I had a riding lesson follorwd by a two hour ride in the forest, on the same horse.  This is my idea of bliss :-).  Though I had aching muscles, the next day. The lesson was spent reminding me about stopping and steering the horse.  And steering at jog.  The lesson went well :-).  The ride went well, as well.  Though, I’m nervous of travelling at jog on the horse, in the forest.  Since the path has a harder surface than the school arena floor.   This is a lack of confidence (by me) in my ability to stay on the horse, at jog. This confidence will grow, with time, Since I am able to stay on the horse, at jog.  But overall the day was blissful :-).
