Yay :D

I just wanted to share that I can now stop a horse using my seat instead of my hands

You guys are probably saying right now "Pfft, I learnt how to do that in my first lesson." So, just a bit of history of my riding.

I went to a riding school and they taught us "Kick to go, pull to stop" . When I got my first pony, oh boy...She was not going to take any of that. After eatting the dirt a couple of times, many people helping me out and a VERY patient pony.

I can now stop and turn a horse using my seat with little pressure on the reins.

I was so excited that I could do this I made her stop and go a number of times. Then we went and tried it out in the trails and guess what? IT WORKED!!


Also, I am now not going to that riding school any more. I left last year and I'm 100% sure they now have a better instructor.

And one more time... YAY!
