First Horseback Riding Lesson
Well thanks to a great Groupon deal I signed up MB for her first horseback riding lesson at Bein Performance Horses.
What a treat!!! It was a 90min lesson and I was really surprised and excited to see that the lesson included taking care of the horse. Everything from getting it from the stable, grooming it, preparing the hooves, and on and on! MB got a horse names Brownie..very fitting and he was a perfect little BIG horse. MB learned all the parts of the horse and all the names of the brushes. She did great listening and only a couple times had to be reminded not to go around the back of the horse!
We took the lesson early to avoid the heat…but it was still a hot morning. Not that she would care…she wanted to stay and ride another horse after we done…couldn’t get enough. The trainers were just awesome and patient and I loved the system of teaching balance and comfort with the horse. She rode bareback and had to do lots of exercises working on her balance. She did great! Just another cool thing AZ has to offer.
The whole ride home she kept asking if she could go back tomorrow….I wonder how long we will hold out 🙂
I got the perfect shirt from Smitten & Company I can’t wait to get another one for Halloween…and this one is going to last us quite a few more lessons. Love it….and of course it is orange!
