After 7 years off, a traumatic brain injury, balance issues, and several months thinking I was never going to do anything other than trot around in circles......there is hope. New barn, new trainer, new horse....new me!!!!
Thanks everyone! About 2 minutes after these videos I was sitting on Moose just crying. It was the most wonderful feeling in the world. I definitely know I have a LONG way to go before I look decent, let alone good, but even 2 months ago I was having a hard time riding outside at all, and also keeping my balance at the trot. This was only my 6th lesson with my new trainer and riding Moose. We just moved there 3 weeks ago. I most definitely welcome constructive criticism, however PLEASE remember what issues I have with my balance and my brain. I will listen to anything and everything, and do my best to make everyone proud!!!!
I know, lol. I'm just the type of person that doesn't want to do something unless they can do it well. BTW, I didn't mention that the first video where I'm cantering to the right is actually my first time cantering that direction since before the accident. Most of my brain and balance problems have caused me serious issues with going to the right, but I was determined to do it. It was only my 2nd time going to the left, but I definitely feel more comfortable going that direction.
I think you look great!!! See, we told you that you could do it. ;p You look much more comfortable on that horse than you did on the one in your last vids. You are doing so well, just keep up the good work. I agree that it is so great to hear stories and see the result of someone who is determined enough to overcome their obstacles and do so well. KEEP IT UP!! :)
