Horsey Wordless Wednesday - First Riding Lesson

 

First Horseback Riding Lesson

 

My granddaughter had been asking me about riding a horse for about a year now.  I finally took her to a local horse farm for her first riding lesson.  She was in heaven!  As you can see from her expression, she absolutely loved it!  As you can see, she was riding on her own, steering the horse.  She even trotted a few steps.  At the end of the lesson, she went out for a short "trail ride" around the farm.  At the end, she helped untack the horse and brush it.  I know my granddaughter is looking forward to her next riding lesson on Wildfire.

Barbara,

My granddaughter has a passion for horses.  (Takes after me, I guess.)  She has expressed interest in show jumping in the future.

I'm sure these lessons will teach her many valuable life lessons. Helping care for a life that is not your own is quite possibly one of the hardest to learn for young people, but when it is learned they are so much better for it. The time and dedication it takes to care for an animal (especially horses and other large animals) is HIGHLY demanding. It's so great to see individuals of ANY age taking an interest in caring for animals, makes the world seem a little less cold. I hope her love and appreciation for these beatiful creatures continues to grow as she does! I'm sure she will make an excellent rider

Oh my gosh, that is so cute, Brigita!  I know she's hooked now and as Cheryl said, what a great lesson in life for her!  Happy Wednesday!

Cheryl,

I totally agree.  Horses and animals teacch himans of anyn age so much about life.  Horses seem to be in her blood.  Therefore, I believe she will be persuing horses in some way throughout her life.  After all, she  always wants to come over to my house since then she can see the horses.  As long as she sticks with me,, she will have horses in her life.

Debe,

She most definitely is hooked.  Anything to do with horses, she is there, or wants to bee there.

That horse looks like it's trying to fix its gaze on the saddle, to see what that kid is up to!

Myrl,

He is such a good horse.  He took care of her during the whole ride.  It might be that the horse was looking back at her to make sure she is OK.

She's so cute and looks right at home up there! Love her smile and little cowboy boots!

Chrissi,

She absolutely loves the horses.  Believe it or not, she is afraid of big dogs, but the horses, no matter what size, bother her at all.  She looks like a natural rider.
