oh the horror of lessons you cant watch :)
my mom is going for her second lesson today :p
the first horror thing is that i can't be there to watch her :( but to make things even more um... how shall i say .. interesting, my youngest sister (15 yo) is going with her and having her first lesson.
now i say this is interesting because said sister refuses to ride horses after an accident afew years ago that was caused by my sister and cousin. short answer STUPIDITY!!!!
the good thing is she was not hurt the bad thing is she was thrown from the horse. she did not get back on that horse but did switch horses with someone else and rode the other one home. since then she has only worked with the horses from the ground and grooming them is her favorite thing. she used to be fearless before this accident and riding bareback and messing around in saddle was her favorite thing...
also note after the accident she lost a lot of confidence in herself. she started to blame herself quickly when things would go wrong and so forth.
so to kinda slap that in the but before it gets to bad momma bear has said she must get lessons with her :P
so hopefully after this lesson on a horse she doesn't know will help her regain some confidence and maybe just maybe i will have 2 riding buddies instead of one :)
but fingers crossed and everyone pray that my sister has a good experience today :)
