Gracie's really enjoy her riding lessons.
Her second lesson taught them to steer, to trust their horses and helped them gain confidence around horses.
Gracie's coach gave her a crop to hold because she was having trouble kicking the horse hard enough to get her going. I talked to her afterwards about it and she said the coach asked her to hold onto the 'whipper-whapper' and that would be enough to remind her horse, Tara, to listen.
They look pretty comfortable.
