As I'm driving for my horseback riding lesson last night trying to prepare myself with some centering and balance talk and..a few prayers, yes prayers. I think about my past lessons and remind myself I'm really trying and giving it my best. The thing is my Best is very immature and new at this. I try to focus on a few things each time I go...and just thankful I didn't fall off or didn't run into anyone and cause a bit of chaos with other horses... The get a bit moody about things if some are to close other...space and who's in charge kind of stuff. So here's the stable and arena's at FitzJoy that I go to. This week I talked to the owners Daughter/teacher and let her know if I'm causing a bit of trouble with my inexperience riding abilities to let me know so I can go to a different day.
Other things that are going on too is You have to have a strong Core....which I might have when I was younger but not any more...so along with the riding lessons the body needs to be worked...Yoga I understand is a good one to get that going...might have to vamp that a bit more..but I do notice it from my begins lessons the difference.
All new learning experience...and so happy I didn't give up before it all started to click in...might we do that has human's? Give up when in fact it we stick it out and see what happens one more time. Now as I work and function...I'll forget it all and then have to be a repeat offender and begin again..but that's Ok...Not every time will be I'm working with many variables to factor in.
I'm just so darn Happy...I did it...I Cantered with my horse. Can't get photo's because I would drop my phone in the arena some where and that would be good and I would probably loose my grip in the saddle...then what would happen?
