Things don’t always go according to plan when it comes to riding horses, especially when you are first learning. Thankfully, there are lesson horse saints out there to teach us the ups and sometimes the downs of riding. Like this pony, for example…
Ponies like this, who make adjustments when they feel their rider become unsettled, are worth their weight in gold, but this little rider wasn’t quite prepared for a halt.
The JN family gives her a 10+ for style though! I know for a fact that I couldn’t topple over as gracefully as she did. I’m more “team face-plant” than “graceful somersault.”
