Back in the Saddle

Two weeks ago, Jakes became an authentic horseman, when he fell off the horse.  Go here to read about it.....

This past weekend, he got back on Milkshake and looked like he'd never been off!  His instructor told me after his lesson, that when he first got up in the saddle he was so scared he froze.  Jakes won't admit he was scared.

Ms. Eileen worked closely with him to get him comfortable on the horse again and by the end of the lesson, he was trotting around the ring like the pro he is!

Jakes asked to go into 2-point position & he was PREFECT!
Jakes was practicing "posting" and he's lifting more from his pelvis and less with his legs which is how you're supposed to do it!
Check the position of his butt, off the saddle!
He was holding the perfect position & Ms. Eileen shouted it across the ring

These next photos will show Jakes going over a cross-rail in the perfect position once again.  Ms Eileen was THRILLED with his performance!  Look for her in the background of the pictures. lol

All in all it was a great lesson to get Jakes back in the saddle!
