Horsing Around #11
After a few weeks, my rising trot was already rusty but didn't take long to get back into it. Practiced speed control because we're going to start working on cantering next. Turns out you can't go directly from rising trot to cantering. You have to make the transition from a sitting trot. I confirmed with the instructor that riding a horse is like riding a bicycle in the the sense that once you know how, you don't really forget it. So we're still persisting with it.
