Horse Riding

Today, I went for a private RDA lesson at Stocks Farm. I rode a horse called Double Take, and I walked, trotted (rising), and cantered. So much better that last Friday, when I had only 10 minutes on a horse!

I couldn't believe how disjointed I have become. My right hand and leg was moving all over the place. Luckily, Take didn't mind, and I actually got him going quite well!

My instructor, Sue, was very pleased with me! I will go every second week, and ride the mechanical horse in between. Who knows where I'll end up!

  • Thanks for your encouragement. I have been riding a mechanical horse up to now, and that has given me a lot towards coordinating my right side. It's just practice now, on a real horse. It may never come ok, but I'll keep on trying! Thanks ??

  • Good for you nutkin. brilliant progress
