    wanted to share this , so proud

    My 9 yr old son had his 3rd horse riding lesson to day. He has never had lessons before.
    He has begged to go over a jump from lesson one. His instructor gave in to the pressure and let him today.
    I watched through one eye as my boy trotted over his first jump, it was just over a foot tall.
    He cleared it and with perfect balance. Then that was it over and over again he loved it. He wanted her to make the jump higher. Lucky she said no, I don't think my nerves could have took it.

    Grats Mom !!!!! What a feeling hu? The terror, the "what if", the enourmous pride - I can so relate. Mother of 6 here and ALL of mine "learned" to ride, even if all of them did not make it a life-long love. Its a fine moment when you can almost see the passion and the love for horses and horsemanship in your own child :) Enjoy all of your "mom horse moments" and thank you for sharing with us :)

    Yea! I remeber learning how to jump and the excitment of it all! I'm happy that I have a mom as a rider so that she doesn't cover her eyes when I'm jumping around the cross country course! Good luck with all the lessons and riding!

    Yikes! Jumping after three lessons! That's unheard of. I would definatley make sure he rides on the flat properly and knows how to maintain control of the horse at W/T/C. Also make sure your trainer isn't doing anything that might put him and the horse in danger. Other than that, happy riding! =]

    Stormy- you are so lucky! My mom insists on bringing wine coolers to calm her nerves before I go on XC. She totally trusts my horse and I as a team, but can't help but get nervous. Haha

    I find it nerve wracking watching other people jump so I can only imagine what it must feel like to see your son jump! But good for him!
