Cassie and I have had the best time at the stables the last few weekends! We are slowly but steadily learning to ride (Cassie) and getting used to being back in the saddle (me).
Week one of riding went far better than this past Sunday. My horse was SO slow (I like to live life in the fast lane...) so I thought he must be worn out. Well, turns out he is just not into riding English as he only does Western trail rides. Alas, I guess it is good to get all types of experiences, right?
Cassie had a rather stubborn horse that would NOT listen to commands. He was very, very, very naughty; so naughty in fact that she was given another lesson!
Even though our saddle time was far from great we did manage to get a handful of cute photos!!
I also have to admit that I was thrilled that I scored the pink and green saddle pad for the lesson. It is all about the little happys and victories sometimes!
