We had our lesson this morning :)

Lessons are hard, and I'm using muscles I didn't know I had, and still having to CONCENTRATE to even get some of my parts where they should be even part of the time! But...even so, it is a lot of fun. Sandy had me continuing to work on bend. My Phebes sure doesn't like the leg I'm using. She had me riding circles around her at one point, pushing her out with my inside leg, and tipping her nose in with my inside rein. The muscles in my leg were making themselves known at the end, especially the outer thigh muscle. Not complaining, just amazed at all the biomechanics that actually go into riding a horse!


  1. You both look like you are concentrating in the pictures. She actually looks pretty happy. Do you think she's enjoying the lessons?

  2. Mel, actually I think she likes the lessons much better than trail. She may be an arena horse at heart.
