Look who's riding!

My daughter is a teacher.
One of her former 3rd grade students had never seen a horse up close.
We took him for a riding lesson.

The adults, who'd each ridden a couple of times as teenagers,
went, too.

This kid is a natural!

A few minutes into the lesson, he was off the lead rope and on his own, Frankie leading the way. Frankie, who wants to please, now that's a good teacher.
My daughter rode Alan, the famous show horse!
Her friend rode good 'ole Dandy, the gentleman.

Here are the beginners. They are looking good!
Trotting came easily.

Watch this!
Straight from the walk into a gentle jog.

Good job guys!
