I had mine today. I am just getting back into the saddle again after 8 long years, and I thought it would be easier. But I am finding that my legs aren't as strong as they once were and engaging my core is tough.

Friday I had an English lesson with 2 ten year old girls, which was a big blow to my ego. I was even more crushed when I realized their posts were much better than mine. I used to be able to post beautifully.

So today I had my western riding lesson and I am sitting there feeling all defeated, when I was posting and kept losing my balance. Then I realized I am SO focused on what I used to be able to do, and not focusing on the here and now. So, I put my heels down, lengthened my leg and began to count, 1,2,1,2,1,2.

My trainer hollered out, "That's beautiful! You both looked wonderful together." The rest of my lesson went amazing. I just realized I need to get out of my head and focus on the horse beneath me.
