I was really relieved, when after my disastrous start getting onto a horse, this time around I actually managed to mount at the first go. Unfortunately though for me, Trilka (incorrectly called Trilla in my last horse related post) hadn’t had breakfast. So while trotting, she would suddenly look down greedily at the grass and make desirable noises leaving me clueless as to what I was supposed to do.
Furthermore, the instructor kept shouting, “Baby, raise yourself, raise yourself. Keep you body straight. Look in front between the horse’s ears.” Now I don’t know if you’ve realized (besides that the fact that I am definitely NOT a baby), but it’s rather tough to do all these things at once and keep your balance on a horse that is both hungry and trotting in circles.
My next lesson: Mounting a horse and keeping my balance and doing all the aforementioned things and looking cool 🙂
