We had a new student rider at Sandalwood today, Gabriel. Gabriel and his Mum Wendy came out to see us today. This was Gabriel's first equestrian encounter and he coped very well. We first introduced Gabriel to all of the horses and then showed him the tack and grooming tools. The first task was to learn how to lead Bucky which went very well. This was followed by a very thorough grooming session. We had 4mm of rain yesterday so all the horses have enjoyed rolling and getting very dirty. We saddled up and Gabriel mounted a horse for the first time. It was great to see the pleasure on his face as he sat up high on Bucky. We did a few circuits of the round yard and Gabriel quickly developed a good balanced seat. He was quite confident and was able to ride without a lead rope in his first lesson. Quite an achievement! Well done Gabriel. We are looking forward to your next visit.
