Lesson #4
I rode Ariel again today. She and I did pretty well for a while before she got kinda tired. I've never seen a horse yawn so much! It was a lot easier to stand in the saddle with her instead of Bubba, probably because Ariel is smaller.
And, a BIG achievement for me today! I don't have to hold on to the saddle horn anymore! I mean, I didn't use it to help me balance or anything, but I would just hold onto it when we trotted. It felt really good to know that I fixed something I knew I didn't need.

Come visit me, Bubba.

Lesson #3
I rode Bubba again today. He had been used for another lesson earlier on in the day and wasn't happy about being disturbed. So he acted all obstinate and lazy. I mean, trotting on him was fun and everything, but I had to fight him for it a lot. He'd do that little I'm-really-just-walking-funny trot/walk thing. It didn't help that it was raining outside the arena, either. I'll just have to look forward to next week. (and maybe bring along a carrot)

Come visit me, Bubba.

Hi my name is Stubbins. I am an 18 year old American Paint horse. My favorite treats are apples. Stubbins is actually an Arabian/Paint. He was born in the Montana Mountains in the end of March and the tips of his ears froze off.

Lesson #2
So today, I rode a pretty little sorrel mare named Ariel instead of Bubba. She had a bit more fire in her, versus Bubba's laid back attitude. I worked on trotting with her, too. I was actually really nervous about going faster than a walk because that was, in past experiences, where things tended to go south. Yet, even though I had to rein her in so she wouldn't run over the horse in front of us (BUBBA), it wasn't too bad.
I have another lesson on Friday. I'll either ride Ariel again or Bubba. I'll let you guys know!

Come visit me, Bubba.

Lesson #1
Yesterday I had my first lesson. I've ridden before, mostly trails or in a pasture, but I've never been formally taught how to ride. I spent the lesson walking around the arena at the stables and going over poles. I knew I could do more, but I wanted to really become comfortable being in the saddle again.
A few years ago, at the friend's house I used to ride at, I had an accident and I'm still not very confident. I hadn't talked about it to anybody, really, because I was afraid that if my parents found out, they'd take riding away from me. Talking to my instructor and the other people in my group actually made me feel a lot better about the whole thing. I wasn't as nervous anymore now that somebody else knew. Next week I am going to move forward again.

Come visit me, Bubba.
