The morning of October 21 was crisp and misty. Our students rushed out from morning circle to meet Maze and Raja, our two new horses.
While sweet and well-loved thus far in life, they know little of structure and manners and even less about being ridden.
So with the changing of seasons, riding students have become riding teachers and spent the last several weeks showing the girls how life will now be for them here at Belle Meade. There are few things more rewarding than teaching (and being taught by) a horse.
As their instructor, I am excited to share in this experience and allow the students to be present as the horses learn, grow, and make mistakes, just as they do!
