Ooh I might be starting riding lessons again

Ooh I've not had a proper riding lesson for about nine years - I had lessons on Stumpy but that was more about improving our partnership and not focused on me as such.

My local-ish riding school (www.turburyequisport.co.uk/index.php) are taking part in a new initative called "Take back the reins" which is for people like me who have had any sort of gap in riding - which I have.


I've emailed the riding school via their FB page, my main concern was my weight but they've informed me their upper weight limit is 14 stone which i am under :D Whoop!! They also do late night lessons on a tuesday which is the night I wanted. So it might all fall into place. I will have to budget accordingly, I'm not sure if the scheme advises weekly but it's more realistic for me to just have one lesson a fortnight.

Ooh I'm nervous and excited all at the same time. I've had no incentive to ride ever since my broke my ankle - which happened almost a year ago!

My involvement kind of fizzled out after new year really MP. I just wasn't enjoying my time down there - she's a beautiful mare and her owner is one of my best friends but I am not a confident enough handler for her. shame really, she's an ace ride!!
