Lesson 3: He rides solo!

IMG_1508Here’s Ben at his THIRD therapeutic horse back riding lesson, riding atop Spot BY HIMSELF.  Ben continues to surprise us all with his ever-expanding comfort with Spot.  IMG_1525This is Ben tacking his horse.  He is pulling the girth strap tight here, using upper body strength and minimal support.

IMG_1536Here is a little RDI moment of  co-regulation between Ben and his brother as they carry the bowl of sweet feed together. IMG_1540IMG_1543And here is Ben after turning Spot out into the pasture after his lesson.  Now that’s one confident cowboy!
