Just a little...........

I have to bequick as I am meant to be on my way to work but I had a lesson this morning. Forst ride in three weeks and first ride after all of Sams training. OMG I will post details when I get home from work but it was really good. Great to have someone that can put things in a way I understand. Basically we can't work on Sam until she corrects me and I am more constant in my position. My nervousness has become so bad I didn't realise how hunched over and tight I had become. Sam was fidgity in the trot until I relaxed, sat up straight and looked where I was going. It was like someone had flicked a switch in him - calm, trotting around soft, no where near as much falling in and out!!!!!!!

I will fill you in on all the details when I come home. I don't think I am going to be useful at work as I am on too much of a high!!!!!!!!! :o)

Since it is only Sunday here in my part of the world, I had to look twice at the date of your post! Your positive energy flowed throughout the post and your update on the actual lesson should prove to be a great read! Looking forward to it!

Glad the lesson was a success! I've had the experience of taking a lesson after a long time of riding on my own as well, and it's amazing the things that someone can pick out immediately that can make a huge difference! Hope the new job is going well and I'm looking forward to your next post!
