First Horseback Riding Lesson

Posted on August 21, 2010. Filed under: Capture the moment, Good Finds | Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

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!

Adorable! And I have to mention, the first pony I ever rode was named Brownie too! What a great thing this barn is doing by teaching kids to ride bareback first! Riding bareback makes the best of riders.

Keep your daughter riding and you’ll keep her away from boys for years! Just expect it to cost you a mint. It is worth every penny in the long run. Teaches them responsibility and organizational skills and the confidence building is like non other. Enjoy!

Thanks for the tips…it definately is not a cheap sport…but she still is asking almost hourly when her next lesson is so I don’t think we can go too long before the next lesson.
