Riding lesson went great! Met up with an old friend as well!:)

The horse went great, she was a lovely ride. I popped a cross-pole too and was asked to even jump a course but I'm too chicken lol. I'm moving lesson though to another group because I want to take it more slowly to get my confidence back.

One of my ankles is still playing up, I think one leg is longer than the other..

We did flat work tonight.
Did some walk stop transition, trot circles and cantering. As basic as the lesson was I am happy with rode tonight!

Also when me and another girl were cooling off the horses, two twins decide to race up the other side of the indoor arena on the ponies. We were oblivious to them as we were chatting away unconcerned when both out horses tanked, went bolting down the arena, I lost my stirrups and near came twice but stayed on managed to gather myself up again! The riding instructor didn't even see because he was sorting out another pony but he told me I sat to her well and gave me a rosette lol!

Great lesson last night.

More flatwork, did some poles and a few jumps. Jumped some 50cm's from trot and canter- I fell of last night, she locked onto the jumped and I lost my balance and couldn't get myself up off her neck as she had no mane I could hold onto(hogged) so I went out the side door lol! No major injuries and I must say I laughed so much!

I got back on and went into it again but this time she pulled my reins out of my hands and I jumped and cantered off after it with no hands! I must say it was the best jump and canter I have ever sat to!
Maybe should try riding with no reins more often!
