    First lesson!

    I am taking my first lesson in about 10 years in an hour! I consider myself an advanced rider and I own my own horse. Everything I know about riding has been self taught, trial and error or imitation of what I see other people doing. I'm excited to learn from an instructor with a really good résumé. Just thought I'd share my excitement!

    Just be aware you might have a lot of faults if you've never had a lesson (Not meant as an offence.) But don't feel bad... Being self taught is quite a feat!

    That's great! I'm sure you will learn a lot of new things.
    Let us know how it went. :)

    Hi and welcome.

    I started riding almost 2 years ago, and was very unbalanced in the seat. Started taking lessons and found out Ii had a lot to learn.

    Enjoy your lesson!

    I had a really good time! That hour went by too fast! She said that I had great posture and my hands were good, but I need to work on keeping them closed. She recommended putting pebbles in my hands while I'm riding.
    I am hoping I can use my own horse in lessons soon. The lesson barn is so close to where I board I could just ride him up the road. It's less than a mile.
    Over all though, she said I did extremely well and she's going to put me on a more challenging horse next time. She said I just need to "clean up" my riding a little bit, which I already knew. I had fun and can't wait til the next one!
