You can have visions of galloping across the fields in front of majestic houses reminiscent of Mr. Darcy Jane Austen or even the harbor dreams of competing in a world-renowned equestrian event, but learning to ride is a journey so sit back, or if that would be in place, sit back and enjoy the ride.
Learning to ride is unique, like nothing else you will ever do. Sitting on the back of a live animal is both a privilege and a learning curve. Riding is a science, a discipline and an art all rolled into one. Learn from those who have gone before you and avoid some of the most common traps and riding mistakes starting from trivial to the most important.
