First solo ride!

 Yesterday was my first solo ride since my accident in December when I fractured my neck. At first I was nervous, Royce wouldn’t stand still at the mounting block! The pony walking by was in heat and Royce knew it! but after a few half passes he was starting to become flexible and we were off! We practiced a little Volte at the sitting trot and Royce had just the perfect flowing, energetic trot. Then I decided to try something I had never done on my own; I did a flying lead change! On your average horse this would be no problem, but on Royce it’s a different story. Royce thinks that a flying change is an excuse for a free buck. He turns into a bronco at a rodeo. After a few in changes then Royce started to become supple and had a good bend when his arch-enemy “Señor Wind” decided to make a surprise appearance. Royce ran like the wind! He decide that it didn’t matter what gate I asked for; he was going to canter! But, wow, it was a great canter. Imagine flying on the back of your best horse and feeling the wind fly past you. It was amazing! I once again knew why I started riding again. that sheer rush of joy!

After our very exciting ride I gave Royce a rinse down. (Not that he was thankful for it!) He stomped and whinnied in anguish as the water hit him. But I rewarded him with some time grazing in the fresh shoots of grass.

I am not suggesting your content is not good., however what if you added something that makes people want more? I mean First solo ride! Heart of a Lion Dressage is a little plain. You might glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create news headlines to grab viewers to click. You might add a related video or a related pic or two to grab people interested about what you’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it might bring your posts a little livelier.
