I'm a bit concerned because I am hearing you say that you're nervous and excited about riding your horse. Your horse is going to pick up your nerves and excitement and it could lead to a nervous, excitable horse.
I would strongly suggest that you enlist the help of a professional trainer to help get him started in a relaxed, confident manner...for his sake AND yours!

Oh I know he can pick up on it and I don't plan on getting on tomorrow...I'm thinking of months down the road. I was just doing research and saw some videos of first rides and it's so exciting and nerve wracking. Once I have collected my thoughts and what not, it wont be so bad, I just realized that after all this time, we are so close to the next big step. I am very careful and refuse to get hurt, therefore I do a lot of research and ideas I can find. Thanks for your post though!

You can do it, everyone gets nervous even professionals. I've stated lots and lots of horses and the first ride still makes me nervous. I can almost (99%) garuntee you that after the first couple of times you are on his back that the nerves will fade ALOT! Just take er' easy. Like you already said you will do! Trust in yourself and you WILL be able to do it!!

That's great news. Don't worry, you'll do great. Getting on for the first ride is always a little nerve racking no matter how much experience you have. It is just a matter of swallowing the fear and just climbing up. :) He will do great, especially with the amount of groundwork that has been done. It's okay to be nervous just don't let it overwhelm you. If you have to just step away for a minute and take a deep breath, then do it. Just keep smiling and have fun.
