My first lesson!

Had my first lesson yesterday & is was AWSOME! My instructor told me I was doing very good at correcting myself on my position & keeping my shoulders back. She said when I start to get nervous My feet start to go back & my arms get tense & those we will work on. I even got brave enough to do some trotting. I felt like I was on cloud 9! Today my iner thighs are killing me, but I can't wait for next week to do it again!

You know what helps when you get tense? Breathing! It's way harder to tense up if you're breathing properly, so always be conscious of your breathing, and make sure you're not holding your breath ever (like EVERYTHING else, easier said than done)

I enjoy taking lessons soooo much! I'm glad you enjoyed your first. It is a real confidence builder!

As you go along in your lessons, you will learn that as a beginner, multitasking is difficult. Hands have to do this, feet have to do this, legs have to do that, oh wait! Don't look down! Keep the elbows tucked! Drop the hands! Chin up! Breathe, breathe, breathe!!!!!

It can be totally overwhelming. It was for me. My instructor had no mercy. Still doesn't. I recommend learning a cadence, or a short song. My instructor likes row, row, row your boat, and she'll sing it as she rides, especially going over jumps. You have to breathe in order to speak/sing, so it helps with keeping consistent breathing and rhythm. It's really helpful when learning to keep your trot to a specific rhythm.

I actually can't remember what I used to sing during my lessons, but I am sure I'll remember it next time I am trotting circles.
