I have no photos from this therapuetic horseback riding lesson lesson, but it needs to be documented. It has been just 3 hours in as many weeks since Ben’s first initial freak-out over getting up on a horse. He has progressed much faster than any of us ever anticipated. After riding around the ring several times. Ben decided he’d like to try going a little bit faster. The next fastest gait after walking is called the trot. It’s like a fast walk or jog that can be pretty bouncy for a brand new rider during his THIRD time up on a horse. Ben LOVED trotting. The bouncing one-two pattern of the gait made him giggle uncontrollably. It was infectious and we were all laughing together chanting “trot trot trot trot…”. How amazing is that??
