Great First Lesson from New Trainer!

I had a great first lesson yesterday! I learned things that old trainer never taught me! The trainer was so nice! She took everything so slow cause I was so nervous! She put me on the lunge line so I could work on getting used to the horse and getting my body stable. Its amazing the difference that looking forward and holding your hands straight will do your balance! She also taught me how to strengthen my upper thigh by using to push yourself up not your calves! I have definite work to do there I'm so sore today from it! He is an amazing older horse TB (I think not 100% sure on that) Hes 16.1 so a whole 4 inches taller than my little 15 hh morgan! Defiantly a different ride that's for sure! I cant wait to go back next week!

New pics from my new camera!

 I finally made it out to the barn with my new camera and I took lots of pictures of my boys! Please excuse how dirt they are I hadn't cleaned them up yet!  It was still to wet to ride though so no pics of me on them yet. Hopefully soon though!
