First official ride!

This is the first time I've been on Eve with the saddle on her in the bigger round pen to ride...just a walk for now, she's got whoa nearly mastered! Enjoy, more to come for sure!

I enjoy uneventful first rides. I'm glad to see you in a helmet (at least while training). (Nice looking horse btw!)

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Yeah, so far everything with me being ON Eve has been done with a helmet. I'll use one until it gets too cold here...we hit -30 Celcius quite regularly in winter so the helmet doesn't fit over all the warm clothing! Won't be doing anything "risky" til spring anyway! :) I usually don't wear one, but I like my brain and Eve can be wingy sometimes!

Congrats on your first ride!! Must be exillerating!!!

"Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Good for you. Good for you for starting her so well. She looks content for such a green horse. Looks she really wants to work for you. As posted above, good for you for wearing a helmet. Nice to see someone responsible enough to do so.

Give yourself a pat on the back.
