Horseback Riding Lesson
등록일 2021.11.07 글자 확대 글자 축소 인쇄
Today, my family went horseback riding. My mom and I had a horseback riding lesson! This was the third time getting the lesson. I had a horse back riding lesson few times because the government let the student from elementary school experience horseback riding at a cheap price. So I had few more lessons than Mom.

I was very excited to go horseback riding lesson. We got up early and we ate bread for breakfast. And I chopped the carrot that we bought yesterday. We will give the carrots to the horses after the lesson. Then we went to the horse riding center.

We arrived at the horse riding center early. But no one was there so we looked around and patted the puppies. There are several puppies. There was a horse too. The horse was eating the grass near by. So we gave him some carrots we brought. The horse ate it and followed us to eat another carrot! The horse was so cute. His mane had cocklebur all over from eating the grass.

Soon the coach came. We said hello to the coach. And we asked her about the horseback riding pants. Because we were going to buy the riding pants, and the coach said she could order them for us. Soon, another coach came. She is the sister of the coach. The coaches are all family. And the mom of the coach is the cousin of my grandma! The coach gave us the riding pants. It was cool!

Soon we wore the riding pants, jacket, gloves, and the helmet. The coach said today, I would use a saddle without a handle! Because I have ridden a horse few times now, I can use a saddle without a handle. Yay! I will ride Miso, and Mom will ride Shinvi. Coach helped me to go on to the horse. It was a little unfamiliar at first, but soon, it was very comfortable! It was more comfortable than using a saddle with a handle.
First, we walked a little bit to warm up. The weather was perfect for horseback riding! I gave the signal to Miso to go. The signal is the sound that you can make with your tongue and the roof of mouth. It’s difficult to make that sound. Coach said it took three months for her to make that sound! Coaches all complimented my sound! I practiced the whole week! I’m now glad that I can make that sound.

Few minutes later, we started to practice to stand up. We have to practice this because it’s practice for trotting. We stand up from the horse and sit down again. It looks easy, but it isn’t. It’s hard to stand up.

Soon, the coach said we would try trotting. I will run by myself because I tried trotting few times, and the coach will hold the string attached to Shinvi for Mom. When the coach gave the signal, the horses would start to gallop. I started to stand up and sit down, but Mom was bouncing on the horse. It was Mom’s first trotting. I was bouncing too when I first tried trotting. It’s hard to keep the beat. And I kept putting up my hands and my right hand kept losing the reins. It was hard to follow all of these.

Soon, we walked again. I think my trotting is getting better. At first, I almost fell off the horse! Now, I can stand up, sit down, and keep the beat when I trot!

Now, it was almost time to end of the lesson. So, the coach said we can trot again for the last. We stood up and sat down. It was almost time to end the class. And today, the coaches taught us how to stretch on the horse. After stretching, we went in the smaller ring and the coach helped us to get down from the horse. We brought carrots from the car and gave them to Miso and Shinvi. They ate a lot of carrots! And we gave the carrots to the big horse that was in next stable. I asked for the horse’s name. But the coach said he didn't have a name yet, so I can make a name for him. He was brown, so I wanted to name him something that relates to brown. I thought of Choco. Then, I thought of Cacao. I said to the coach that I wanted to call him Cacao. Coaches said that was a perfect name for him! His name is Cacao from today. We gave him some carrots. And we said goodbye to the coaches.

It is so fun to do horseback riding! The coach said that we can ride together on the field soon! I can’t wait to ride a horse outdoors! I will practice more and I want to ride and run at outdoor sports field. I will write a diary about horseback riding again when I ride outside! I hope the day would come soon!
