I finally took a riding lesson while at school! I took a taxi to another boarding school nearby which has an equestrian program, and had a half-hour lesson aboard one of their lesson horses named Buddy.
He was a sweet little horse and a lot of fun to ride. He's a Morgan cross. His trot was really smooth and fun to ride--especially to sit! My instructor at first said we would probably only trot because his canter isn't great, but we did canter and eventually jumped some cross-rails. I'm really excited for future lessons!
I also, predictably, hung around for a little while to take some pictures of some of the other horses around the barn. Here are some of my favorite shots.
