I can't believe I did it!

I had a lesson on this horse that has the bumpiest canter in the world, and I sat to it the whole time (that a big deal because I'm still learning how to do it). I also cantered over jumps and FLEW over them. It was amazing. All I had to do was put my hands right next to each other and he went right over with no hesitation. I guess before I had my right hand forward and my left hand behind it. I can't wait till friday before I can ride again!!!

MIEventer you made me laugh!

Well done, there's nothing like the confidence boost you get from doing something well that's a bit tricky.

Hope you carry on, keep that confidence and do great things :)

Good job! It's good that you are learning on a bumpy horse so when you ride a smooth one its even better!

Well done! It's good to get used to horses with very bumpy canters, because there is an endless supply of those horses....trust me..I know!
