Today's Riding Lesson..

I guess I have not shown you pictures of Oliver in sidesaddle. Isn't he adorable!

He has been so accommodating for me while I learn.

Oliver has more motion than this, but I am not able to get him to preform at his best yet. If he starts to move out, I lose my confidence and sometimes my balance and pull him back.

I have to have surgery in 2 weeks and because of a fast trip to see my daughter and her family, I will only be able to take one more lesson. I hope I heal very fast so I can continue my training.

Your horse is beautiful and side saddle looks difficult to do. I hope your surgery goes well and you are back on your saddle soon. Have a nice weekend. Sandi

What a gorgeous looking horse Oliver is. He looks so regal and so do you, riding sidesaddle.
I hope you recuperate fast.

I am amazed at these photos -- it looks like you and Oliver have been at this for years. A new horse and a new way to ride -- you definitely are a quick learner!
