    Looking good. Where you sore after you rode. I remember when I got back in the saddle I forgot how hard riding actually was and I could only last about 20mins in the saddle.

    Okay here goes....since I got no answer lol

    If you are just starting back in riding a good idea to attach a monkey grip to the front of your saddle..."just in case";)

    I always like to ride with gloves on...just feel more comfy and you dont get that ingrained dirt in your fingers from the reins:p

    Wont comment on your position at all...as I dont feel it is needed here but Well Done...you look very happy:D

    ok Sarah, you can be part of our re-beginners group as well. We are all going to get ride fit again and find a little walk/trot show to go to. Most of us are all the same, had lots of time out of the saddle after having the kids. So any one else wish to join us.:)

    Haha thankyou!

    I kinda get fustraited with myself. I know how its done however I don't have the muscel etc to ride / carry myself properly and I feel like a sack of potato's! OMG my lower legs swing like I've never seen them do before yet when I used to ride full time I always got comments for how still my legs were lol.

    Bring on the pratice and the pain of it! haha

    Thanks Babe, but dont feel im that much of a "beginner" to need a monkey strap, i have ridden for years but had "time off" whilst having the kids and trying to get fit again but i do recomend them alot with the kids thou,
    and i cant stand gloves, i find it interferes with my feel for the horse and it doesnt bother me about dirt in the fingers.
    Cheers:)

    Good to get lunging lessons. They help so much when you get back into riding. You have no stirrups or reins. Its very good for balance and using your lower leg.

    Then when they get you to rise trot with no stirrups omg its such a killer when you get off. Your legs feel like jelly and you feel like you are going to fall over lol

    As seen before...a few piccies of a quick 5min ride so no real time to think about position etc...he's now been lightly lunged for the last few weeks because we're working on trust issues and also fattening him up :).
    But he's over sensative and evades the bit that way so it'll mostly be long and low and some fun bush rides for a while!:
