So my beautiful mare, Charm, is ready for her first ride. I have ground driven her till perfection and she responds to voice command and have done everything I could to prepare her. I will be working with Charm with weight in the stirrups yet because I feel she needs to still get used to that weight.
My question is what should I expect on the first ride since that will be our next step (yah!) and what should I consider teaching her on that first ride. I know everyone trains differently but I'm just wondering what to expect.
Just to make sure you all understand that I have been helping with the training of green horses for a couple of years now but I have never done the whole first ride thing. I am working with my instructor with my horse as well cause I feel more comfortable with someone else watching and helping me through my first green horse.
