Well I finally rode my horse! I have two pictures from my cell phone but I cannot seem to copy and paste them inot this post...technically challeneged person here.
I am not even sure I can get them into one of my albums.
He was such a good boy! He halted when asked and with a little work he did listen to my leg.
I do not own a saddle at this time so will have to think about that as my next big purchase after the winter blanket. Opps I forgot his measurements and need to get that done soon.
He really did impress me! I brought one of the mounting blocks into the round pen and had him stand there next to it for some time. When I saw the barn owners son was coming I went ahead and mounted. I wanted to make sure someone was nearby just in case.
I only rode for about 15-20 minutes walking in the round pen and changing direction. Walk halt walk halt.
He was reall good and willing to try and listen. So I will ride every now and then after our lounge work. I can not afford to ride in a lesson everyday and since I have not ridden regularly for a while I really need to get my own legs used to being on a horse...
There is a woman I know that has a saddle for sale but I think it is really fancy and expensive. I would be fine with a not so fancy saddle. So I will see what else is around. I do know that the saddle she has that is not forsale fits my horse pretty good. We tried it on him the other day.
So the begining of another chapter...
