, so excited! I also figured out what I want to do and my goal is. I want to learn and compete in reining. I love the how responsive the horse is to their rider and how in tune and together they are. How they have to work together and the horse and rider become one. And how small signals make the horse respond and move in a beautiful and majestic way....sends chills down my spine just thinking about doing something that awesome on a horse! I would like to learn how to barrel race, but not competitively, I haven't seen many guys barrel racing......I probably just need to worry about starting lessons first.
