Had a really good lesson today.............
Hi. I rode alot when I was younger and then stopped when I had my 2 children. I have had a few lessons over the past couple of months and just moved riding schools. Had a lesson there today on a gorgeous horse called Opel. She was great, not a plod and very forward going. The RI was very good. She reminded me of where my legs and hands were meant to be going into and around corners, we did alot of work on this. We also worked alot on half holts which I hadn't done much of and at the end we did some leg yeilding and I did it which I was really proud of! The menage is huge, think RI said it is bigger than a normal sized one and we did alot of figure of eight work but added an extra 20 mt circle at the end because the menage was so big and we did alot of work on canter leads.
Just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the lesson and how much I learned!
