Riding Echo

Today I had my first horse riding lesson. Well maybe riding isn't the right word, more like slowly walking.
I was lucky enough to ride Echo. He is such a beautiful horse.

I was terrified! I am a bit scared of height and when Echo took his first steps I really thought that I was going to end up on the floor. With help from my trainers I managed to relax a bit. Echo and  I circled the grounds a few times. I learnt how to let him know when to turn and when to stop. Once I mastered my fear it was a wonderful experience.
After the lesson we went to see some other horses. I think Teddy is just the cutest. They teach 6 year olds on him because he is so small.

I also checked in on Blossom. She was the first horse I met the first time I visited the stables.

I had a great time and can't wait till my next lesson.
