I’ve mentioned in a couple posts that I am taking a horseback riding class. Beginning western equitation, to be precise. I found out about the class while working on a story about MSU’s equine science program. Turns out, MSU has a herd of more than 30 horses and offers beginning and intermediate western and English equitation as well as colt breaking and how to be an instructor (I forget what that one is called).
Since I get a tuition waiver as an MSU employee I thought I’d take a class. It’s nice to do something brand new and totally out of my comfort zone once in awhile. I am the only person in the class who has never been on a horse and am at least 15 years older than everyone else.
(H took all the photos including the ones on Flickr (see below))
I get to ride Kid for the first half of the semester and then we switch it up.
You can see more pictures of me and Kid on my new Flickr photostream.
