After my first lesson with a great German instructor, I felt right away terrific. I admit, it was scary wonderful. My legs were like spagetthi when I jumped off. And the horse speed felt like 100km/h even when he only trotted. But I did it!
I even got to borrow a horse dictionary; English/German/French
Trying to understand what it is I am supposed to do on top of the horse! Umsitzen, ganze bahne….!
After my first riding lesson I went home to my son (9y) Some time later he lookes at me suspicious and said, “Mom, did the horse make a spell on you? You are so happy!”
Glad he noticed. He didn’t know that I had started riding instead of eating pills.
And, I feel great continuing riding, I am doing something for Me! I feel alive.
