Riding with Maya - lessons on teaching

Last Friday, I was riding with my daughter Maya. We were on our matching dark brown horses out in the pasture together. Maya was riding Belle (our fantastic medium pony hunter) and I was on Jordan (my big Thoroughbred gelding). It was our first time riding these 2 together and we had some fun making up "courses" (a pattern of jumps or obstacles) out of our logs, cavaletti and poles.
 
Maya is a beginner rider and has recently worked successfully to ride without her grab strap (a strap you can put on a saddle to hold on to so you can maintain your balance without pulling on your horse’s mouth).
